Top Ten Vigilantes


Hey kids! Have you ever thought about a career in vigilantism? Have you ever wanted your school of higher learning to offer a course in street justice? Well, maybe you should! Being a professional vigilante certainly has its perks. A Bachelors of Vigilante Arts degree (or B.V.A.) pays just as well as a degree in English, Philosophy, or Liberal Arts (trust me, I know), but you get much more notoriety. Remember, it may not be the job that you want, but it may be the one that your town deserves. 

Seriously, don’t become a vigilante. There’s a reason why all of the ones on our lists are fictional characters.
