We're reading about insanity defenses in criminal law, and there is a concept known as the M'Naghten Rule.

But I keep seeing it as Ph'nglui mglw'nafh C'thulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn, which has some alarming implications.

He was out to kill a peer because he thought the guy was conspiring to kill him--but accidentally shot the guy's private secretary instead.

So he brought an insanity defense and they believed him.

I sort of wish it would have ended with the Elder Gods fighting the shoggoth in an epic war that would lead to the destruction of the universe, but then maybe that's just me. It would make for better case law.
