From The Idea Jar: Startup Babies

Sometimes when we dig into our idea jar we find something we cannot remember coming up with. This is going to be one of those.

Bouncing off Sally’s recent Ladies Aren’t Funny improv class, this could be considered a line to start a scene. Maybe even a good line? Either that, or we were trying to pitch a Muppet Babies-like spin-off for Startups.

The idea is:

“There are no babies in Startups!”

While a quick Google search may seem to challenge that idea (image below), I think I stand by that statement. Anyway, create with that what you will, Internet.

These babies are looking for venture capital.

Our Idea Jar never seems to find itself running low on ideas neither of us remember coming up with. Check out all of our Idea Jar posts for items you can make your own.

From The Idea Jar: The Penny Retires

Just like Toronto mayor Rob Ford, we are back with an Idea Jar post (timely humour FTW)!

This one comes from two different inspirations.

The phasing out of the penny here in Canada (see you in hell, one cent coin!) and an old Saturday Night Live sketch based on the tumble of the U.S. dollar.

Our take on the penny would be the now useless coin getting a send-off to its retirement by the other Canadian coins.

You are free to do with this idea anything you think is funnier.

From The Idea Jar…

Here’s what could be a routine post for us, because we love to share and we have an actual jar full of our ideas. The jar:

Idea Jar

Whenever we think of a new idea for a show or a sketch or even something funny or weird that we could use later we write it down and stick it in the jar. Often we will say out loud “Put it in the jar!” The jar is pretty full, so we thought it would be fun to post ideas here. You are encouraged to take one and run with it.

M Night Shymalans

Our first idea from the jar is:

A sketch troupe called the “M. Night Shyamalans.”

The group would always end their sketches with a twist. We thought the pressure to come up with so many twists for all those sketches would certainly cause the troupe’s members stress.

Do with that what you will. And let us know if it gets your creativity flowing.
