What started out as an innocent board game inspired Rich Smith to undertake a daring crime spree across the United States - a journey to break the dumbest American laws on the statute books. In the Land of the Free, it is illegal to:- Lie down and fall asleep in a cheese factory (South Dakota)- Play a trumpet with the intention of luring someone to a store (California)- Catch a fish with a lasso (Tennessee) Rich's first problem was narrowing down the huge choice of laws to just twenty-five.

The second was persuading his mate Bateman to come along, to do some of the driving - and possibly provide bail money.

The third was finding someone who was willing to help him break his first law: one of San Francisco's oldest statutes, which related to oral sex.

No, Bateman couldn't help with that one. Join Rich as he attempts his one-man crime wave - almost as difficult as a one-man Mexican wave.
