Bob's Adventure through Time Finally completing work on his marvelous TIME MACHINE, Bob readies himself for his urgent mission. Bob: Hmm... How many pairs of underwear? And he catapults back to the year... 1789! ZAP Bob: Now to find JAMES MADISON! Mr. Madison, I must speak to you at once! Madison: What strange garb, young man! DO come in... Bob: Mr. Madison, I am from the 21st century! Madison: Impossible! Bob: I thought you might not believe me, so I brought PROOF! Try this! Madison: Fizzy... Sweet... Refreshing! Truly the beverage of an idyllic future! Bob urgently explains to Madison the purpose of his incredible journey. Bob: ...Yes, and that's why it's called CABLE tv! Madison: Ah, I see! but explain again this "Pay-per-view..." Bob: So, we're in agreement, Mr. Madison? Madison: Oh, you've convinced me! I shall write up a "Bill of Rights," including a "Freedom of Speech," and propose it on the morrow! And so Bob returns to the 21st century, having ensured his and every American's ability to watch scrambled porn at any time of the day! BOB: Time traveler, basic cable subscriber, patriot!!
