Maxwell Smart, secret agent extraordinaire, arrived at Control Headquarters with a look of despair painted across his normally amicable features.
“Mind control, eh? So that’s what those dastardly Khaos proponents of wickedness are now up to. I must talk with the Chief!” Walking through the elaborate security screens, check-points and sliding panels towards the Chief’s office, Max paused to call his heavily pregnant wife, agent 99, on his secret watch-phone.
After what seemed an eternity, she answered in a strange mechanical-sounding voice, “This is Control agent 99, and I report that things are definitely not in control...”
“Honey, it’s Max. Cut the secret agent talk.”
“This does not compute. Things are out of control...”
Max disengaged the phone. Hmmm, looks like even 99 has come under the control of Khaos’s new mind control plan. I wonder who else has succumbed to the fiendish rays of the mind control lazer-beam?
“Chief, we have to talk.” Striding purposefully into the Chief’s office, Max pulled the over-padded armchair closer to the desk.
“I believe that Khaos’s final master plan to seize control of the entire world is now in operation.”
“Yes, Max. I have the intelligence report right here.” Usually nervous, the Chief absent-mindedly toyed with the alarming communiqué lying on his desk. “Max, even the President of the USA has been captured through the mind control device and just moments ago he handed control of the country over into Khaos’s hands. The top Military Commanders also have sworn allegiance to the nation's new Supreme Commander, none other than Boris Offhisrockernoff!”
Max’s jaw dropped in disbelief. “It’s worse than I thought!”
“The game is lost, Max. Khaos has taken complete control. This signals the end of ‘Control.’
“Don’t be so hasty. Chief. I have a plan that will turn Khaos on its head!”
The Chief rolled his eyes. He had seen enough of Max’s disastrous hare-brained ideas.
“Cone of Silence please, Chief.”
With a deep sigh of resignation, the Chief pushed the button concealed under his desk. Immediately the Cone of Silence descended over the two men.
“Chief,” Max shouted from within the dome. The sudden burst of reverberating sound caused the Chief to jerk backwards, cracking his head painfully on the four-inch thick metal casing.
“MAX! How many times have I told you to whisper in the Cone of Silence.”
“Chief, the whole world is in the control of Khaos. Even Control has lost control.”
“Yes, Max...” the Chief moaned, wiping the sweat gathering on his brow. “Can you hurry this up...”
“You can’t rush brilliance, Chief! Here’s the plan: we have to get control of ‘Control,’ and control the controllers.” Max peered across at the Chief with a smug look on his face. “It’s a fool-proof plan! It will work because God is on our side.”
“What are you saying, Max!? The Chief was struggling to compose himself. “Have you lost control of your mind, too?”
“Look, Chief... it makes sense. God is always on the side of the good guys and works against the bad guys, right! He’s in control of everything and everyone.”
The Chief buried his head in his hands.
“See, God even controls the controllers without them even knowing that a higher power is controlling them. He always frustrates their diabolical plans and directs us in ‘Control’ to take control over their despicable plans, so that goodness will ultimately reign!”
Max’s smile stretched from ear to ear. The Chief wept uncontrollably.
“Just wait and see Chief. Everything really is in control!”
