Well, you can always make a round robin "fanfic" groop story out of it. Fan stories are legally protected, I think, as long as they're listed as such (with respect to the copyrights and as long as no money is attempted to be made off of it). On my Transformer Newsgroup, we do RPG style round robin stories, where everyone jumps in and continues the story. It often breaks off into several story directions, getting sillier by the post. It can be a lot of fun, and I always wanted to do one here. How about I start?

There are a million Groo stories in the naked city (the cities naked, not Groo). This is one of them.

Great. Now I am responding to my own posts.
For all the lawyers out there, I waive any copyright rights I might have on
any post I make to this list suggesting any story line or idea. There, that
should hold in a court of law.

Thanks to all youse for trying let me down easy. I appreciate it. By the way I was only trying to be groofy and add to the general groofiness on the list with my story idea. It was a joke. I didn't think either Mark or Sergio would go for something as ridiculous as a story about Groo and Rufferto being melded into one being. This is Groo, after all. There are standards.

Suds, I'm guessing that you won't be getting a response from ME on this one, because anything approaching a story idea is like a stake through the heart to a vampire. If he looks at your idea and uses it, or anything within 5,000 miles of it, he is left open to be sued for infringement, etc.

And trust me, even if you would never think to do this, people do all
the time.  My wife is an attorney and there was a case pending that
almost delayed the release of the movie Twister because somebody had
written a screenplay that had a tornado in it (I think it was the Wizard
of Oz (not really, but about that similar) and wanted full ownership of

Our main role is to enjoy the stories and thank the very talented crew.
(Oh yes, and to eat cheesedip and fray a lot)
