One guy asks a question. The people with him each take turns answering. Their answers get more and more ridiculous.
So, you've got the gang of protagonists. They're facing a problem. In order to solve it, one character asks the others for their input. They reply in a quick succession, one after the other, each with worse and worse suggestions. Example:
Alice: So, does anyone know how to get the penguin past airport security?
Bob: Get it first-class tickets?
Charlie: Give it a briefcase?
Dave: Give it a wig and call it Mister Chairman?For bonus points, change the third one to a pop-culture reference OR an example of Biting-The-Hand Humor. Related to the Zany Scheme. Often takes the form of The Triple.
