The Wheelchair Samurai

The story of an evil wheelchair bound samurai in feudal Japan.

[The wheelchair samurai, S, enters a village populated with anonymous villagers, V]

S: Simple peasants! Gather around to hear the demands of your new lord! The feared demon-samurai Alkanphel!

V: Um, sorry, but, uh…

V: You’re not very frightening.

[S slowly and arduously wheels himself in between his two naysayer in his rickety old chair, and punches them both in the stomach]

S: Does anyone doubt my power?

V: We surrender, what are your demands?

S: I require a tithe at every harvest. Now take me to your fields.

[While following behind the villagers, slowly, S falls over on his side]

S: Someone get me back up!

V: Won’t you just hurt us if we get close to you?

S: I swear on Bushido, the samurai honor code, that no harm will come to the one who helps me.

[A man goes over to S, and helps him back up. S proceeds to punch him in the face]

V: You said you wouldn’t hit him! You swore on Bushido!

S: Handicapped samurais have a way of getting around such things.

V: I’d be surprised you could get around anything.

[All the villagers laugh. S slowly wheels himself up to the one who made the joke, and stabs him in the stomach]

S: I will not be mocked by the likes of you. You, who are nothing but the Japanese equivalency of white trash!

V: Uh, excuse me, but this is feudal Japan, the term white trash hasn’t been conceived of yet. It won’t be for centuries.

S: This man professes knowledge of the future! He is not doubt a witch, in service to demons. He has cursed your lands! How was your harvest last year.

V: Plentiful, we even sold our surplus to neighboring villages.

S: How’s it looking this year?

V: Even better.

S: Have you ever had a bad harvest?

V: Well, uh. Probably…

S: It is because of him, the demon witch!

[The villagers, roused by S’s claim, maul and kill the supposed witch. The journey to the fields continue]

V: Excuse me, but, that contraption that you move around in?

S: My wheelchair?

V: Yeah, about that. Wheelchairs won’t be invented for centuries, how do you have one?

S: Aha, another demon worshipper among you reveals himself! You know what you have to do to protect your village!

[Again, the villagers maul their supposed traitor. Later the villagers come a section of their village raise about 7 inches]

S: I cannot get up their, assist me, my servants!

V: Actually we were leading you here so that we could escape you. We reasoned you couldn’t get up here, now we’ll just wait until you get bored and move on.

S: Impudent dogs! I demand you build a wheelchair ramp. Lest you be in direct violation with disabled persons rights legislation!

V: Disabled person rights legislation? Nothing like that will be enacted until well into the future.

[The man looks around himself and sees all the villagers looking at him]

V: Oh, hell.

Very classy. Anonymous poor ratings on three of my skits. None of which provide any constructive criticism. Bravo.

Very funny. One minor complaint though, "Alkanphel" isn't remotely Japanese. Still, really funny.
