Deep in the rubble that was once the Musée Juste Pour Rire, construction crews have uncovered a treasure trove for fans of JFL Gags. The discovery of several boxes of scripts describing gags that never made it on the television show has sparked interest from the prank show community. Questions are swirling around what has now become an archeological dig. How did these scripts get buried under the old Musée? Who is going to curate this collection of clown history? Who even cares?
