This scenario has not happen yet buy it is only a matter of time before it will be reality. Because you have the good fortune of being an enlightened reader of Foolishness...Or Is It?, you are privy to the sad future that awaits us.
Please allow me to set the scene...
- We are in a court of law in the Good Ole USofA in the not too distant future.
- The trial in process involves a case of a very gruesome alleged murdered victim which has been capturing headlines for many months.
- The alleged murderer of the alleged murdered victim has been arrested and is standing trial before a jury of his peers.
- An eye witness who saw the alleged murder of the alleged victim from his first floor bedroom window just 10 yards from where the alleged murderer is alleged to have done his alleged murdering has just been called to the stand and has been duly sworn in.
This is the point in the proceedings where strange things start happening. The eye witness is asked a series of questions. The eye witness makes no attempt to answer any of the questions put to him. He is very attentive to the prosecuting attorney but remains completely unresponsive.
Judge Houston steps in and summons the two attorneys to the bench and explains to the prosecuting attorney the reality of modern societal evolution in present day Good Ole USofA...
Henry, you are wasting your time asking verbal questions of the witness. You witness does not talk. He only texts. He is not being obstinate. He really is a cooperative witness. He simply has forgotten how to communicate verbally.
Would I kid u?
