Subj: INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
We are in receipt of your letter dated November 25, 2002, wherein you claim to be suggesting an original idea regarding the use of primates and a corporate pizza sponsor in a new reality based television show.
Please be advised that our crack staff of writers has already fleshed out 16 episodes of that very same concept for the Mark Burnett Comedy Hour, coming to a network near you in summer 2003.
Further, we claim intellectual property rights to any and all thoughts you may have in the future.
We have found that if you will clear your mind of all intelligent thought that you will gain much more enjoyment from this season of Suvivor.
Thank you for your unsolicited ideas. In case any of this is unclear, we have also asked our crack team of public relations specialists, Bubba and Guido, to stop by your home and encourage you to understand.
Best regards this holiday season,
:rofl Can't believe Bill has access to my mailbox.
Who else is looking forward to the Burnett Comedy Hour? :hiya
Superb, Bill. :laugh
Except that after the first season, they'd change the name of the series from "16 Chimps in a Pizza Hut" to "16 Chimps", issuing a press release that they're going to focus less on the Pizza Hut connection. After the second year, it would be cancelled, and 2 years later, the show "Pizza Hut" would be a smash hit.

Actually, the 16 chimps could RUN the Pizza Hut and it would be a break-out hit sitcom that would run for years. Paulie, you're onto something. You wanted Bananas on the Pizza, right? Everyone loves Bananas. :banana
(did you ever see that SNL skit for a show called "The Pizza Place", based on what the Pizza Place does after "2 Guys and a Girl" cut it from the cast?)
I missed the SNL skit, John, but it sounds more interesting to follow the action in the Pizza Place than to watch Berg fall for Scarey Eileen and Sharon be married to Johnny and the other crap that passed for "shit-com" in the final year of that show. Yes, *hiding head in shame* I appear to be the only person who saw all of the episodes of that show. I'm still in love with Pete, I can't help myself.
Um, I saw most of the episodes, too. I'll hang my head with you in shame. I'm just a Traylor Howard fan, even though there was NO WAY I could get into the new show that died after about 2 episodes.
I am onboard with both you John, and LG.
I really liked the first year of Two Guys... Very funny show and Berg and Pete were great characters.
That show slid downhill even faster than Dharma and Greg. Something must have been going on at ABC during that time as they trashed two good shows in near record time.
Bad things continue for Traylor as her latest show Bram and Alice didn't make it past it's second episode.
Further trivia. Amanda Bearse, who was Marcy on Married With Children, was the main director of Two Guys...
Count me in on liking Two Guys and a Girl.
I love Ryan Reynolds so much I saw Van Wilder - and liked it - don't know if I could have liked it if he didn't play Van. He's very charismatic.
Back on topic - I will watch Survivor no matter what - but I find it's much easier to watch in a warm climate, surrounded by water. Even watching them get rained on is less appealing.
