The Steam Engine Defense

Post by PhineasQP » Sat Aug 12, 2017 7:07 pm

Defense attorney Chad Barnett addressed the jury: “I implore you, ladies and gentlemen, to find my client not guilty by reason of insanity. Yes, he robbed that bank, but he did so under a powerful delusion; he was convinced that he was Napoleon Bonaparte and that he needed that money to build an army of giant nuclear powered ducks. I will refer to this as the Steam Engine Defense.”

Judge Willoughby leaned forward and said “Steam Engine...? Please elaborate, counselor.”

“Well it sounds like a loco motive to me!” Barnett shouted.

The judge beat him to death with his gavel.
