Fun With NFL Replacement Officials

It's an NFL game, and it doesn't matter who's playing. Suddenly, a yellow flag flies and a whistle blows. A penalty! Or is it? The strike-breaking replacement referee walks to the center of the field and speaks into his microphone for the benefit of the crowd and the audience at home.

"There is no foul. I--I don't know why I'm here. Who are all of you people?! Timeout on the field! The line judge is having a nervous breakdown. Is there a licensed psychotherapist in the stadium?"

Admittedly, this would make up for the abysmal quality of officiating we're going to get from these replacements.
