    Is it anything like the Gun powder plot or the Boston Tea Party?
    Ah I know, it's a plot by you dastardly imperial people to regularise the digestive sytems of the world.
    And I know that doesn't make sense.
    It doesn't have to.

    Ah, I realized I should have said, who knows what a Raisin Bran LIGHT Plot is.

    But Logos, I kinda like your answer better anyway.

    I think you might have to give a bit more context as this is not a standard theatre term.. to the best of my knowledge

    I know that I've heard this term before, I just can't place it right now! I think that it might be in the notes for my lighting class from last semester...and I don't have those on me.

    You don't think calling a lightplot consisting of two scoops a Raisin Bran plot funny? Maybe I'm just disturbed and twisted.......

    Grog, now you've got me wondering, what the heck is a mousepooped plot.

    One made in Vectorworks because as you're inserting symbols they look like little mousepoops.
