The Secret Origin of Sunday Brain Bogglers

Last week on Sunday Brain Bogglers, our hero had weird dreams until Max dragged him ashore recovered from death itself. Having seen Heaven and its wonders, Slylock grows contemplative.  Maybe he’ll find the answers in our heartrending finale:

Slylock Fox and the Mystery of the Count’s Code

Slylock Fox and Max Mouse are being followed by a mysterious motorist. Max observed and reported the car's license plate - 8ATW - to the police. But the police department computer doesn't have a record of the plate. Slylock Fox knows why. Do you?

Do you?

“Oh, for the love of– Max, radio Weirdly. Tell him he’s driving backwards again.”

Max did as he was told. The only response was a rattled whisper: “8ATW!” Max looked at Slylock, clearly bewildered.

Slylock shrugged. It was the most normal thing that happened since that fish case.

A witness claims that she saw Wanda Witch steal a copy of Hansel and Gretel from the bookstore across the street and bring it into this bookstore. Wanda says that's insulting and insists she took this book from a shelf in this store. Slylock Fox is going to haul the witch off to the police station. How does Slylock know Wanda stole this book?

Slylock’s world was off since that case. Crazy grandmas, evil plans hinging on exposition, Jay Leno cameos… nothing was right. Slylock was contemplating so hard he didn’t even notice the stout woman dragging him into the bookstore. What was the case again…? Was there a case?

Oh well. “Wanda Witch, you’re under arrest.”

Stewey Stork is suspected of burglarizing hotel rooms. A witness reports she observed him pick the lock on Room 308. Stewey insists he's innocent and claims he lost his key. Slylock Fox says "The Stork's" story doesn't fly. Why not?

Why not?

Having vanquished Wanda, the boys were sent to investigate a series of thefts in the hotel. Slylock caught the thief red-handed (while Max tried to stub his toe). His alibi was bizarre:

“So I’ve been seeing this number around town: 8ATW. I’ve seen it for like 8 weeks. And I’m like, dang! ‘Cause ‘atlu’ is Kapampangan for three, and French is like ‘troi’, and in Klingon it’s ‘wej’. So I go, OK, I guess I gotta rob every room that’s got an 8 and a 3. Then I’m gonna find my destiny.”

Slylock knew something bigger was afoot. He and Max wished the stork luck and left.

Five minutes ago someone flashed laser lights into the homes of the forest animals, which frightened them. Count Weirdly insists it couldn't have been him because he's been shaving for the last ten minutes. Slylock doesn't believe "The Count." Why not?

Why not?

The detectives had a lucky break when Count Weirdly started flashing people in the forest.  It meant an excuse to search. Slylock stormed in and demanded to know the answer to his code.

“Why, Slylock, only you know the answer! I was just reading off your diary!” The sickly madman held up the burnt remains of an old page.

The fox had vague memories of screaming “VIGILANTE!” and setting fire to it.

One of these suspects stole an Egyptian sculpture from the Forest Museum. Slylock Fox is holding a box that contains physical evidence dropped by the thief at the crime scene. What do you think is in the box and which suspect do you believe is guilty?

2/24. The date of the fish case. Something changed 8 weeks ago. Wait, police lineup? Slylock had spaced out again. He scanned the row, stopping at a dreary looking Mutt. “You OK, Chief?”

“Just itchy. I think it’s this awful pink jacket.” (Harry sniffled.) “I guess we’re both Allergic To Wool. How’s that new medication you got 8 weeks ago? I heard the side effects were freaky.”

Oh. Oh.

Harry Ape was swiftly arrested.

      You’re welcome, and thanks for reading! It’s kinda sad that the supply is so limited… I may find story fodder somewhere else, eventually.
