More silliness (temp post)

Recent communications:

Dear Mr. Quick,

We have no interest at this late date in filming a sequel to the Bette Midler vehicle "Beaches." Even if we had, we would never green-light a project entitled "Sons of Beaches."

Howard Harriman,

Tri-Star Pictures
"Because we can't make a 4 star movie."


Mr. Quick,

Please stop sending us your ideas for reality television shows. We are not interested in "So You Think You Can Lap Dance," "Dancing With the Steers," "The Amazing Aryan Race," or any other idea you might have.

Robert "Bob" Pritchert,
NBC Legal Dept.


Dear Mr. Quick,

We are pleased to announce that we are optioning your film script "Super Karate Monkey Death Car." Do you have any thoughts as to who should play the flying grannies?

Carla Bing-Jones,
Doug's Films and Fill Dirt

I think I would actually watch a show like "So You Think You Can Lap Dance." Try FOX...they might green-light something like this! :)

I second that.

Why not "Run 5 Ultra in 7 weeks" or "7 broken bones from 7 ultra's". Sooner or later one has gotta take.

That's funny.

I actually think you could sell the concept of "Dr. Nic, Medicine Woman" if you could promise them that Nic at Left-Right-Repeat was attached as the star.

It might fly with someone like RuPaul attached, but I think you can get Dr. Nic himself far more cheaply.

And yes I mean "cheap" in both senses.
