Tom the Artistic Tinkering Thief

by MMoose | Score: 3950

A loud crash came, multiple glass shards spreading throughout the living room floor. The thief pivoted through the now shattered window, dancing about on his tippy toes. Tonight was thanksgiving, as one might be able to tell from the split wishbone on the floor. Lucky for the thief, the home of the family he's broken is completely desolated; besides one individual. The thief froze, a eerie silence as he looks up to see a burly muscle man. There was no doubt this man was a sailor, no, he was in-fact wearing sailor clothing with a sailor hat and a sailor pipe.
"Classic thieves," The sailor snorts. "Tinken' yee'v can break into mah' home cuz it's Tankgivin, eh?" ... Lucky for Tom the Thief, not only was he a thief, but also a independent inventor! He unsheathed a comically oversized paintbrush from his side, pressing a button to activate its sleeping dart blowpipe mechanism! ... All that came after was a very.. Strange noise, as if someone was passing gas. "Oh.." Tom quietly says, as he realizes the noise was from his contraption, it didn't work!
Tom quickly dived away from the sailor as they tried to grab him by the scruff.
