I don't want Graham Murkett to have to go out to work -- it's important that he spends all his time half-dressed sitting in front of his computer. So a while back I decided that he'd done a deal online with a guy from Nigeria and was now set up for life -- though his millions haven't changed him one bit.
Flight Of The Conchords have just used exactly the same idea (season 2, episode 2). The sums of money are different and they end the episode broke again, but the "Nigerian scam turning out not to be a scam" idea has now officially been done.
And maybe it already had been done in countless other shows; maybe the idea just wasn't that clever in the first place.
But Graham now needs a different reason for not needing to work. I wonder if he might have inadvertently started a pyramid scheme way back before everyone realised they were rubbish...?
