This dream unfolded as an episode of 30 Rock. I shall try to capture it for you.
INT. WRITER’S ROOM – DAY AFTER SHOW
Last night’s skit about President Obama was a success. All the trades are talking about it.
They’re not speaking positively about it Liz. You said he was a member of the Illuminati.
We were poking fun at the fact that every president is in the Illuminati. We don’t want to appear left-winged all the time. Besides, the Illuminati doesn’t even exist. I don’t even know what they’re all about.
(running into room, disguised not necessarily as a ninja)Did you hear? An eight year-old blogger was assassinated uptown because he said he didn’t like the president’s new dog.
That’s ridiculous, Tracey. Obama would never do that… would… he…
INT. JACK’S OFFICE
Tracey and Liz visit Jack to discuss the possibility of danger.
The both of you don’t really believe the conspiracy theory that the Illuminati exists, do you? Let alone the possibility that our latest president could be a part of that organization? And that he would be willing to assassinate bloggers?
Eight year-old bloggers.
Tell you what. To appease you both and to provide a sense of safety, why don’t we get that makeup artist in here…
The one that turned Tracey into Robery Downey, Jr?
Yes, that one. He–
Jack’s office window suddenly shatters and Tracey and Liz flee, screaming. Jack picks up a found golf ball.
Moonves, isn’t it a bit early for building tee off?
INT. TOOFER’S APARTMENT
Wow, Toofer… this is a really nice place for the salary we’re paying you.
It didn’t come equipped with windows. That’s how I can afford it on my salary. And your welcome, for letting you stay here.
(eating food out of Toofer’s fridge) Thank you.
INT. JACK’S OFFICE
Liz and Tracey try various hiding places while Jack talks to them.
A week has passed, and no serious threats have been made against your lives. Can you finally admit that there is no Illuminati?
Liz and Tracey finally stand up and face him.
Yes. Yes, we can.
(Anonymous voice from speaker phone) That’s sufficient.
You know Jack, Liz and I have learned a lot from this experience. Like not to jump to conclusions when eight year-old bloggers get assassinated. And how to make pumpkin pies. Toofer is a great chef and teacher.
