This is a re-enactment (in the style of Rick and Morty) of an actual conversation that took place in a US courtroom. Below are excerpts from the insane transcript. A court reporter actually had to type this.

Did this not get posted up a few weeks back? Either that or I am getting real bad Deja vu.

Been busy with a ton of paperwork for insurance. Writing too (one-handed). And lurking of course.

I found this yesterday.

The mix of regular and fantastical is what makes it funny, I think.  :)

For a CollegeHumor video, it's also oddly sweet.

This is how my next paranormal mystery is going to start, folks!

Seriously, what the hell happened? :0

This week, an emergency room in the Pacific Northwest was briefly quarantined after five people—including two police officers and a hospital worker—experienced mysterious hallucinations from an unidentified illness believed to be spread by touch.

According to Oregon Live, the enigmatic incident began early Wednesday morning when a 54-year-old caregiver in North Bend, Oregon, called police to report seven or eight people “trying to take the roof off her vehicle.” Police say they found nothing, but after the caregiver reported the unseen vandals a second time, sheriff’s deputies escorted her to a nearby hospital for suspected hallucinations.

Shortly afterward, however, one of the deputies began experiencing similar symptoms and returned to the hospital. Soon after that, the other deputy, a hospital worker and the caregiver’s 78-year-old patient also began hallucinating and were hospitalized.

A hazmat team was subsequently deployed to both the hospital and the initial residence, but was unable to locate a common source of contamination. Blood tests also failed to find anything unusual.

According to police spokesperson Patrick Downing, initial investigations suggested the 78-year-old patient’s narcotic fentanyl patches could be the source of the hallucinations, but that explanation was later ruled out.

“Investigation has found that all those patches and potential medications that may have caused the symptoms have been accounted for,” Downing told KVAL News. “The vehicles, equipment and uniforms have been checked with no contaminates identified or located on or about them.”

Authorities say the investigation is ongoing.

they all ate at the same pizza place for lunch.  a pizza place which grabbed the wrong bag of mushrooms out of the back storeroom.
