My wife and I started going to a yoga class.

Besides the great stretches and relaxation, I came up with some interesting ideas.

In one pose,( I forget the official name..I call it the wrestling starting position)you put one of your feet in the air. While looking into the mirror, I thought with the right sock and googly eyes...I could create a snake puppet.

It could come up behind me and say...Go ahead....eat the apple.

I shared the thought with my wife, and she smiled, and said "everyone in the room is meditating in peace...while you are creating a puppet."

Inspiration comes at odd times.

Anyone else care to share, an unexpected time and place that you created a bit.

Original please....no stock or hack jokes....

3 am, all the time.

A loud snore is rudely interrupted by greased lightning..... then the idea is promptly forgotten as I promise myself I will remember everything in the morning,

Digital tape recorder might help.

Mitch Hedberg had a great line about that:
" I think of something that's funny, then I go get a pen and I write it down. Or if the pen's too far away, I have to convince myself that what I thought of ain't funny."
