Marry Through Contests!

One of the many punitive reality television shows in Japan had a man subsist wholly through entering contests in magazines.

In America, we are soon reaching that level of potential self-sufficiency. Given that stationer Papyrus is raffling off a wedding ring and tabloid newspaper The New York Post has a contest for a wedding dress (albeit one from Filene's), all you need is to find a contest for a caterer, a clergyman, and a venue and you're set.

Next innovation: baby showers and funerals through contests!

Don't mock wedding dresses from Filene's. Some of those are high quality. Haven't you ever heard of the "running of the brides?"
