You know readers, in all the years (one of them) Miss Soft Crab has been around, we have never ever used anyone else's content in our posts. Sure, we refer to other people's stuff, but on the whole, all the stuff eaten, seen, thought about then communicated in these crabby pages comes straight from our brains to you. That is, until now!
Readers, hold on to your hats because have we got something pretty special in store for you.
Today, Miss Soft Crab is delighted to bring you the results of MINUTES and MINUTES of creative effort put in by Miguel, Legsley,Tickle, J and I in a little electronic-mail based game we like to call Imaginary TV Show Workshop.
First, What is Imaginary TV Show Workshop and why is it a thing?
Ok, very quickly now because I have a tendency to go on about things.
Imaginary TV Show Workshop is a series of imaginary TV show concepts we have come up with to add some colour and movement to the emails we send one another when arranging our weekly catch up at the Edinburgh Castle of a Wednesday night.
We do it because one night, whilst at the EC, we were discussing how lame it is when TV shows put too much double and sometimes triple entendre in their names. Par example: Hart of Dixie, which, as Wikipedia advises, stars Rachel Bilson as Dr. Zoe Hart, who after her dreams of becoming a cardio-thoracic surgeon fall apart, accepts an offer to work in a small medical practice in Bluebell, Alabama.
The day after this conversation took place, Tickle sent us an email with his very first Imaginary TV Show Workshop concept and from then on, there was no stopping us. Readers, you would not believe how easy and addictive coming up with fake TV shows is.You know how Thomas Edison said genius is 1 per cent inspiration, 99 per cent perspiration? Well there is no doubt in my mind that that brother NEVER played Imaginary TV Show Workshop because all the gold you're about to read came out in about 25 seconds flat. We are the 1 per cent, everybody!
OK, ok I've gone on long enough and I don't want to make you guys wait a second longer for what's coming. It's time to let the imaginary TV shows speak for themselves.
First up, let's check out the original concept Tickle sent us.
