Trippin' Episode
26 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

So these guys go into shops, buy an assortment of the same little ceramic statues, and proceed to smash them in front of witnesses, usually the store owner.

They paid for the statues, so what does he care? Well, he's a witness and he tells any reporter or policeman what took place.

Naturally they are going to investigate, especially when Lois learns that one of these smashers is a felon.

She tails him and sure enough, he and his partner do it again, at another store.

What they are after is clues to the hidden loot, but wait a minute.

Had they NOT smashed the statues in the store, but taken them home and done this in private, no one would have been suspicious. No one would have seen any suspicious behavior! It was like these guys were wanting to be caught! And the clues? Clark called them a rebus.

He wrote down what items were found in the small statues.

They were things like a toy car, a toy cow, a pin, little monopoly pieces looking things.

So Clark writes them down and proceeds to go "let's remove these letters and these letters." How did he know which letters to remove? He ends up with TWO LETTERS and a number or two as well.

It's a Post Office box, Lois says.

There's the loot.

Hey, guys, next time you want to hide some money or whatever it was, find an easier way. There's got to be an easier way than going through all this and fouling it up this badly! Geez!
