Tom Mabe was going about his usual business when the phone rang. He picked up absentmindedly without checking caller id and that's how it all started.

Tom Mabe: “Hello?”

Telemarketer: “Yes, can I speak with Tom Mabe?”

Tom Mabe: “Who’s calling?”

Telemarketer: “This is Mike. You have been selected to receive a complete digital satellite system for free. With this you’re going to-”

Tom Mabe: “Let me ask you something. Did you know Tom Mabe? Were you a friend of his?”

Mike: “No I’m not. I’m just calling to offer-”

Tom Mabe: “Hol-hol-hold that thought- hold on a second (to others in the room: Hey guys! Get really good pictures of the body… and dust everything for prints.) Mike, you there?”

Mike: “-Yeah…”

Tom Mabe: “Yeah, lemme bring you up to speed. You’ve actually called a murder scene… Mr. Mabe is no longer with us.. I’m Officer Clarke, I’m conducting a homicide investigation. I want to ask you a series of questions… First to all, what was the nature of the business you had with Tom Mabe?”

Mike: “I…I had no business with him. I’m sorry to have bothered-

Tom Mabe: No no no hang on, I’m going to ask you to stay on the phone… this call has already been traced and we may need to come in for further questioning…”

Mike: “You don’t understand, I’m just calling-”

Tom Mabe: “Lemme put it to you this way, Mike. Say I want to mail your [expletive] a letter. What would I have to write on the outside of that envelope to ensure that the mailman will deliver it right to your [expletive] ? Geographically speaking, Mike, where is work?”

Mike: “40 West (beep), Middleton, Colorado.”

Tom Mabe: “Hold on, that’s 40…”

Mike: “Yes sir.”

Tom Mabe: “Michael, hold on one sec, alright?”

Mike: “Yes sir.”

Tom Mabe: “No, you don’t understand. Unless you want to be charged with Obstruction of Justice, it is imperative that you keep your [expletive] on the phone, Mike.”

Mike: “How about you just talk to my supervisor?”

Tom Mabe: “No, we will get to your supervisor in a second. First, gimme your whereabouts…”

Tom Mabe: “(off phone to cops) Get the Middleton Homicide Department on the phone. Yeah, give them this information. Tell them there been a Talk In Connection with a fatal shooting and aggravated robbery.” (on phone) “Mike, how did you know Mr. Mabe again?”

Mike: “Wait, you're calling the Middleton Police Department?! I’m hundreds of miles away! I don’t even know the guy, I’m in Colorado!”

Tom Mabe: “No, no, it’s not that scary, that’s just a formality. Have you been to his place of residence?”

Mike: “No!”

Tom Mabe: “OK, and tell me again what, where were you last night between the hours of 8 and 10?”

Mike: “I’m not feeling really comfortable with any of this…”

Tom: “Have you ever even spoken to Mr. Mabe, Mike?”

Mike: “No, I don’t even know the guy- that’s what I’ve been trying to tell you!”

Mike: “No, I don’t even know the guy- that’s what I’ve been trying to tell you!”

Tom Mabe: “Ok, great, just calm down, hold on, look, just back up… I’ve got just one more question for you, Mike… as you well know, I’m sure, Mr. Mabe was a homosexual. And there is no easy way of asking this… I don’t wanna embarrass you or nothin’… but… were you his gay lover?

Mike: What?! No! What the hell kind of question is that?!

Tom Mabe: Look look, if gay is your way, that’s Ok. I still know there are a lotta you gay people in that closet. Not sayin’ I haven’t thought ’bout it myself… you know? Go out to Las Vegas, or somethin’. Buy a couple o’ drinks… cut lil’ Mexican midget…”

Mike: “This is ridiculous! (hangs up.)”

Tom Mabe: “Hello?”

And we just bet Mike is still waiting for that visit from the Middleton Homicide Department. Or maybe he even quit his job.

Great work, Tom Mabe!
