The New Adventures of Hobo McGillicutty and Time Traveler Jones
There is a mystery down in old Brazil, that requires the services of a strange pair of detectives. The detectives are time-traveler, "Hobo McGillicutty" (Tom) and homeless man, "Time Traveler Jones" (Brian).
In a Brazilian prison there are some prisoners escaping and none of the prison officials know how. They have ruled out the use of power tools, but it appears that they were somehow getting a hold of some basic home improvement tools like saws and drills. The tools were smuggled into the prison, however they weren't smuggled "inside" anything and they didn't come in through the front door. Now I know what you're thinking, but they did NOT train birds to drop the tools into the prison.
Back in reality there lived a cat at this Brazilian prison that was friendly toward the inmates and routinely went between the prison and the homes of the families of the inmates. Early on New Years Eve, the cat was caught by guards trying to get back into the prison with all sorts of tools and gadgets strapped to its body.
Hobo and Time Traveler, "Time Traveler" and "Hobo" Are Back on the Case
Citizens who park within a mile the police department in Hollywood, Florida are unable to use the keyless entry system for their cars. Immediately the guys think that there is some piece of equipment inside the police department that is blocking or disrupting the signal. According to reports, we can rule out the possibility of wizards, warlocks, Gandalfs, and Sasquatches being the cause of this particular mystery. Hobo and Time Traveler were about to give up, when at the last minute, Hobo came up with the idea that maybe there was a pirate radio station. This was in fact the case. Authorities found out that there was a pirate radio station broadcasting from the roof of a bank a block from the police station.
Floridians Be Murderin' Snakes!
