Automatic Inspiration #1

Filed under: Automatic Inspiration — John Leavitt @ 2:36 pm


Okay so here’s the deal. In an effort to harness  the creative engery of the internet, I’ll occasionally post one *thing* and ask all you funemployed types to make a *thing* about it. A  story, a pitch idea, a song,  a joke, a comic, whatever about it in the comments section. These will stay open indefinitely  but I’ll post the best *thing* if everything goes well.

The picture above was found at Ugly Luggage in Brooklyn and bought for two dollars.  There is nothing on the back. You must include the phrase or idea “They really shouldn’t have been there, considering.”



  1. Mr. and Mrs. Smith (Hitchcock not Brad and Angie) with vampires (semi-“the hunger” inspired), the woman in the left-hand bottom corner facing the camera is there with her sister. They really shouldn’t have been there, considering the fact that both of them have slept with the bride. Both women have restraining orders to be 50 feet away from the bride at all time. The happily married couple will soon get a rude awaking when they learn that their marriage at their church have been invalided since the sisters who are also vampires killed the priest in order to get close with the bride again. comedy issues when the bride falls back in love with the sisters and the groom goes after them in order to save the woman he loves.

    Why yes i did start my drinking quite early today how could you tell?
