Dream Diary: “Bzzzzzzzzz”

We were writing a sitcom about college-age men but struggling to come up with jokes. A sample scene, between two people:

“Our dorm has stickers of bees on the door.”


“They say ‘Bzzzzzz.’”


“But the girls’ dormitory doesn’t have bee stickers.”


“Why do you think that is?”

“Well, with girls it becomes dirty, doesn’t it?”

“What do you mean?”

“It means vibrators. Bzzzzzzzzzzzz. You can’t say that.”

“Oh, I guess not.”

I was politely asked to stop photographing Rev. Billy Graham’s cornrows.

“I’m just trying to get some reference pictures of 1970’s furniture,” I protested.
