Murder on the Orient Eggspress

by ME SWINGLE | Score: 5100

12 people were sat in a cocktail bar, the lights go out! 
BANG BANG BANG BANG!
 The lights come back on and 4 people of the 12 are dead on the floor! The bartender gasps! Everyone is shocked. Luckily amongst the group there happens to be a sexy detective, theyre not afraid to solve this case and take it upon themselves to get the murders solved! 
The first person the sexy detective decides to interrogate is a very uncertain fisher-woman. She smelt of roses and was wearing a cocktail dress. The detective found this very strange as they said in the beginning of the interrogation that they had just come from work. Confused the sexy detective moves onto an old man in the corner of the room who was very upset about his injured dog. He asked if he owned a gun but he was too busy sobbing about his poor dog to answer. Next he heads over to the bartender and asks what he was doing before the lights went out?

The bartender said he was just cleaning the forks before dinner service. He then heads over to another suspect; a respectful careers advisor who had been well known in the town for getting everyone employment. He asked what they were doing and they said they were filling out paperwork for their children to be sent to camp. 
No one else wished to be asked any questions about the murders apart from one other person. They were an egg. It seemed strange to the detective that he was interrogating an egg. But he continued on with the investigation. He asked the egg what they were doing before the lights went out and the egg responded saying that they had just come back from the US after visiting its sister. 

Confused the detective asked how much it cost in flights to visit their sister. The egg said "about £1220 return flights! Was very expenisve!"
"ahhh hah!" exclaimed the detective! Eggs dont pay for flights to and from countries! Eggs fly for free! 

The egg jumps out of its seat and pull a luger on the detective! "hold it right there mister! I got 8 more people to kill in this joint!"

The detective says "not today sunny Jim" and quickdraws on the eggs! pew pewpew they exchanged shots and the egg cracks! He calls for backup and declares war on the human race! A dozen eggs charge into the club!
