But the grocery clerk saw the pesky ‘coons and rushed through the doors with his broom, nearly tripping on Mr. Tomms, the MYSTERY writer who lived in the flat above the store.

Laut fluchend gestikulierte dieser mit den Armen. “Passen sie doch auf!” schrie er und liess beinahe den Karton mit Reagenzgläsern fallen, welche er für sein neuestes Experiment gekauft hatte.

“Can somebody please turn on the English subtitles?” asked walter, “I can’t understand German.”
“Press menu on the DVD remote.”
“I can’t see the stupid remote buttons in the dark, Susie—ergh, this is frustrating! Somebody turn the lights on!”
“That means I have to get up. You do it, Walter, you’re standing up already!” Robert did not want to move from his favorite chair.

“Thats it! It’s strike-time, I am SICK and TIRED of WAITING on you PATHETIC HUMANS to get this crap right!!!” Bobby Coon is short tempered and very manipulative and convincing in the N.U.F.R.L. (National Union for Racoon Laborers).

In fact, turns out the FBI agent was in charge of this year’s “snow angels for the children” charity event. He was coming to make sure the fake snow was piled nice and high for the event.

Of course, the coon didn’t realize this at the time he pulled the trigger. Just the sight of the agent made him nervous that he might find out the truth that he’s been hiding so long about…

…frustrated by Smith’s amazing speed, the coon shot again and again and again until he emptied the 30 round magazine of his M-16 to no success. He was about to give up when a thought came to him. The coon suddenly did something that even Agent Smith couldn’t anticipate. He…

leaped across the room and wrapped his paws around the startled agents legs, tripping him as they fell toward..
