The Art of Swindling

by Anonymous | Score: 5900

Silence. Absolute and udder silence. That was all that you didn't hear before the new recruit to the dentistry rammed through the front door into the check-in. He was quite the ambitious dentist. He believed, that the best way to take care of teeth was to not have them in the first place. So he began a global campaign to 'detooth' the world. Once he missed his removal a bit and removed a wishbone. Surprisingly, all his reviews are four stars or more.
However, following a meteor shower that destroyed the dentist He was left all alone, and his client and coworkers had all died. He was furious. So, he went to court. He went to an extremely talented judge name George Grinvile and demanded that the meteor pay compensation for its crimes. Justice was not in his favor. The judge ruled two things that day: A: judging by the dentist's mannerisms he is mentally ill, and B: the meteor was immune to sues. 
This incited rage in the dentist so he changed his name to Jerry, and bought a skiing jacket.
Jerry decided it was time to go see New York. While there he participated in many things that his rural town had made him believe were normal, like breaking every glass window he saw.
On his escape from New York, he met a warmhearted aircraft engineer who dreamed of escaping to Jamaica where she could take care of two hundred monkeys, and swindle visitors to get rich. 
To gain Jerry's trust that she was legit, The engineer did a tarot reading for him. This completely won over Jerry, and the two left to Jamaica and made a bet. Whoever could count the most constellations by sun-rise wins, the other has to touch monkey poop, Jerry lost.
When they arrived in Jamaica they met a stoic auctioneer name Rever Randull. Randull thought the the art of swindilling an art which they became very talented in. And with their new found skill they lived happily.
