Rip Haywire by Dan Thompson for February 09, 2017
Narrator: As darkness falls over the recently crome-ridden streets of key bay Harbortown, a fowl wind blows. Man: GAAAAH! Rip Haywire: Your jewelry store was robbed last night by the villain known as the Cobra... what did she take? Man: Nothing! I thought she'd switched a diamond necklace with a fake one... but the diamond expert I showed the necklace to... Mr. August... said it was the genuine article! Which was the most confusing thing that happened to me until a giant chicken started asking me questions! Rip Haywire: Where crime lurks, there is no time for explanations! Bantam out!
Wait, Cobra breaks into a jewelry store. But doesn’t steal anything? Unless… who is ‘Mr. August’?
