Scene: Erie Public Library, Sammy checking out VHS’s for the week with the library closing in 10 minutes. Sammy’s friend is behind him waiting patiently, infront of him is a man wearing swishy gym pants with his sweatshirt tucked into it, a wild hairdo, and jesus fish earrings hanging from his ear lobe….Sammy watches the man in front of him waving at a silver dome (the kind that has a security camera in it).
Guy, finishes waving and looks at Sammy: “Big Brother’s always watching.”
Sammy, hesitant: “Yeah they are always watching…..”
Guy: “Have you ever read “1984?””
Sammy, having only read 70 pages of the book: “Yes, I did read it.”
Guy: “Yes, gotta be careful with Big Brother. You know that new Health Care Bill?”
Sammy, knowing this coversation will not go well: *nods* “Yes.”
Guy, states matter-of-factly: “Well, the new Health Care Bill allows the government to put chips in our body.”
Sammy: “Oh it does.”
Guy: “Yes, on page 1000, I can give you the page number and the exact section where it says they can implant chips into people.”
Sammy, turns and eyes his friend behind him hoping he would help him, to no avail.”: *just stares at the crazy man.*
Guy: “I’m not worried about it though, nature will take care of us in the next few years….”
With that a woman calls for him to come and check out his books and Sammy is left wondering how a crazy man could read and understand all the nuances of an in depth Health Care Reform Plan, and wonderswhy the government would ever want to moniter that crazy man. The entire time Sammy is praying the man doesn’t have a weapon.
I guess I’m just lucky to get all the crazy people in line. *shakes head*
