Are you smarter than a fifth grader?

In light of the recent suspensions for dirty hits, Jeff Foxworthy's gameshow comes to mind.

Instead of telling the world you are not smarter than a fifth grader, suspended players should have to go before a camera and say: "My name is........, and I have no respect for the health and well-being of my fellow NHL union brothers."

Maybe then the players will realize just how serious hits from behind are.

Can you imagine the embarrassment and backlash each time this happens? That video clip alone, played over and over again on television, would do far more than any fine or suspension.
