Out of Context

One of our T-shirts that’s been picking up in popularity of late bears the slogan, I’d love to help you, but I’m dead. We had a particular context in mind for this when we created it, but of course that context isn’t necessarily obvious at first glance. We knew this and deliberately left it this way, because we thought it was one of those sayings which could be interpreted in a number of ways and which might, therefore, be more enjoyable to people without the context, allowing them to create their own.

Today, write something that creates your own context for this saying. You could use it as the first line of a story or as the inspiration for a piece of writing, or you could brainstorm a list of possible contexts to see how many you can come up with.
