“Pinkertons Come West With Free Steam Keys”
Dearest readers, consider this a letter from the Editor–that being me–as I’d like to announce the Pinkertons have arrived in our dear town. What’s worse is that they’ve taken quite the keen interest in yours truly, Ike “Inkblot” Brewster, and the release of my newest “Keys to Success” recording.
Those of you who know me are well aware that I have many stories to tell, and I’ve been hard at work recording them but the damned Pinkertons think I’m up to no good with my little project! Those black-hats claim there’s more to the recordings than just the retelling of my old stories–that there are clues hidden within that lead to great prizes…I haven’t the slightest clue what they’re talking about!
Well, they want your help “solving” my second recording, so they’ve gone and uploaded it themselves for all of you to hear.
I’ll give the Pinkerton’s credit, they have some powerful technology at their disposal. They’ve taken my simple recording and made it into video form if you can believe it. I myself had never heard of a video, but it’s essentially a moving picture in which my voice can be heard. Impressive as it may be, I need no further proof that these Pinkerton fools are in cahoots with the Devil himself than the fact they can turn my recording into a moving picture. Demons, I say!
WANTED have created themselves a channel on this thing called YouTube and hosted my video for all to see and hear. They’d very much appreciate it if you subscribed to WANTED’S YouTube channel, as there are many more videos on the way. Oh yes, many, many more.
EDITOR’S NOTE: A YouTube subscription does NOT get you out of your Pony Express subscription. Y’all should have read the fine print where it said a subscription to my dear newspaper is FOR LIFE.
So please, enjoy my latest recording and listen close. You’ll never know what treasures hide within the words of a tantalizing tale…
Wait, I don’t think I was supposed to write that. Never you mind, dear reader, never you mind…
