    “It’s, umm, hidden. Yeah. It’s hidden in a secret location that only I know.”

  2. Dr. Shrinker says:

    Call it a WMD and you won’t be able to keep the publicity about it down

  3. Sutter_Kaine says:

    Wasn’t that the first line from the French existential play “End Game”?

    Dr. Shrinker, you’re on the right track. After calling them WMD, make a friend with the kind of luck that I have. Some of the suspicions and rumors about me have been laughable, but people go on convinced. The most fitting one for this situ was when I was trying to convince a group of friends to produce a stage version of Dr. Strangelove, and I was trying to perfect Peter Sellers’ ridiculously fake Russian accent. One of our well-meaning locals called INS, and I got an interview in our town’s federal building. I like to think they had no doubt of my citizenship before taking me to the nearest ‘intel location’ . . . but the decision was probably made by another well-meaning local.
