Puns Of Perdition

I am currently developing a new procedural drama for KBYU about a team of seminary teachers in Florida that solve murders after class. It’s called CES: Miami.

Just to give you a little sneak peak of what’s in store… at the beginning of each episode, one of the seminary teachers will always show up at the crime scene and while removing his sun glasses, he’ll deliver a smooth, gospel-inspired, one-liner. Here are some examples of what I mean...

“Looks like the truth must have (removes sunglasses) cutteth him to his center!”
“I guess she hoped to (removes sunglasses) endure all things!”
“Looks like his soul (removes sunglasses) hungered!”
“I guess this companionship (removes sunglasses) went on splits!”
“Looks like she put her shoulder (removes sunglasses) to the wheel!”

Also as a back up, there’s also another procedural show I’m working on called Letter Of The Law And Order In The Kingdom.

But that one obviously needs some more work.

Nice. My husband and I call that red-headed sunglasses guy "Strongwords." Just in case you need ideas for a character name.

Anything to keep David Caruso working.

Matsby said...

Yeah, hopefully we can get him to play Brother Strongwords.

And great Spinoff idea, Cartoonista!

Thanks for the comments guys.

Don't forget, he doesn't just remove the sunglasses, but he also tilts his head. That's an important part of the formula. *take sunglasses off, tilt head at an odd angle* continue line.

This may be the best you have come up with in a while. Well done to you sir, well done!

"That young lady is (removes sunglasses) tight like unto a dish."

Mark said...

"Looks like the hands just said to the head (removes sunglasses) we have no need of thee."

In the opening sequence, they need to ride through the Everglades in an airboat to the music of Choose the Right.

Looks like someone (removes sunglasses) didn't use his Liahona.

Matsby said...

Thanks guys, these are all great!

Sistas, I didn't realize you guys had the blog up and running again. I am happy to see that. Looks like I have some reading to do to get caught up.

Looks like yesterday he ate, drank and was merry (removes sunglasses) because today he died.

(Also I don't know about these word verifications but the one I had to seriously type was 'dinglick')

this is one of the funniest things I've read in a long time. I'd give a really long descriptive acronym for how funny I thought it really was, but honestly it wouldn't do justice for the real amount of laugh out loudedness that actually happened.
