FROM: Dream Police — Suburban Sleep Patrol Officer Zeke Tramlyx
Notice of Citation
Subject (sleeper #6789433218) observed by Suburban Sleep Patrol Officer Zeke Tramlyx driving a black '77 TRANS AM at an appropriate speed. Noting the distinctive car, Officer followed Subject through a tangle of suburban streets which suddenly terminated at a structure that bordered a marshland. The structure was the old house from CONRACK. Subject pulled alongside said house, exited the distinctive TRANS AM, and walked to a waterside platform located at the edge of the property where he sat down to relax on the wooden chair used in MARATHON MAN for interrogation purposes. Officer Tramlyx noted the third strike, exited his vehicle, and approached the Subject who remained in the chair on the dock. Dream Police Officer Tramlyx introduced himself and inquired if Subject was aware of Dream Regulation 045698.056 — restricting the use while in dreamstate of Hollywood-owned intellectual property (IP) to no more than two distinct IP elements per dream cycle unless a specific licensing agreement was in effect. Officer Tramlyx inquired if such a license was in effect and, if so, asked the Subject to present it. Subject indicated he was unaware of the existence of any such regulation and that even dreamland was becoming, quote — A Fucking Fascist State Controlled by Big Business — end quote. Officer Tramlyx explained his coming actions and requested Subject to remain calm while he reached for his notepad to issue a citation.
Subject cited for excessive IP While Dreaming and the fine was paid on site.
