I had a dream that there was a crossover between Finding Nemo, Shark Tale, [numerous other franchises that are based underwater], and My Little Pony.

And it was somehow the funniest and most well-written thing I've seen in a long time.

I've found myself being the technical lead on a rom hack where the team were previously just sending links to individual files back and forth.
