bad joke file: rob realizes he's fifty years too late to write for rocky & bullwinkle...

Scene: Mr. Peabody's Improbable History. Mr. Peabody and his pet boy, Sherman, go back in time to witness an argument between Karl Jung and Sigmund Freud [note: confirm the two were even contemporary. Does it even matter?] A servant boy, perhaps, an employee who doesn’t want to work for Jung anymore, for some reason, and another that doesn’t want to work for Freud. Some kind of labour dispute, some kind of mismatching, without it being creepy or anything. Eventually Mr. Peabody solves the dispute by having the two employees trade jobs, where they are much happier. The final conversation works around the boy who originally worked for Jung, who simply didn’t appreciate any of that dream nonsense.

Mr. Peabody: Well, Sherman, there it is. The boy [give him a name] is finally where he meant to be, which isn’t really much of a surprise.

Sherman: What do you mean, Mr. Peabody?

Mr. Peabody: Well, Sherman, everyone knows that Jung is wasted on the youth.
