Camille or No Camille

26 boxes.  Each of them contains a french revolutionary screed, only one of which is by colourful Dantonist Camille Desmoulins.  Pick the box by pure chance, you win a hundred pounds but forfeit the right to a defence in any subsequent trial you may be embroiled in when your faction falls out of favour.

Very similar to Noel Edmunds’ channel 4 blind chance juggernaut, but with calves.  26 boxes, 25 full of meat, one with a real live baby cow.  Riveting.
