To be a writer you need one thing, and one thing only: Post-It notes. And Dan Harmon? He’s got a lot of Post-It notes.

Taking to Instagram, Dan Harmon posted a picture from the Rick & Morty writer’s room, where the creators are hard at work on the massive slate of new episodes ordered by Cartoon Network. In the picture, Harmon is standing over a meeting table filled with post-it notes, each containing ideas for the series which, Harmon says, are from writer Rob Schrab.

“The amount of season 5 ideas Rob Schrab can come up with in a day is just awe inspiring,” Harmon wrote, “from a certain distance at which I should have stayed.”

And they are, certainly , some ideas. No one can argue these are not ideas. In his post, Harmon highlights a few of his favorites, including “Planet powered by chips and salsa” and “when-wolf.” Personally, I’m a fan of Wesley Sniper and “Rick discovers the 11th Commandment.”

Hat tip to Collider for transcribing a list of the ones I can’t quite make out. The fourth season of Rick & Morty comes to TV this November.

Look, if you can’t understand the pure genius of “The People’s (Basketball) Court,” I can’t help you.

Although now I’m wondering what a “when-wolf” would be. Also “Jerry makes a log cabin w/ hair” sounds like something the Beard Hunter from Doom Patrol would do. Also: “Bark-nado.”
