My mask, Tonto, he wanted my mask!
|Apparently in W. Virginia it is illegal to wear masks except for very specific reasons.|
Conversation between the Lone Ranger and W. Virginia State Policeman along a dark country road:
SP: Sir, you’ll have to remove your mask.
LR: Oh, no, you need to understand that this protects my identity!
SP: Precisely sir, that’s why you need to *remove* the mask
LR: But I work for the good of humankind! I right wrongs! I rescue the weak!
SP: OK, sir, Now step over to the side of the road and remove the mask!
LR: I wear a white hat! I help catch the bad guys!
SP: That’s my job, sir, you just leave it to me. Now REMOVE the mask!
(scuffling sounds, stage right)
SP: OK, now get this, just take the ma - - ow! That’s it!
(wet hissing sound)
LR: Ow! Stop what is that stuff! Burns my eyes! Silver!
(hoofbeats sliding to a stop)
SP: Hey! That thing bit me! What the heck, hey, get away, OW!
SP: (leaning into car for radio) Yeah, backup and animal control! Yes a horse! No its not funny and I am NOT joking! Ow ! Ow! Dang!
SP: Stop! I’m telling you to stop!
LR: OK, Silver, now! (boot steps) Hi Ho Silver! And awaaaayyyyy
(hoofbeats receding into distance, stage left)
