1) what are you drinking? I'd like to have some.
2) what color is the sky in your world?
3) have you spoken to Elvis lately?

I pull out my X52 Ultra Magnum Evaporator, conveniently hidden in my wedding ring, and quickly do away with the bad guys. Then I'd finish my dinner.

Stranger things have happened. Could be that the rifle was in a very remote part of the park, off the beaten path. After all, it took 2000 years for someone to stumble upon the Dead Sea Scrolls.
