Are you a fan of television mystery shows? Ever thought of writing one? Or any kind of television show? If so, here are some tips to keep in mind.
- If staying in a haunted house, women should investigate any strange noises wearing their most revealing underwear.
- If being chased through town, you can usually take cover in a passing St. Patrick’s Day parade – at any time of year.
- It’s easy for anyone to land a plane, providing there is someone in the control tower to talk you down
- Once applied, lipstick will never rub off, even while SCUBA diving.
- The ventilation system of any building is a perfect hiding place. No one will ever think of looking for you in there and you can travel to any other part of the building without difficulty.
- Should you wish to pass yourself off as a German officer, it will not be necessary to speak the language. A German accent will do.
- A man will show no pain while taking the most ferocious beating but will wince when a woman tries to clean his wounds
- When paying for a taxi, never look at your wallet as you take out a bill—just grab one at random. It will always be the correct fare.

- All single women have a cat.
- One man shooting at 20 men has a better chance of killing them all than 20 men firing at one.
- It does not matter if you are heavily outnumbered in a fight involving martial arts. Your enemies will wait patiently to attack you one by one, by dancing around in a threatening manner until you have knocked out their predecessor.
- When you turn out the light to go to bed, everything in your room will still be clearly visible, just slightly bluish
- Dogs always know who’s bad and will naturally bark at them.
- Rather than wasting bullets, megalomaniacs prefer to kill their archenemies using complicated machinery involving fuses, pulley systems, deadly gases, lasers, and man eating sharks that will allow their captives at least 20 minutes to escape.
- A detective can only solve a case once he has been suspended from duty.
- If you decide to start dancing in the street, everyone you bump into will know all the steps.
Okay, tongue was inserted firmly in cheek. But sometimes, you just want to sit back and have some fun.
