See thread title.

I'm on my "My Name is Earl" rewatch streak and it just hit me: A more perfect premise for a humorous adventure game there is not. Seriously, almost every episode is basically a fetch quest or something else adventure-gamey.

For those who don't know: "My Name is Earl" is a television series that ran for four seasons on NBC. The premise is that after being hit by a car, petty crook Earl discovers the concept of Karma, and makes a list of all the bad things he's ever done. The series then follows him and his hilariously simple brother Randy, as they try to make up for all of Earl's misdeeds.

Some examples of his list items include

[LIST]
[*]Made fun of people with accents,
[*]Faked death to break up with a girl,
[*]Stole a car from a one-legged girl,
[*]Made a lady think I was God,
[*]Got Catalina deported.
[/LIST]

... you get the picture. The series was slightly less brilliant in the long run than it promised to be, but it was filled to the brim with weird characters and sweet story lines. They ended on a rather disgraceful cliffhanger, which I've never quite forgiven them. But I digress ...

Make a "My Name is Earl" game, Telltale! Please. Take it from someone who owns almost all of your games: Earl and you would make a great team.

I made a poll. You can only vote yes, because nay-sayers don't help the cause. Also: Reply to this thread if you like the idea, so lots of folks see this.

[Oh yeah, I happily waive all intellectual rights your lawyers may feel are coming to me for making this suggestion. Just in case.]
