You guys! Today, I have for you no ordinary case. This is a case of drama, a case of danger, a case of Legos. Actually, it was a box of legos. DadFOD built it into a DeLorean but then, on January 1, 2015, the very day we entered the year of Back to the Future Part II, this happened:
The scene of the crash. Exhibit 1: the flipped DeLorean.
Was it a sign? I leapt into action and got my hat. This was about to become
A CREPES CASE.
It’s business time.
Picture it: Sicily, 1947. Marty McFly was there, on the shores at the toe of the boot when suddenly, his DeLorean started hurtling toward the future, towards 2015, and he couldn’t stop it.
“Oh, Sh*t.” – Marty McFly.
In a flash of light, Marty appeared on top of the fridge in the little apartment in Chicago. No sooner had he landed in his time machine when, seemingly from nowhere, a beast from amongst the local fauna arrived and batted his time machine down to the floor!
The shocked DadFOD, unwilling victim of a heinous crime.
Pieces scattered everywhere. I laid out the grid and exhibit notes and got to work.
Snuffing for clues. I located a bolt from the flux capacitor. It was so small, I almost inhaled it.
THE SUSPECTS: Based on the trajectory of the fall and the location of the car, I narrowed down my suspects list. Doodle wasn’t home, so she was off the list. It fell from the top of the fridge, which nixed me since I can’t get up that high. Niles isn’t interested in Legos, which left me three suspects.
Louie, aka “The Lou-ser.”
Sprinkle, a known jumper with a taste for smashing stuff.
Peabody, the cat with a penchant for heights.
I knocked Louie off the list. He’s got the vertical skills of a skunk stuck in super glue.
And then, suddenly, it came to me. Suspects always return to the scene of the crime! I reviewed my evidence, and I found this:
The Verdict: SPRINKLE! Also, I’m pretty sure Peabody was an accomplice. I have no particular evidence for that, but I’d love to see her get in trouble. Anyway, I have reported my findings to the authorities.
