There should also be a dancing monkey on the stage too.

Yes, and then the bass player is suddenly transported to World War II and gives his captain a grandfather clock for no apparent reason and then gets shot in the head.

Then because the band can no longer play - someone could come on stage and start telling really funny German jokes! Oh...no....hang on....that might be a bit dangerous if there were any Germans in the audience......

I've written down several ideas myself lately, which have came to me all of a
sudden. I don't know how interesting real Python fans find the, but the first idea was something in the vein of...

A funeral. The overall atmosphere is obviously serious and quite muted. Then it's time for the organ and church music. It all starts out greatly, but after a while the organ player hits several wrong notes. (His own reaction may very well be of the aggressive type). HOWEVER; the important part is that the crowd gradually involve themselves in the playing. They start arguing about what exactly went wrong. Extreme music theoretical terms will be used by the crowd - who just can't agree. Towards the climax everyone has forgotten that they actually are in a funeral.

Well, that was the first idea I wrote down, and I thought it was a good idea back then, but now as I wrote it here it didn't quite sound as interesting. It's a little... weak, as everything relies on the discussion/argument about the playing. I'm sure it's possible to work more on it, but I've got nothing more for it right now.

Good thing that I've got a couple of more ideas in the back hand then.

Seems like my idea stole the spark of this thread.

you could have the corpse just climb out of the coffin and walk away because of all the arguing. that would be interesting.

god i would do that if everyone started arguing at my funeral. i'd sit up and go 'oh for goodness sake. this is the one day where everyone thinks about me and you go and spoil it by being selfish!'

and then get up and walk out.

Heh - the corpse idea sounded quite interesting.

You said it yourself that you're in need of ideas. I don't know whether you find this interesting, but what the heck; is there anything to lose?

It's simple, but perhaps - or; hopefully - efficient.

Setting: Funeral, christening, wedding - you name it.

'plot': The priest shows up and starts his monologue. His presence is serious and he uses pompous words; BUT there is just one thing... his penis is about to appear more and more clearly. His cape is 'open' so people can easily see the penis 'between' the parts of the cape. AND, to the important part; the priest seems to find this completely natural. He must not do anything about it. In his opinion, there's nothing awkward or irregular about letting ones penis show while in the middle of a monologue in church.

Think about that one. Simple, absurd, but maybe someone might find it... at least worth smiling at? I sometimes get ideas in my head, and I spontaneously burst out laughing - all by myself. I don't know whether it's a good thing or not.
