If this is a reference to me, mine isn't a shitty idea.

It's an idea that will inevitably draw comparisons to stories which have dealt with a similar hook.

It will spark pigeonholing, for people who like to pigeonhole as a matter of expediency.

I stand by my story, but can't convey it in a single sentence.

I think loglines are a shortcut to thinking, and reading.
