Where the Successful Mystery Writer Gets His Ideas


(ASSOCIATED PRESS NEWSWIRE) This famous mystery writer, who chooses to remain anonymous (“You publish my name and I’ll shoot your ass full of buckshot,” he told our correspondent), was observed this morning researching his latest novel in the swamps near Alvin, Texas. Asked what role alligators would play in the book, he replied, “They’ll be snacking on Thin Mints, of course, while discussing the persecution of Paris Hilton. What else would they be doing?” The interview was cut short when the author produced a sawed-off shotgun and let bam with both barrels. Our reporter is now undergoing emergency buckshot removal at  West Houston Medical Center.

Now, you can tell this photo is doctored because the 'gators have their mouths banded...our hero would look upon that as cheating...(he subdues his pets with massive doses of Mr. Pibb, keeping the good stuff for himself).
