Couch potato

WRITER

I’m writing a screenplay about a couch potato.

STUDIO

Hate the idea. It’ll never work.

WRITER

The potato does nothing except sit on the couch

 for the entire movie. Meanwhile, this entire world

is happening around him.

STUDIO

Stupid. Absolutely ridiculous. People will

never watch it.

WRITER

But all the elements around him will

be pushing him to move – there’s even

a love interest…

STUDIO

Still won’t sell. Too cerebral.

WRITER

The potato has a rabbit, too, that sits on the

coffee table and watches him the duration of

the film. He chews carrot sticks, and the

couch potato swears he hears the bunny

saying, “What’s up Doc?”

STUDIO

A pet rabbit staring at a couch potato?

The entire time?

WRITER

Yes.

STUDIO

Fucking brilliant! I want the spec on my desk

first thing Monday morning.

About 365 Things to Write About

I'm inspired by almost anything and everything creative - nature, architecture, art, words, music...I like to roam along streets, through foreign countries, and within my mind where the world is full of endless possibilities. I dream of being an idealist, but I've experienced too many harsh realities for that wish to ever be true. Therefore, I look for the hope and the good in small nuances, and I express my thoughts and feelings about the world around me on pages and canvases whenever I can.
