Dear Genius…

posted in: Family, Media, TV | 0

Well my episode of Genius has just aired and as expected my brief moment of fame has fallen foul of the editingΒ  people. Although after having spent over 2 hours filming the 30 minute show back in June, I wasn’t alone in missing out. And it was jolly good fun to do regardless.

So for all the people that have asked, here’s my Genius idea…

Drunk drivers should be made to blow into children’s inflatable toys…

To ease the life of a parent, children’s inflatable toys should be handed to the local police at the start of the week. These inflatables will then be taken out on patrol. When a motorist is stopped & breathalysed they are given one of the specially adapted toys. During the week the toys will gradually get inflated and they can then be collected at the end of the week. Parents can then sit back & enjoy the weekend without the hassle of blowing the damn things up themselves!!!

I did get to pitch this on the show. Not quite as well as I’ve just done, largely due to the fact that I somehow seemed incapable of saying the word ‘breathalyser’. The idea was discussed briefly and then quickly dismissed as not Genius πŸ™

Undaunted, I still have a few more ideas to throw at Mr Gorman πŸ™‚
