There is a short story i read years ago about a nurse or orderly at an asylum getting locked in overnight and tickled to insanity by the inmates. I think it mentioned 1000 maniacs.
I can't remember where i saw it, if it was on tickletheater, a yahoo group or from one of the tales from the asylum issues. I thought it was based on this Mandell pic, but that was for the story Asylum 7 and that wasn't it.
Also it was very short so it might not have been from there published alone in one of those issues, so i'm wondering if it was part of a bigger story.
I can't find it on the forum and google doesn't bring up anything, but does it sound familiar to anyone else?
