would annihilate the pair for the highest bid in his favor.  Unfortunately
or fortunately Jim lost out to a pair of collectors who had the most
horrified expressions on their faces when Jim Groat made his announcement
and fought valiantly to save poor TR's life.

Fievel looked flat as a pancake...  :)

locked up and Uncle Kage running frantically around the room with the
Keystone Cops chasing him.
