Undercover

How long have we been waiting for this, Curtis?”

Oh, I don’t know, Rico. A good few years, I reckon.”

Just an undercover job, a chance to prove that we were just as good as the rest. That’s all I wanted, you know. Twenty years on the force, you’d think they’d at least give me a go.”

Yep, Rico. You’ve been patient enough, I reckon. I’ve only been waiting, like, five years. Don’t know why she had to be the one to offer us the chance though. Should we have smelled a rat?”

Nah! I mean she turned up suddenly but there was nothing suspicious about her, not really. If you over-looked her long and crooked nose, and that wart she tried so hard to cover up with the make-up, you’d have never have suspected her of being a witch. Don’t blame yourself, Curtis.”

It wouldn’t have been so bad if she’d lived to change us back. Not really. I could have tolerated looking like this for a while, but when she was shot in front of us, that kind of sealed our fate. Who’s going to change us back now.”

"Hell, Curtis, I just remembered what today is. Your 25th anniversary! A big party planned for Marge, wasn’t there?”

Somehow, I think she’s gonna be after a divorce, Curtis. I can’t see Marge being happily married to a pink and white striped dog, can you? No, I’m going to be looking at maintenance payments for the rest of my life and how am I gonna pay them?”

Don’t despair, Rico. There’s supposed to be a lot of openings for good guard dogs these days.”

Oh, yeah! We look really fierce and scary!”

Actually, Rico, I think we have more immediate worries. Look! We’ve been spotted by those kids and they’re heading our way!”

There’s only one thing we can do, Curtis. Head for those tables and get under cover!”
