->''"Another unfortunate casualty to tide of time: Insane Asylums. I lament their loss, not only as brokerage houses for the bredth and depth of human psychosis, but also I shall mourn the disappearance of the peculiar environment present ''only'' in an insane asylum: that palpable atmosphere of blistered brains and churning bowels, the odiferous deluge of freely flowing bodily humors, that gently rolling cacophony of distant sobs and screams, the muttered cursing of perceived enemies and the blissful gurgling of the lobotomized. Like a new born babe discovering the sky."''

->''Away in a madhouse, confined to my bed\\
From visions and nightmares that filled me with dread\\
The doctor has sweetly inserted a probe\\
To sever completely my pre-frontal lobe!\\
Electroshock therapy, mind-numbing pills\\
They change my behavior to cure all my ills\\
I love the asylum, My own padded cell\\
I'll stay here forever for [[CosmicHorrorStory outside is hell!]]''

->'''David:''' Arkham Asylum, which is apparently on top of a straight-up mesa with sheer cliff faces.\\
'''Chris''': It looks so much like ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' that I expected to see a dude in a loincloth whipping Medusa Heads.\\
'''David:''' There, we see Freeze being brought in, and hes actually in a locked fridge with his head through the freezer door. It even has the hinges the door used to be on.\\
'''Chris''': Arkham Asylum in a nutshell. No wonder they cant keep anyone locked up when this is the best specialized equipment that they can afford.
