I get Max's wider point. I once took part in a TV quiz show and won what was (in those days) quite a large amount of money.
Quiz shows are popular. I always cringe when the accumulated "jackpots" are announced to a wide-eyed "woooo" from the audience. The sums are (relatively) peanuts and the TV companies are filling their time with cheap labour. Same with the WP, innit?
If the contestants, willing filling, start to cost too much (or the ratings drop) the quiz will disappear.
With regard to the Style Invitational, I'd be content with ink and a reputation. First, though, I must get my head round what the devotees regard as funny. I've had to take a step back because I've been a bit discombobulated by the cruelty of some of the ho-ho-ho and have found myself stepping in to defend the butts of some of their jokes (literally in a recent example).
But, hey - we all have to begin somewhere - surely?
