WARD OF THE STATE


Sweetie pie, listen. After consulting my attorney
I've decided not to release myself
into your custody.
Instead, I'm going to be a ward of the state.

I'm going to live in a large old mansion
that has been converted into a home
for people like me.
I plan to engage in many amusing activities,

table tennis chief among them.
It's been quite awhile
since I last picked up a paddle.
I'm probably a little rusty.
