Naked ploughing

I have to admit that this probably isn't going to take off in any Amish areas any time soon. But I can see that we might be able to make a new reality series out of it anyway. Or maybe:

Farmers in an eastern Indian state have asked their unmarried daughters to plow parched fields naked in a bid to embarrass the weather gods to bring some badly needed monsoon rain, officials said on Thursday.

What do you think? We've got a hit on our hands? Get a few Iowa corn fed girls doing that and we'll hit the top of the ratings?

Or are we simply straining too much to try and create the next hit....although, to be fair, given some of the things they've made reality shows out of, is it possible to strain too much?
