Going to 2020 for Normality

by Anonymous | Score: 4900

Rebecca Poncini has been fired from McDonald's for insubordination. It has been reported that she didn't like the new plastic cups, and she protested saying, "This is Californianess."
Yes, you heard me right. They even took away he work-required safety googles. You might be asking, "But why do you need safety goggle at McDonald's?" To answer this question we most jump to our correspondent Jamie Gorbechov who is talking to a tolerant paramedic. 
"Paramedic, why do McDonald's employees need safety goggles?"
"Well, Jamie Gorbechov, it's because of a recent surge in the amount of people who have superpowers. Employers feel that you need safety goggles because otherwise said super humans will spit on your bed."
"How does that work?"
"Well, lets ask our stern laboratory technician Susan Sanders."
Susan say, "Because I said so, that's all de reason 'e need."

Okay, well that took an unexpected turn. So lets now travel to the past so that we can see something that makes even remote sense. Jamie when are we going. 
"To 2020."
"Terrific, I always wondered how the populace reacted to t he pandemic."

Two time travel machines later... We have now arrived in the United States during 2020. In case you were wondering where the United States is here is a map: *Insert Map*.

To be more specific, we are currently in the courtroom of Los Angeles. In front of us stand Jules Jackenhopper, who is likely the most immodest judge in the world.

Ohhh shooooot. A bomb just went off and now we must flee.  The explosion has blown up the entire courthouse now, and we don't know were half the camera crew is. Welp, that's fine. Lucky for us, Jamie made sure to bring 79 extra cameras with him; so we can continue this new broadcast.
