FCSI

The Crime: Unauthorized taking and dispersing of used frying oil after a wing feast.


AHA! The thief left trace evidence behind.
The game's afoot Watson!
(You love it when I call you Watson, don't you?)

Hmmm ...

These prints are pretty clear, but we should follow procedure.
Watson, hand me the fingerprint powder.

Excellent!
Although I prefer Hersheys fingerprint powder from the great state of Pennsylvania.

A light dusting will do, Watson.
What? You forgot your fingerprint brush.
You'll have to get low and puff the powder away.
Pretend it's your birthday and you have a wee tiny cake with those irritating restarting birthday candles atop it.
Puff, Watson, Puff!

Ah well, not the greatest, but it will have to do.
Now, Watson , based on the evidence at hand, ...
... who was the culprit?

Looks like a pretty big raccoony to me!! and you know, they wear those little black masks so they're always ready for mischief. :)
Oh, and BIG congrats to Emma! It seems like just yesterday that she was moving away to college...

Haha...that was fun! Do another one, do another one!!! (Sorry, I'm on day 7 of a 10 day work "week" and I have done 16 presentations/hikes for groups ranging from kindergarten to adult. I'm just a little punchy.)

My deduction, Holmes, would be Thievious Raccoonous!

Ahhhh...Watson probably drinks tea...so no great loss of chocolate.

A raccoon? They are very curious animals.

Hi FC,

A description of the little thief has gone out and an APB issued. Your fingerprints will help put him away. Video was taken at his latest heist:

Good luck,

i am shocked, absolutely shocked, that you deviated from standard procedure and did not provide a measurement photo. and your usual substitute -- look, here's my thumb by comparison! -- does not work when your hand is all curled up and you've put fingerprint powder all over the crime scene evidence. will let that go this time, sherlock. it sure does look like a racoon.

who wouda thunk it?? said...

if a raccoon farts in the woods ,does it mean he is a criminal?? (maybe this time it does!)

Thanks Sherlocks!
If we catch this perp, we'll send him to the Procyonidae Penal Colony.

Those rascally racoons can wreak such havoc.

P.S. They will probably thank you with another visit since you made dessert for them.

Ack! You are right! I just made chocolate fudge.
