  • "Sure, I've heard of spontaneous combustion...but an entire 3rd grade class?" Detective James Manatee said, looking down as the dozens of pairs of child size sneakers and piles of

  • maroon sweaters. He shook his head in disbelief. ' Describe the scene to me again,' he said. 'what happened after the giant lotus walked into the room?'

  • "Well, it crawled to the center of the room and I felt an overpowering urge to sit on it with legs crossed. That's when this lump grew on my forehead". Manatee inspected the lump

  • He jumped back and realised that his lump was actually a huge piece of apple pie. That's when he started to eat the lump... Or whatever it was.

  • In slow motion, I reached for the lump as he bit down. "Noooooooooo!" I mouthed in a baritone voice. The apple filling exploded and threw his body through the plate glass window.

  • I lunged after him don't caring about cuts the shards of glass made on my body. One glance at him was enough to see that he was dying. "I must tell you this one thing," he croaked.

  • He was turning into a frog right before my eyes. He was a were-frog. He leaped

  • with his suddenly bullish legs. "If were-frogs were were-tadpoles once," Manatee mused. "Were werewolves were-pups?" But where were Waldo and the were-whales? These mysteries were

  • confusing. "So where are the were wolves if they are wearing the fur they were wearing before?"

  • "Well, that's why they're called WERE wolves, because they were wolves. Now they are just a bunch of fur-wearing pansies." And with that, Jimmy took his angora coat and walked away
