Night of the Living Sunday Brain Bogglers

Last time on Sunday Brain Bogglers, Slylock did what the law refused to, and drowned as a dramatic vigilante. But it seems fate has bigger plans with our hero…

I’ve got an odd number of Brain Bogglers left, so we get five unrelated comics for this week’s exciting episode:

Slylock Fox and the Case of the Slippery Shrew

Dreams fool some of us into thinking they are real-life experiences. But even in his sleep, Slylock Fox's keen sense of observation allows him to realize what is not real. What evidence leads Slylock to conclude this lunar adventure is just a dream?

What evidence leads Slylock to conclude this lunar adventure is just a dream?

Slylock found himself somewhere high above the earth. Somewhere full of soft, fluffy clouds. Somewhere where running over Max was kosher. Heaven?

Suddenly, a fish appeared with the warped face of Slylock’s father. He recited poetry and classic Mary Worth strips, and Slylock knew life was not done with him.

Doggy Dude says Shady Shrew stole something from his speedboat. Shady insists that he's innocent and explains he is about to set sail with only the items he needs to enjoy himself out on the bay. Slylock suspects Shady is lying. Why?

Why?

Feelings of weight, dampness, and general being rushed back to Slylock. He awoke to find himself at the docks where he drowned. Max was also soaked, occupied with his bizarre war against sea creatures. A dog with some kind of dreadful toupee tried to pull Slylock into a case, but he politely explained he’d just come back from the dead.

“You too?” said Shady. “Didja see that fish?”

Slylock nodded. “Yes, and I’ve been mulling over his cryptic words. I think–” He went on all day. When he looked up, Shady was gone.

Harry Ape pulled a midnight bank robbery. A witness claims she saw him drive his getaway car into this auto dealership. When Slylock Fox arrived, he ran to "The Ape's" car before the witness had a chance to point it out. How did Slylock know which car Harry Ape was hiding in?

No clues. No evidence. Slylock didn’t even know what the case was. He turned to his rogues gallery, hoping to extract Shady’s secrets. One jerk was all it took to make Harry crack.

“All right, all right! Last week, I saw Shady, he was smuggling paintings. Weird paintings. Like one showed a phedina borbonica, and it was Pemba Island, but it wasn’t mating season!”

Slylock was taken aback. Such atrocities could only be performed by Koppy Kat!

Slylock Fox claims this painting is the work of notorious art forger Koppy Kat. Slylock reminded everyone of Koppy's habit of including a visual joke in his forgeries. Do you see the visual joke?

Do you see the visual joke?

“EUREKA!” Slylock stood up. The whole room went silent as the detective gave his speech: “This painting depicts a mushroom in the desert. Why? Mushrooms are something you eat. People eat at picnics, often on beached. Ergo, Shady Shrew is at the beach!”

The auctioneer blinked. “Thank you, Mr. Fox.”

Last night's storm exposed a buried treasure chest. Earl Elephant says the treasure belongs to him because he found it first. But Shady Shrew claims he found it first. Why does Slylock Fox believe Earl?

Why does Slylock Fox believe Earl?

The duo raced out in the hot sun to find Shady making off with dazzling treasure. “Shady, wait!” Slylock called.

Slylock skidded to a halt, puffing and panting. “What did you steal from Doggy Dude? I wasn’t listening.”

“Oh, just some water skis. They’re over there.” “Thanks.”

Slylock and Max high-fived as they ran to the skis. The sounds of punching, kicking, and elephant trumpets faded behind them. Nothing like solving a case.

Next week: I’ve only got 5 Brain Bogglers left. Join me for a thrilling finale about love, loss, and bowler caps reflecting the dark side within us!

Not to mention fanservice for the Weirdly lovers.

    Only five more? Noooooo!

    But I love Slylock’s application of Insane Troll Logic in the fourth one.
