Malex's Thoughts

And now for something completely different!

We’ve been bouncing this idea around for a while now. At least, Gabe has… To be honest, at first I was pretty skeptical, but the more I thought about this premise the more excited I got! The banter! The nonsense! What fun!

Of course, it remains to be seen what will happen to poor Snufflefungus, but that’s what next week’s episode is for!

The funny thing is, originally I wasn’t intending for this episode to be a two-parter. We were having so much fun we just got carried away! Gabe and I sat down to write, but before we knew what was happening we had an episode which was fully twice the length of a normal episode.

The best part? As hilarious as this episode is, the next episode is even funnier!

As a side-note, this episode stands out from a production standpoint as being the first episode to include a for-pay sound effect. I couldn’t find (or produce) a free courtroom standing up and sitting down effect, so I literally paid for one instead.

Yes, this Malex Minute episode cost me an astonishing five dollars out of pocket to produce. So enjoy it!

ttyl!

Transcript

~~ Introduction

Bailiff: All rise! Presenting Judge George Jason Jeremiah the Forth, presiding this fair day over the courtroom proceedings of the trial of Ohioville vs. Snufflefungus in the matter of… I can’t pronounce it. Now everybody sit, except the accused.

~~ The crowd sits.

Bailiff: Accused, are you sittin’ or standin’?

Snufflefungus: I don’t know, your majesty. I’m doing my best.

Judge: That’s enough, bailiff Bailiff. Son, do you know what you’re being accused of?

Snufflefungus: No, your honor.

Judge: Good, we may proceed.

Defense: The defense would cordially like to offer an objection at this time, your honor.

Judge: Yes?

Defense: The defense finds the prosecution to be slightly shorter than is strictly called for by Ohioville Revised Code. We move to have the prosecution fitted with platform shoes immediately.

Prosecution: Objection! Fashion sense?

Judge: Sustained. Prosecution, we’ll let your shortness slide this time. Don’t let it happen again.

Prosecution: Duly noted, your honor. At this time, the prosecution would like to move to proceed directly to the sentencing.

Judge: Wait, can we do that?

Defense: The defense was up late last night, and would like to rest.

Malex: Excuse me, isn’t Snufflefungus innocent until proven guilty?

Snufflefungus: I thought I was innocent until I did something wrong!

Prosecution: Objection! Separation of church and state?

Judge: Sustained. But the insolent audience member has a point. I believe the accused has right to due process.

Defense: Do what process? Is this going to keep me from my rest?

Prosecution: No rest for you Bob!

Judge: Order! Order!

Bailiff: A large pepperoni, your honor?

Judge: Yes! Order one immediately! Prosecution, call your first witness! And make it snappy, before the defense falls asleep.

Prosecution: The prosecution calls to the stand… that guy!

Guy: Who, me?

Prosecution: Yes, you!

Bailiff: Place your hand on this Bible. Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help you God?

Guy: (Drawn out.) Maybe…

Bailiff: Good enough! Sit down!

Prosecution: So, un-named guy, did you, on the night of last week, wander into the laboratory of that fluffy ball of evil over there?

Defense: Objection! Name calling?

Judge: Overruled. It was funny. Please answer the question, nameless one.

Guy: I’m kinda thinking of invoking my fifth amendment rights here.

Prosecution: No! Don’t do that! I’ll give you a cookie.

Guy: Okay. Yes, I wandered into the laboratory of that fluffy ball of evil.

Snufflefungus: I’m not evil!

Prosecution: And did you, upon entering this laboratory, find… these?!

Guy: Should I say yes?

Defense: Fifty dollars says you say no.

Prosecution: No! Yes!

Guy: Yes!

Defense: No!

Judge: What just happened?

Prosecution: He admitted to leading a ring of goat poachers. Bailiff, take him away!

Guy: But– But– Hey, where’s my cookie?!

Defense: I didn’t get to cross-examine that one, your honor!

Judge: That’s alright. To be fair, we’ll prevent the prosecution from cross-examining one of your witnesses.

Defense: Excellent!

Prosecution: For my next witness, I would like to call Linus the Laptop!

Linus: I didn’t do it! I swear! I’m innocent, I tell you!

Judge: Nobody’s accusing you of anything yet, son.

District Attorney: That’ll come later!

Judge: Shut up, district attorney! Nobody likes you!

District Attorney: Aw, shucks!

Bailiff: Place your hand on this Bible.

Linus: Do I look like I have hands to you? Moron.

Bailiff: Well then hover yourself over here and sit on it.

Defense: Objection! Is it even appropriate to sit on the Bible?

Judge: What is the rule for that?

Defense: I don’t even think this thing should be a witness, it’s a laptop for heaven’s sake!

Prosecution: What?!

Linus: Hey, hey! I’ll have you know sir, I’m–

Judge: Order! Order!

Bailiff: Another pizza, your honor?

Judge: No, not yet. Where’s the first one?

Bailiff: It’s on the way.

Prosecution: May I begin questioning the witness?

Judge: You may proceed.

Linus: Don’t I get a say in this?!

Prosecution: (Screams.) Stop shouting, (Calm.) it’s not polite.

Malex: Hey everybody, it’s Malex. I hate to do this to you, but we’re out of time for this week! So tune in next week to find out what happens to poor Snufflefungus!

Yay!

I've been waiting for this episode ever since I heard you guys coming up with the idea! It's just so wonderland-ish!

I love all the weird objections.

Defense: The defense finds the prosecution to be slightly shorter than is strictly called for by Ohioville Revised Code. We move to have the prosecution fitted with platform shoes immediately.

Prosecution: Objection! Fashion sense?

Snufflefungus: I thought I was innocent until I did something wrong!

Prosecution: Objection! Separation of church and state?

Defense: Objection! Name calling?

Judge: Overruled. It was funny.

And I love the nameless guy's voice! He's hillarious! X-D

Bailiff: Place your hand on this Bible. Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help you God?

Guy: (Drawn out.) Maybe…

Bailiff: Good enough! Sit down!

Guy: I’m kinda thinking of invoking my fifth amendment rights here.

Priceless! I can't wait for the next episode!

Everything looks perfect from far away.

Uncanny

Prosecution: And did you, upon entering this laboratory, find… these?!

Guy: Should I say yes?

Defense: Fifty dollars says you say no.

Prosecution: No! Yes!

Guy: Yes!

Defense: No!

Judge: What just happened?

Prosecution: He admitted to leading a ring of goat poachers. Bailiff, take him away!

This was priceless!

Malex: Excuse me, isn’t Snufflefungus innocent until proven guilty?

Snufflefungus: I thought I was innocent until I did something wrong!

Poor Snuffy! He's just doing his best!

It's amazing! That's EXACTLY what court proceedings sound like. Did you guys do research in an actual court of law? Great work, guys! I loved this one. It's hilarious. How very Marx Brothers-like! I can't wait to hear how it ends.

We should take our comfort from God's word, not from the circumstances of our lives.

That was GREAT!! And it was well worth waiting most of a day to see it ;)

This reminded me of a play we did awhile back called "The Fairy Tale Courtroom." It was so funny! (I have a DVD if anyone want to see it. It's actually alot like this Minute! :D

Fave quote:

Judge: Order! Order!

Bailiff: A large pepperoni, your honor?

Judge: Yes! Order one immediately!

X-D X-D

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

I don't care what the devil's gonna do!

The Word and faith is my sword and shield

And Jesus is Lord of the way I feel!

God gave us music, that we might pray without words
