Let’s hope he doesn’t get assigned to ay of these open files:
A crime at a basketball game: The Basket Case
The theft of some eyeglasses: The Spectacle Case
An investigation at an insane asylum: The Mental Case
A crime that’s solved too quickly: The Brief Case (alternately, this could be the theft of a man’s underwear)
Shall I go on?
A crime involving a guillotine: The Head Case, perhaps?
He’s just miffed they pulled him off of Project Gunrunner.
The murder of a federal agent: The Suit Case…
There’s that one about paradoxes – the open and shut case
There is the cashews stolen from the general’s desk- the nut case.
The ones that sound a bit shaggy – Case E, Case Um
The case of the busted building. WHO WAS THE CULPRIT???!!! Take a guess…
Yeah, well. They need the guns. This is war. They can’t ver well get to them if you’re sitting on the bloody gun case, you idiot!
Is that blood on his mouth?
