Lowtax: Okay there are waaaaaayyyy too many things going on here.
Zack: The clues are getting smaller. Luckily...
Zack: *Slams microscope on table*
Lowtax: Okay so let's examine this piece by piece. There are empty perfume bottles.
Zack: He's upgraded from candleabra to lantern.
Lowtax: A small satchel to hold 20-sided dice.
Lowtax: A broken locket from some 1920's floozie bathtub gin flapper broad
Zack: I think that's a watch that stopped exactly when the bomb went off.
Lowtax: It stopped at floozie o'clock?
Zack: A copy of Harry Potter that looks like it has HEAVY WATER DAMAGE.
Lowtax: A very tiny key for maybe a medicine cabinent.
Zack: It's a key to a girl's diary.
Zack: A skeleton girl.
Lowtax: A sterling silver crucifix, the real keeper of the collection by far.
Lowtax: An anti-dracula kit.
Lowtax: And... a microscope from 1980
Zack: To examine a tiny note written on a tiny scrap of paper.
Lowtax: And this is obviously overlooking the obligatory skull on a Potter
Lowtax: So what's your theory here, Dr. Zack?
Zack: Yeah. I think it's pretty clear this Bookskull was murdered.
Zack: His body fell off. Or was it...pushed?!?
Lowtax: You're ignoring all the clues!
Lowtax: Or whatever that crap is.
Zack: Enlighten me, please.
Lowtax: Okay, here is my theory:
Lowtax: Some dude was working on the second story of the house when the floor collapsed and a bunch of his shit fell through and landed on a desk. Then his head fell too. BAM.
Zack: Now he's just another statistic.
Zack: Another head on another pile of books in the county morgue.
Lowtax: "Another two-book skull... I've seen this too many times to count" *detective shakes his head*

I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
