    If FSU Were To Create A Figure Skating Sitcom, Who Would You Hire 4 The Writing Staff

    A while back in the Survivor thread, james and genevieve both said some dangerous things. Had I been drinking a beverage, I would have either snorted it up inside of my brain, or spit it out all over my computer and monitor. I didn't post about how funny their posts were, and their great senses of humour have stayed with me. Until this thread popped into my head! Finally I'm starting it. So they would definitely be on the writing staff and I'm pretty sure my little pony would be the head writer. Her one-liners should be world famous. And I think maybe heckles should be included to bring some bite and shock value to the team. Of course, ESTA should maybe be the co-head writer, but who knows when she'd ever show up for work??!!

    So who else should be on the writing staff for our FSU figure skating sitcom...who has the greatest funny bone with the posts they make here at FSU? I, of course, am I given!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Southpaw for the cranky snark and colorful language.

    Reuven for the plumbing issues and/or sexual innuendo.

    Prancer to correct people and make sure they get their facts straight.

    my little pony because she won't waste time using capital letters or punctuation

    jamesy to ask pithy questions.

    Southpaw was my first thought, although I love the rest of PL's recommendations

    And in turn, I would also suggest PrincessLeppard to bring in the pink and pretty and glitzy and sparkly. (and 4 inch heels....)

    my little pony - for uproarious one-liners that would make Sophia Petrillo say "Ouch".

    orientalplane - for her brilliance, erudition, avoidance of cliché, and good editorial judgment with regard to such questions as "How much whimsy is too much?"

    siouxdonym - because I'd like to watch a figure skating sitcom that mixed high comedy, noir, and sioux's philosophy of exploitation-absurding one's way to enlightened ego-death (in a family-friendly way, of course).

    PeterG - witty and pro-social, he could keep the peace between bickering writers while coming up with very good stories and dialogue of his own.

    Rex - for his excellent sarcasm and snappy one-word episode titles.

    me - not because I have the talent (I don't), but because it sounds like a more attractive gig than anything I'm qualified for.

    Where versification is required, skatingfan5, Vagabond, and the prose-poet Southpaw could be called in (at which point they'd begin their progress toward more permanent positions on the writing staff).

    With this staff, I think we might come up with something better than even Two And A Half Men.

    When it goes into production I want to be the Australian judge
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    You need a good editor, and for this task I suggest the philosorapter falling_dance, who not only understands but can explain the meaning of multisyllabic word strings that the likes of you and me can only gaze at and wonder.
    Be with me always—take any form—drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!"

    No writers needed, just some well placed cameras! You can not do better than the daily rink stuff. But, I do enjoy many of the offerings of the FSU community. Thanks and keep it coming!
