A murder-mystery/thriller where it turns out the guy with intense bondage polaroids stuffed into the shoebox in his toolshed is totally innocent, and actually develops a vendetta against the serial killing fuck that ruined his neighborhood in the first place.
There is no reason to,
Be ashamed of poetry. It,
Is natural. But you should,
Still do it in private,
And wash your hands afterward.

A mockumemtary about business attire which claims, among other things, that the purpose of the necktie is to facilitate autoerotic asphyxiation in the workplace, and that the business suit is a funerary garment symbolizing the worker's separation from the land of the living

*Tweaked version of the "Society for Putting Things On Top Of Other Things sketch from Monty Python where instead of a British social club, the society is composed of ancient aliens building pyramids and stonehenge and is specifically the "Society for Putting Rocks on Top of Other Rocks"

*Comedy of errors where improper translation between french and english results in an unintentional marijuana sale (since the french word for 80, quatre-vingt, literally means "four-twenty"

*Sharting themed parody of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" entitled "Totally Shit When I Fart"

*In a world of anthropomorphic frogs there's a race of sewer-dwelling troglodite frogs/ living under the city as a result of both sex3s jacking it in the shower and they're external fertilizers

*Footage of D-Day set to the Benny Hill theme/Yakety Sax

A horror story where nothing truly unusual happens: it just documents a series of coincidences that get more eerie the more attention the protagonist (and thus the reader) pays to them. By the end, the protagonist is a gibbering mess with little connection to reality because he is unable to separate the feeling of meaningfulness from the idea that something actually has meaning, and thus is unwilling to stop trying to assign meaning to this series of events, as it grows and fewer and fewer meanings can even be projected.

lately I've been trying to write a short SF story about an effort to ease climate change by colonizing Earth like planets in order to ease the environmental strain on the earth, as well as preserve the species on planets that aren't on fire. The story follows the expedition of a ship of white supremacists, who were given a ship partly to get them to stop opposing the colonization effort in exchange for an all-white planet, and partly on the assumption that they'd fail and everyone else would be rid of them. They do, and we are.

*A documentary about the history of drive-by shootings going all the way back to ancient chariot archery

*Demom [sic]- A comedy about a typical suburban family wherein the mother is secretly a demoness from hell

*A dirty version of the legends of Paul Bunyan, talking about stuff like "he had to use tall kitchen bags instead of condoms" and stuff like that

*gag in a comedy: a gun store called "Chrome Depot"

*Mockumentary set in the distant future in which a crackpot claims that Mt.Rushmore must have been built by space aliens and not by the USA

*A superhero named Unreliable Man, whose power is to never be there when actually needed

*An office printer is posessed by the devil

*Arthurian comedy in which Sir Kay is replaced by a stoner with attention problems named "Sir Que"

20 years after 80% of the human population spontaneously petrified, the survivors who rebuilt civilization within the statue-filled cities discover that the statues are, one by one and at a very slow rate, reviving.

A story wherein it is general knowledge that the earth has been under siege by space aliens for years. However, nobody has actually seen any aliens. This is because there actually are no aliens. What actually happened was that at some point the populace en masse just started attributing natural and manmade disasters like hurricanes and sea-level rise to alien death beams

less of a story and more a character concept or a scene.

A highly spiritual Shiaolin monk is attacked by a vampire, and after ingesting a large amount of his blood, the vampire unpleasantly discovers that since chi lives in the blood, and said monk has spent a lifetime mastering the manipulation of his own chi, that he has left himself highly vulnerable to the monk, via the Law of Sympathy. Hilarity ensues.

*A sitcom about a workplace where the early morning shift are all space aliens and the late night shift are all vampires

*A combination of a televangelist faith healing program, and an ad for a dubious penis enlargement drug. (Something like RL televangelist Peter Popoff's "Miracle Spring Water" bit, except instead of the people on the program claiming that the water healed them, they're claiming that it made their penis grow)

*Horror film concept: An insane neat freak gradually starts murdering all the people in their life who do not spark joy in them

*Superhero film about a character who is the logical extension of the Incredible Hulk from Marvel Comics and the Beast from the Unbreakable trilogy. The character has many different personalities and every one of them has a different superpower. The character would be stupidly overpowered if they were sane and able to use any of their powers at will, but as is each is tied to a different personality.

How about an X-Men type superhero film where the superhero gene only gives you powers if you have only one copy of it. If you have two copies of the gene it just makes you super crippled.

(Sort of akin to the malaria-immunity-and-sickle-cell-anemia gene, or the cholera-resistence-and-cystic-fibrosis gene in real life)

A creepypasta where the monster under your bed is still a terrifying eldritch horror, but also just wants to be helpful; tossing long-lost pens out from under the bed when you need them, and helping you plug in your phone charger when you inevitably fumble with it in the middle of the night.

There was a great Goosebumps episode I watched with my great-niece not too long ago.  Ventriloquists dummy that wants to help the kids out, but he's evil so all of his solutions are worse than the problems they face.  Not because he's trying to hurt them, but because it's his nature.
