Imagine a scenario of being mugged. Sucks, yes, but an everyday occurance. Now I am not about to give some two-bit unimaginitive criminal jack shyte. So I decided that should an assailant attempt to apprehend me, I would start gagging, spitting up, and mention in a gasping voice that I must have the new plague they announced on the news today. Then proceed to do more gasping, clawing at my throat, and possibly writhing around on the ground in mock convulsions.
I never said I was sane, did I?
