    Disconnected first acts: the game

    Given the propensity for The Simpsons to have a first act tangentially tie into a second and third acts with entirely different arcs and premises I was wondering if we might envision ourselves as Simpsons writers and try something similar. Who knows if this will be any fun, but I sure am curious.

    Poster A will come up with a plot idea for a Simpsons episode, poster B will do the same.

    Poster C will then attempt to make the poster A's plot the tangentially related first act and find a way to bridge it into the second and third acts of poster B's (and also maybe give it a snappy episode title). If Fear of Flying and I (Annoyed Grunt)-Bot can do it, so can we.

    I'll get the ball rolling; "Homer is convinced to let a tech startup operate out of his garage."

    From Duff Blimp's post:

    The Simpsons buy an Stock Tracking system, which tracks the prices of various stocks and Cryptocoins. The tech startup does everything to convince Homer to invest in Bitcoin, which he mistakenly believes is an idea to sell bacon for pennies.
