Sergeant Jaworski pointed at the body. “He poked at a hornet’s nest.”

“Dumb bastard,” noted Detective MacLaren.

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.
