Sunday Brain Bogglers Shall Rise Again!

Our heroes are still riding high after their victory last week. Weirdly’s been put away, plots have been exposited, and the side of justice appears infallible. Will Slylock and Max keep their streak– or will they meet their match in this week’s Sunday Brain Bogglers?

This week: Slylock Fox and the Hunt for the Decrepit Death

Granny Squirrel says that Shady Shrew drove his truck through a puddle and deliberately splashed her during yesterday's rain storm. Shady insists he's innocent and claims he hasn't driven since he went sunbathing two days ago. But when Shady started his truck, Slylock Fox knew that "The Shrew" was lying.What did Slylock Fox observe?

Granny Squirrel says that Shady Shrew drove his truck through a puddle and deliberately splashed her during yesterday’s rain storm. Shady insists he’s innocent and claims he hasn’t driven since he went sunbathing two days ago. But when Shady started his truck, Slylock Fox knew that “The Shrew” was lying.
What did Slylock Fox observe?

Slylock’s face fell when they reached the source of the distress signal. Granny Squirrel. By the time he arrived, bones were already scattered haphazardly around the landscape. The savage senior was racing what was left of Shady to his car. And she was winning.

“You provoked Granny Squirrel?!” Just saying the name sent a wicked chill down Slylock’s spine.

“I didn’t do nothing,” Shady gasped, falling into Slylock’s arms. “I didn’t do…”

Silence. Slylock had some very mixed feelings about this. Was it OK to just drop him? He’d never done this before, you know.

A hijacker hopped on this parked bus in New York City.If he drives away in the direction the bus is facing, which way will Slylock Fox say the bus is traveling?

“Ah’m late fer m’ bridge game.” Her evil incantations interrupted Slylock’s thoughts. A wave of her purse and a bloodcurdling scream, and the bus was hers.

Max was distracted and Slylock couldn’t take her on his own. He phoned the police only to find that they had their own Granny issues. She’d been tying up their hotlines day and night, talking about knitting and kittens. She would often hiss a raspy reminder:

“I’m not home. Don’t look for me.

Chief Mutt received a tip that an escaped criminal was hiding out in Granny Squirrel's house while she is on vacation. After finding no trace of the criminal, Chief Mutt suspects the tip was false! But Slylock Fox sees evidence that suggests someone was in the house recently.What does the sly scarlet sleuth see?

What does the sly scarlet sleuth see?

Her home was as terrible as you could imagine: swarming with dark, soulless creatures, watching. Watching and biting noses. Slylock took one look and could feel her evil presence.

“Let us in, Chief. We’ve come to arrest this woman for assault.”

Max huddled close behind Slylock. “Sly, wasn’t it a murder?” he whispered.

“He’ll be back next week,” said Slylock, his voice cold and firm, “but this week the wicked must be punished.”

Count Weirdly locked Slylock Fox and Max Mouse in his castle's dungeon. Then Weirdly left to attend a week-long "Mean and Nasty Society" convention. On the second day, Slylock heard a search plane in the distance.How did the "Scarlet Sleuth" signal the far-off plane??

Two days. Two days and they couldn’t figure out how to get out of Granny’s stupid attic. Lord knows how long her grandson had been there. How did she even get custody?

The gruel was going fast, but Slylock hated to eat rats right in front of Max. Oh, well. He liked to blind airplane pilots with the mirror. It kept his mind off his troubles.

One day, Squirrel. Evil would never win again.

Next week: Immortality, celebrity cameos, and Max puts on a freaking shirt

      I don’t know if you mean best Brain Bogglers as drawn by Bob Weber Jr. or as distorted by myself. 😄 Either way, the man must have a violent and sick mind to design a character like Granny Squirrel.
