The Most Meaningful Passage
Judge Ford instructed the witness to remove his aviators helmet. His gray hair was tousled but barbered. "And play your gun in custody of the court."
"Oh my!" Flora Baumbach gasped as Otis Amber unzipped his plastic jacket, pulled out a revolver from his shoulder holster, and handed it to the judge, who locked the gun in her desk drawer. Turtle was as startled as the other tenants. "Mr. Amber," she began bravely, " it seems we are not all who we say we are. In other words, who exactly are you?"
"I am a licensed private investigator."
"Then why were you disguised as an idiot delivery boy?"
"It was my disguise."
So as you can see Otis Amber is not who we all thought he was.
