Observe & Absolve

Estimated reading time โ€” < 1 minute

There is an abandoned mental hospital at the top of a hill in Worcester, Massachusetts. Once every 5 years an old rusty box spring appears within the courtyard of the hospital. If you can sneak inside and sleep through the night on the bed, in the morning a man with a shirt that reads “Observe and absolve” will take out his wallet and give you a picture. This picture will show you how you will die. If the picture is of the man standing before you, running won’t help.

    Madara-Let’s see if the legend’s true. *sleeps in bed*
    *Wakes up* *sees the man*
    Madara-…A picture of you?…Yeah, TEN-TAILS, COME HERE, I HAVE A TREAT FOR YOU!


  2. Well I’d like to welcome all of you to sleep in the bed.But before you go to sleep pull down your pants, and prepare your anus.m

  3. id jump up and hug him and say “YOUR A WIZARD HARRY” and run like a bat out of hell dragging the box spring with me

  4. My face shivered when I read this…

    I’m putting these on all posts i read:


  5. “Once every 5 years an old rusty box spring appears within the courtyard of the hospital.”

    What does that have to do with anything?
    It doesnt even mention a box.

  6. …the first line involved the words ‘abandoned’ ‘mental’ and ‘hospital’
    …no thanx
    btw, if the guy is mortal or whatever wouldn’t he die after a certain number of years? if so, does sum1 take his place?…every 5 years?…what if kno one does it?…he must get pretty lonely =\

  7. Good stuff.

    But I have a suggestion. Would have been even better if ‘Observe and absolve’ was not written on his shirt, but on an envelope, which contained the photograph. Written in lower-case, in red marker pen.

  8. I wonder why it’s the shirt that reads “observe and absolve”. Seems a little bit weird to me. Mr. Welldone – could this possibly be the bit that was tampered with?

  9. well, this one seems easy, as the guy could easily take hundreds of photos of himself and carry a machete. or, u know, a gun…or something. self-fulfilling prophecy FTW
