A bit of excitement to round out the week. A masked individual in a Speedo broke into Pied Piper Pet store and let all the animals free. Now, I would usually applaud the efforts but I don’t think this person had the best interests of the animals in mind and the aftermath is strange and unusual…
First clue – He wore a wrestling mask (and a Speedo) and held several random people down until someone counted to ten and hit the ground next to him. The police, our one officer on duty, was no match for this guy. (Seriously, George, lay off the donuts!)
Second clue – He let all the future pets go: Goldfish, lizards, toads, birds, kittens, puppies, hedgehogs, skunks, snakes. As a rule, goldfish are not known to survive well on their own and don’t even get me started on the reptilian and arachnid components. Can we say never sleeping again?
Third clue – He also “freed” several books from the library, a few slushies from Drac’s Snacks, and several Speedos from Slip and Slide Swimwear.
Fourth clue – He was wearing a mask and a Speedo. Did I mention that? This really should count as clues five and six as well.
Seventh cue – He appeared to be in command of an ostrich army. Witnesses reported the large birds followed him and attacked anyone who got near them.
Final clue this was something other than it seemed was the fact those weird guys in dark suits showed up, a team in Haz-Mat suits, a lion tamer, and several guys with what I can only assume were elephant guns, and then we were told to go home and follow the new curfew until all the animals were recaptured. We’re talking kittens and puppies here, guys…right?
I swear to you, I have heard noises that no animal from a pet store would make, heck, no animal I know of would make.
Not sure what’s up, folks, but I think I need to add this pet store to the list of things to investigate.
When curfew is lifted.
And I know all the snakes and spiders are back where they should be.
