Crime Stoppers Need Your Help ;-o
Clancy here. Sergeant Clancy.
Chief Investigator of Interpol's Crimes in Nursery Rhymes Division (CNRD).
It is the mission of CNRD to relentlessly pursue and prosecute the perpetrators of crimes against nursery rhyme characters.
Crimes in Nursery Rhymes you say?
You may not be aware of the multitude of crimes committed by and against nursery rhyme characters due to the publishing industries insistence on putting out only the "sanitized" versions of the truths in an effort to "protect" our children.
But the crimes are real, and so are the people who prosecute them.
Still need proof? Allow me to provide a few examples of our successful prosecutions.

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear
He's actually my first cousin on my mother's side.
You can see the family resemblance
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy was he?
It seems that Fuzzy had been going to see Dr. Do-Evil after answering and email ad for ....... well let's just say it had something to do with Mrs. Wuzzy.
Turns out one on the side effects was massive hair loss.
The malpractice suit was settled out of court for a substantial sum of money in exchange for criminal charges being dropped.
So Fuzzy contacted Dr. Do-Good (Do-Evils twin bear) to jointly develop a new hair tonic.
Fuzzy is currently the Spokes-bear for
Hair Restoration Tonic for Bears.
Here are the co-founders on vacation in Aruba following their successful IPO.
But I digress. I'm here today with a public plea.
