Thursday Thriller: Pearl Cutts in “Oh So Crispy”

All the covert ops training in the world can’t prepare you for the heart-racing, blood-pumping adrenaline rush of working a real live case.

Perhaps this explains the ongoing popularity of movies and plays about famous “black ops” agents cracking impossible cases!

After all, most beings just don’t have the nerves of steel and razor-sharp instincts required to do top secret work – but they can still enjoy the vicarious thrill of watching an agent “do their thing!”

In rare instances (but certainly not in the case of famous and feathery actor Pearl Cutts, who is persistently rumored to be one and the same with the super-stealthy pint-sized secret agent .007) art even imitates life rather than life imitating art!

Love & Feathers is proud to present the world-famous and feathery actor Pearl Cutts in his latest one-avian play:

“Oh So Crispy”

As theatergoers arrive – way too early as usual – to begin queueing up for prime seats, they notice the odd sensation of….crunching….as they walk through the theater lobby.

A quick glance down reveals a floor scattered with light brown beings, none of whom seem inconvenienced in the slightest by being walked on! 

Bemused ticket holders get so busy pondering this they forget to jostle and shove for the best seats like they usually do, which makes the theater ushers very very happy.

Hmmm. There are quite a lot of you in here – what are you each called?
You are all in the “crispy witness protection program?” Because you are very crispy and crunchy and in demand? Ahhhh….okay then. You can just whisper your names to me.
Her? Oh don’t worry about her. That’s just “Mom,” my large featherless assistant.
Yes, I promise you she is not a security threat. Here, I will tell her to back up some more by using my trademarked “fierceness.”
See? I told you – nothing to worry about there. Now what were you saying about being so crispy and crunchy?
Well if you are really as crispy and crunchy as you say, it may not be sufficient to just put you in the “crispy witness protection program,” you know. What other level of security can I offer? Well, I can put you in a very quiet, dark, warm place where no one will ever find you – you will be totally safe there, I promise.

The dialogue is abruptly replaced by the distinct sounds of….crunching and munching….as one after another, the small brown beings are transported to the quiet, dark, warm, safe place by their courageous rescuer. 

The End.
