Case File: Disturbing the Peace

Police Reports

Case Description: Ptah's Tongue (in the form of the god Thoth) was accused of breaking up the perfectly good silence of the universe before creation began.

Case Status: The court of gods found that no noise ordinance existed before creation existed, so there were no laws that Thoth could break. Ptah and Thoth were both found innocent of any wrongdoing.
