REPORTER

Good evening. It’s the year 1999 and we are here today talking with Emon Stuart, a student at the Kinder Elementary School. Tell us what’s been happening, Emon.

EMON

Well, I don’t know when it started but now it’s completely out of hand. I can’t go anywhere without being touched.

REPORTER

I understand your teachers literally have to place you in a fenced area on the playground.

EMON

Yes, and it’s really hard to play sports that way, let me tell you. I usually end up sitting on the ground, right in the middle, drawing chalk figures on the pavement.

REPORTER

Why in the middle?

EMON

Because some of the kids find sticks and use them to get at me through the fence. I’m safest in the middle.

REPORTER

That’s terrible. Can’t you switch schools?

EMON

This is my fourth one in the last six months.

REPORTER

You mean it’s everywhere?

EMON

Yeah, apparently it is. I guess I’ll just have to wait for this game to die down.

REPORTER

Ladies and gentlemen, you’ve heard it here first on Investigative Retorts. The strange and sad fate of one student, Emon Stuart, the victim of a game called Poke Emon.
