explode < Lat. explodere meaning "to drive out by clapping."
What an odd form of exile!
(Medieval court, rural Europe. JUDGE, cloaked in black robes stands to deliver his verdict; a rather meek and filthy BEGGAR hunches before him obediently,)
JUDGE: Do you have anything to say for yourself, sir?
BEGGAR: Please Your...
JUDGE: Silence! (pause) Well then, due to the heinousness of your crime, the Court hereby and forthwith sentences you to... explodere!
BEGGAR: No Your Honor, Please not that!
JUDGE: (forcefully) Exlodere! Bring in the Band of Clappers!
(Enter several men and women, all expressionless, clapping, who walk up to the BEGGAR, forcing him from the courtroom and out into the street.)
