Judge Twinkle Toes: Ladies and gentlemen, we gather here for the final session of this unprecedented trial. I invite both the defence and the prosecution to present their closing arguments.
[The courtroom is thick with anticipation, and the community gathers to witness the verdict in the trial that has shocked the elfin world,]
Prosecutor Glitter Beard: Your Honour, over the course of this trial, we have laid bare the horrific consequences of renouncing the sacred principles of elfin design. This wasn’t just a renovation; it was a desecration, especially in the kitchen, where the highest crimes against design were committed. This case is one that will haunt the annals of our history, a brutal assault on the aesthetic sensibilities of every elf in this city – nay, in the world. We sought advice from professional kitchen designers near me and you, and even they were horrified by what they saw. Ladies and gentlemen, I rest my case, with a heavy heart, urging you to uphold the sanctity of elfin design principles.
Defense Attorney Sugar Plum: Your Honour, my client dared to dream, dared to be different. It is not a crime to follow one’s heart, to carve out a space that represents one’s individuality. Yes, they sought no help from any kitchen renovations business near Melbourne, but should the spirit of creativity be penalised? We urge the jury to see the courage in the elf’s endeavour.
[Sugar Plum sits, the courtroom resonating with the sound of suppressed whispers as the jury exits for deliberation. The air is thick with anticipation and fear. Finally, after what seems like an eternity, the jury returns.]
Head Juror: Your Honour, while we acknowledge the defendant’s individual efforts, we find that the boundaries of personal creativity were not just crossed but mercilessly shattered. The sacred codes of elfin design, cherished for generations, were flouted with a disrespect that borders on sacrilege. Thus, with heavy hearts, we find the defendant guilty.
[A gasp echoes across the room as the community absorbs the verdict.]
Judge Twinkle Toes: [With a stern yet sorrowful demeanour] The court thanks the jury for their deliberation. It is with a heavy heart that I sentence the defendant to 10,000 years in the ceramic mines, where you will learn the true value of craftsmanship. Court is adjourned.
