    Yes thats a good idea. Try a visual joke.

    There is a very good example of visual joke at http://www.videoforums.co.uk/ftopic1350.html

    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc

    And an absolute classic it is too. I had an idea of a sort of commercial a while ago but can;t see me gettign round to doing it. A sort of spot cream advertisement. Do all the corny "Not going out because of that unsightly blemish?" sort of voice over whiler our poor dude is looking in the mirror.

    tell him eht emiracle fo the new wonder "Spot Away" product that guarantees to hide unsightly spot immediately. He goes out to the shops and comes home with his shopping a paper bag. He empties the bag of shopping onto the kitchen table and we cut to him having got ready to go out, only we can;t see his face. Anyway, we eventually moce tohis face only to find out the bag is "Spot Away" and he is wearing it over his face, with eye holes cut in it. Well, the spot is hidden!

    Or maybe the movie can be about the journey to some sort of psychic fair with all sorts of expectations about what's going to go on and they get there and find a sign outside that reads "Cancelled due to unforseen circumstances".

    Now that one always crack me up.

    Looks like Millsy is placing an excellent idea for the next competition.

    ... psychic fair with all sorts of expectations about what's going to go on and they get there and find a sign outside that reads "Cancelled due to unforseen circumstances.
    As well as being a an IT Project Manager, Mrs Jammy is also a professionally qualified Psychic Medium (Honest she is). She is not at all happy about this joke having heard it a million times. She last heard it in the spring of 2043.
