Marge and the invisible unfeelable car….
Marge sat looking at the ticket flabbergasted. What the sam hill??!!?!
How can you get a ticket for hitting an invisible car? This whole thing was like a weird nightmare/circus of a dream. And yet, she had pinched herself plenty of times and not woken up.
She looked up at the judge. Surely this was all a mistake, candid camera? or…maybe a Rémi Gaillard prank? and Remi would pop in here at any moment making sense of the whole shenanigan..
Finally her name was called.
Marge sighed and went forward. Yes?
“You have been charged with backing into and totaling Ms Finnegan’s car. How do you plead?”
Marge’s lawyer shuffled his papers, gave her a quick look, and cleared his throat. “The defendant has chosen to enter the plea ‘not guilty’, your Honor.”
The claimant’s attorney began the case, showing pictures, bills from auto mechanics, witnesses who say they had been in the car and were able to tell the car was no longer drivable even after all the labor that was put into it by the auto mechanics.
Marge’s mouth just continued to hang open. If you cannot see the car, and cannot feel it by touch…
how the heck could you really tell it worked? She could not understand how anyone could say they had been in it…How did this work? it felt and looked…just like air?!?!?!?!
Were they lying? were they functioning on some other plane or dimension than her? They admitted they could not see or feel the car but “knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that they had been “in” the car”. They could …”sense” it. For that matter …how did the auto-mechanics work on it? what a great scam that could be…perhaps everyone should start selling insurance for invisible cars…after all you never know when you might hit one…if you can’t see them!
The judge said the evidence was racking up. She had to admit it was a bit….
Good grief, how could the auto-mechanics even be brought up with perjury even if it WAS a fake “emperors new clothes” kinda thing? no one could actually prove the invisible unfeelable car did not exist….could they?
What would you do?
Do you think you could beat the case?
