Sunday Brain Bogglers

I’ve decided to try something new here at TSF. Every Sunday I’m going to highlight puzzles from the late Slylockfox.com, in addition to my normal posts. It’s time for Sunday Brain Bogglers! Many thanks to Anon for the suggestion.

This week: Slylock Fox and the Case of the Gruesome Garbage

“An inconsiderate slob dumped trash on Rachel Rabbit’s lawn. One of these two suspects is guilty. Slylock Fox found evidence that may identify the loathsome litterbug.”

“Good lord, Max! This wasn’t an accident– this fish was murdered!

“Yeah, that’s nice, Sly. Help me figure out whose garbage this is.”

How could Max dismiss such a grisly case? He tried to tell the the Chief, but it was like the words bounced off of him. He and the bull were sharing a moment.

A painting by a world-renowned artist was stolen from the Forest Museum. The missing masterpiece is now in Kopy Kat’s studio. The feline forger has already painted a copy of the artwork.

The first suspect would have to be the carnivorous Koppy Kat. Something weighed on Slylock’s mind as he walked through that door. Oh wait, it was Max. Kid needs a diet.

“But monsieur Fox,” said the feline, “I have been at home, forging my paintings! Wait, I didn’t mean–” His accent slipped. Someone should tell him “Koppy” doesn’t even sound French.

That was a quick arrest.

The Christmas tree salesperson had accused Shady Shrew of stealing a tree from his lot. Shady insists that he chopped his tree down legally in the forest..

“Well, of course he’s lying,” Slylock thought to himself. “That cut is far too clean to have been chopped with an axe! I really should arrest him.”

“Of course, that might be awkward, since I’m doing the same thing.”

Slylock Fox and Max Mouse have been lost at sea for days. When Max awoke this morning, he spotted land. The happy mouse thought that they had reached the east coast of the United States. But Slylock Fox disagrees.

The world swayed back and forth. The sun was bathed in bubblegum, and Slylock was haunted by fish. Reminders of the case he never solved. Was this real? Or was he drugged?

He saw two things before drifting off into oblivion: a maniacal grin on the face of his sidekick, and a fresh skeleton. No! Must stay awake

Next week: That whole fish thing is never mentioned again

    Is that a lovingly rendered likeness of Cassandra in Kopy’s studio? I’d like to see them as a team one of these days.

    Oh, and the owl DOES have a cutesy alliterative name. It’s…um…(something that starts with an O…I could sure go for some popcorn right now…ah of course!) ORVILLE Owl!

    Orville was quite happy to pose nude for the original.

      I noticed that myself! I think I giggled like a schoolgirl upon seeing it, because I’ve always wanted to see those two together.

      And if I was as sexy as Orville, I’d be doing nudes all the time.
