RegularJOE (Director) Featured Comment: "You’re a great writer! This made me laugh, but also had a lot of deeper meanings beneath the humor. I particularly liked the one about the mime, the tooth fairy, the four words, and "I’m not religious". But I think probably any of them could work if a voice-over artist found an inspired way to give a dark/funny reading. Voice-over artists… you’re up!" CONTRIBUTE HERE
* “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it and it lands on a mime and it kills the mime and we had a party to celebrate the killing of the mime would you come? Yes or no answer.”
* “Me: There’s no such thing as the ‘Tooth Fairy’. Kid: Well, where do all the teeth go then? Me: The ‘Tooth Monster’. Kid: Why does it give me money then? Me: To buy your soul.”
* “For me, the human condition can be summed up in four words - the needless focussing on trivial and irrelevant details - and the fact that you immediately want to yell, ’Hey! That’s more than four words’ proves my point.”
* “I’m not religious but if I was I’d choose one of them religions that tell other people what they can and can’t do and threaten them with stuff if they don’t obey.”
Spaceship (Audio Curator) Featured Comment: ”This is an amazing reading of the Platypus script by scriptsoup’s son Oisín. What chutzpah! And great improv skills! (“They’re super deadly with their poisonous spikes on their feet.” Hahaha!) The audio quality is a bit dodgy, but the performance is spot-on brilliant. Great job!”
