Hello Viewers! This is the BUNS, Brian's Undercover News Station, here giving you a secret report from just outside the Blackwell's Island Asylum. Let's take a look inside!
"You are getting too fresh!" (laughter) "What time are you going to supper?" "Why are you asking?"
This is Nellie Bly, the person I am patting on the head. She is "insane", so she has to go to the Blackwell's Island Asylum for "investigation". As you can see, however, these doctors are not very professional, discussing dinner plans in front of their patient. Good thing Ms. Bly is "insane"!
You know, you have asked like six questions to every one of mine, and I am being examined!
Oh my gosh! How terrible!
As you can see, Nellie was horrified by the conditions within the asylum. There were only benches and beds in the asylum, all of them malnutritioned from the very little food, and from what they said, no way to get out.
But now, ten days later, she is out of the asylum. And through her efforts, government officials are beginning to make laws that will promote the conditions within asylums nationwide.
Well, there you have it. In case you couldn't tell, Nellie Bly was never insane. But by pretending to do so, she was able to reveal the horrid conditions in mental asylums. And through her efforts, we can only hope things will get better. Until then, this Brian signing off, and make sure to check your BUNS daily!
