What to do with Bin Laden? http://www.halfbake...th_20Bin_20Laden_3f
An earlier attempt at a halfbaker-composed musical with songs by lewisgirl, Guy Fox, Unabubba (obviously), beauxeault, 1percent, Mephista, lsenater, DrBob, and myself. [pottedstu, Jul 04 2002, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       tw - give us a vague plot outline and is it going to be a stage or film musical, and who on earth would back it? (and shouldn't the idea be in HB:alternative forms?)
sappho, Jul 04 2002

       The plot concerns the attempts of a brilliant young computer scientist to construct a forum for intellectual debate, whilst being attacked on all sides by trolls, hackers, server failures and custard-based projectiles.   

       Every good musical must have the following elements, however I leave it up to the rest of you how to fit them in: Nazis, the afterlife, matchmaking, transsexuals, gangsters, lord high executioners and nannies. Oh, and at least one list song.
pottedstu, Jul 04 2002

       Those who think this would be a good idea might like to read "What to do with Bin Laden?", our noble re-write of the Sound of Music and assorted other songs. One hesitates to say "Baked", but certainly there are lyrics by UnaBubba. (*sigh* whatever happened to lewisgirl? we had fun when she was around.)

       She's off somewhere buying shoes.

       'stu: It would be quite easy to get the Nazi's into it. The name 'Jutta' is the German pet name for 'Judith', and 'Judith' means 'Woman From Judea', in other words, a Jew. Its so simple, why didn't you think of it first?   

       Matchmaking is simple. po is //TOTALLY SMITTEN WITH A FELLOW HALFBAKER//   

       The afterlife could be a dream sequence of the perfect Half-Bakery.   

       The gangster could be trolls and what not.   

       The lord high executioner is PeterSealy.   

       nannies, i'm having trouble with. Can't you just cut them?
[ sctld ], Jul 04 2002

       Realy, i thought it was your nose?
[ sctld ], Jul 04 2002

       nannies may be hard to find, but we certainly have enough ninnies... (groan)

       I'm extremely relieved to see that nobody has suggested modifying the titles of well-known Broadway songs and musicals along Halfbakery lines.

       ... yet.   

       Besides, you'd just end up with a lot of dreadful puns, like HBesque Pinafore ...
8th of 7, Nov 08 2013

       I still think this would have been a great idea.
