The Strangest Case

FBI agents Dunbar and McKinney stood on the dock near the boat in question. The pizza deliveryman had long since fled his bicycle in terror. After the deliveryman’s outrageous claims, the two X-File cases agents had been dispatched .

Both of them stood watching as Piranha continued diving into the pizza box.

“This has got to be our strangest case ever,” said Dunbar.

“Why?” said McKinney. “Because piranha learned how to order pizza?”


“Because they filled in the order form with no misspells?”


“Then why?”

Dunbar rubbed his chin, “Isn’t it strange that piranha ordered the Vegetarian Special?”

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.

    Either he is right, or those piranha are not as clever as they think – they might have been trying to order the meat lovers special and made a mistake.

    Vegan Piranha or a trick to lure the FBI on board for a more hearty meal. Perhaps piranha is the code word for the drug smuggler they have been after ever since the chief was sent to the fishes.

  3. Is Piranha a person or is piranha a fish?


  4. Dear Eric,

    Mysteries to be pondered. A vegan piranha? Pass the red pepper, please. 😉 I’m a-mused.




  5. I have to ask – did the vegetarian pizza have pineapple on it?

  11. Strange is the right word for anyone ordering vegetarian pizza. What’s the point? (haha) Entertaining story!

    Hey, at least they’re conscientious piranhas. LOL. Too funny. (I feel sorry for the pizza delivery guy who accidentally delivers one with anchovies though…. Might not end well.)
