"I'm sorry, what
did you say?" the Mayor asks with a dead calm, turning slowly to
stare at you, his piercing gaze focused through the monocle like a ray
of direct sunlight, and you, my friend, are the ant, being fried to a

"Well, all I said was that Boggle was a far superior game to
Monopoly," you reply, beads of sweat forming on your brow.

you. "Then I'm afraid you're under arrest. You see, these are

the hell did you THINK was gonna happen?
