Nineteen Credible Witnesses

How many credible witnesses? Nineteen, sir. Descriptions similar? Not even close. Hair color match? Five Five different hair colors? Five matched. Sergeant flips open his notebook. black, gray, brown, blonde, red, bald, afro, not sure…. Eye color? Did the witnesses agree on that? “Two of them did.” The sergeant gave the young detective a mean look. “I will speak to them myself,” he said. They were on their parent’s laps, kindergarteners. “Did you see the guy?” He asked the first little girl. She nodded. “What did he look like?” “He was a green unicorn with a fluffy pink tail.”
