Mayor:  (sighs)  Finally!  Send them right in.

Aide:  Are you sure you know what you're doing?

Mayor:  Of course I don't know what I'm doing;  that's why I've called for help.  These guys are experts you can trust.  They're from Truth Township and have the reputation of saving that town!

Aide:  Okay, whatever you say.  But, have you ever met any of these guys or talked with them?

                      Checkin' for bad buys..........
