Story Ideas That Leave You Speechless

And by speechless I don't mean the idea is so tremendously awesome that you wonder "Why didn't I think of that?"

I mean the story ideas are so ridiculous that you wonder if the writer was drinking or tripping on acid when they came up with it. For example:

A stage version of the Wizard Oz using only three actors with a coatrack as the scarecrow.

E=mc^2 is the formula for happiness.

A romance where the female main character is human and the male main character is a dragon... How does THAT work?

Public Service Announcement:
Unless you're Hemingway,
Drinking and writing don't mix.
If you're going to drink, don't write.
If you're going to write, don't drink. (or do drugs)

ETA: That last bit was meant to be a joke, a riff on the don't drink and drive thing. It doesn't matter to me in the least bit if anyone drinks or does drugs while writing. :)
