As any experienced field operative recognizes, sounds can be key clues in an investigation.

If something makes a sound, you nab it first and ask questions later.

And if it keeps making more sounds after you have pounced, chances are good it wants to tell you everything but is just speaking a different language.

For this, what you need is an expert translator with feathers.

In this, his latest one-avian play, famous and feathery actor Pearl Cutts presents:

“Investigating Things That Go Crunch”

Many of the residents that live along the strip of sidewalk that leads to the theater have started to rethink their choice of habitation.

It can just get so noisy when a new feature is about to open!

Take this play, for example. As far as the eye can see, the fans have lined up, each completely covered in clear crispy crunchy costumes.

And of course the sound just grows louder as the increasingly impatient fans throw all concept of “personal space” to the wind while jockeying for a better position in line.

Finally, some of the fed-up neighbors can be seen to throw on their own (even louder) crunchy, crackly attire and join the line. After all, if you can’t beat ’em….

It was the crunching that gave your position away, you know.

All that crispy crackling – precisely the sort of thing you want to not do when you are out sleuthing in the field.

So now here we are. Lucky for you, .007 is fluent in “crunch.” You can start with your full name, rank and serial number.

You used to be full of crispy, flingable snacks, you say? Well give us their last known location and I’ll put out an APB.

You saw them heading down into some place very dark? Can you be more specific? You heard one of them yell, “Geronimo! Down the hatch we go!” Uh. huh. I see.

Um, “Mom,” do you have anything you want to share with me?

As the mysterious (large, featherless) being known only as “Mom” comes hurrying on stage to confer with her pint-sized and quite perturbed charge, the fans turn to one another, somewhat perplexed.

Their costumes were supposed to have something crispy and flingable inside? Whatever could it be?

It doesn’t take long before arguments break out as to what items would make the crispiest, most flingable costume accessories.

As the noise level escalates, theater staff can be seen turning around one by one and heading straight for the newly installed “earplug station” to prepare to escort the attendees outside.

The End.
