Waterbank News’ key photographer was kidnapped yesterday, making the paper photoless for the time being.
“I sent him out to take some pictures of wild flowers in the East River Mountains,” said the Editor in Chief of Waterbank News, “and it’s been five days…”
If anyone has seen the photographer, a svelte woman in her 40s wearing a feather boa, please contact the authorities. We would show you a picture, but, ya know, no photographer.
An epidemic of stolen tires, hubcaps, and lug nuts has stricken urban areas, according to the Sheriff’s Department.
“This is the first real test of our new open source police model,” said the local Sheriff in East River. “Now that each area has what they need, we’ll see if Sheriff Departments can nip the tire nippers.”

A cabbie responded to a call from a new taxi app called “Prototyped,” and it sent him to a remote substation in the hills past Prototype.
“I would say that it was no big deal,” the cabbie told us, “except that the security guys there strip searched me and mangled my doughnut for contraband. I’m not using the app until they fix it.”
Smuggling runs have been increasing into Juneau, yet local authorities couldn’t care less.
“They [Juneau police] don’t care at all. It’s all, GTFO this, and GTFO that,” whined one General Store owner. “Here, let me get you some GTFO fried chicken, or some GTFO iced coffee. It makes me sick!”
“We’re pretty excited about GTFO,” admitted a local constable. “You should see all the new things coming into the area!”
Police in the Greater Tulagi Area arrested an overexcited ZSK customer who had chained himself to the showroom model of the new jet, demanding its immediate release.
“He was an absolute nutter,” said the arresting officer.
The customer was then driven down the road, where officers decided to break for lunch.
“It was a perfect time for a break,” said the officer, “so we even bought the guy a burger. He took one look at it and started running for Archerfield, screaming “let me buy it, let me buy it. Then he ran smack into the doorframe and – bam – out like a light. I almost feel sorry for the guy.”
The police then ate all the man’s fries.
“I said I felt ‘almost’ sorry for him, right?”
A Concord jet has landed at ERIA and travelers watched with trepidation as a mysterious box was offloaded.
“This is like, the um, same place that we had a zombism outbreak,” said one baggage handler. “Ya know?”
Smuggler X’s recent opening of a “delivery and postal service” in the Archerfield area hasn’t impressed certain law enforcement agencies, who still have outstanding warrants.
“My kid still has no sand for his sandbox,” said a Waterbank Police lieutenant. “And our volleyball court has rocks.”
Agencies such as the WPD, Sheriff’s Department, ERIA PD, ERPA, and GridEx security all have outstanding warrants for the smuggler.
