LG! Now you're lighting a fire under me. I'm going to send my proposal to Burnett and see what he has to say.
From: Mark Burnett Enterprises, Corporate Legal Office
To: Deceptively Wiry Paulie
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,
