It was a dark and stormy night. No matter that it was a Bunday holiday. For the last man on Earth sat at his table working on a crossword puzzle, while his dog slept on the couch nearby.
Suddenly, there was a knock at the door! Stifling a scream, he motioned to his dog, now awake, to stay put and stay quiet. He quietly moved to the window and peeked as carefully as he could to try and see just what was out there. He fell over backwards, startled, when the face of a deer met his on the other side of the window.
The deer was wearing a necktie and had a messenger bag slung around his neck. It called out, "Hello! Have you heard the good tidings brought to us by our Lord Eeble sonk? If you can spare a moment, I'd like to come in and talk with you about it."
The last man on Earth drew his .45 that he always had with him, thinking, venison tonight. But then he thought of the words of Admiral Ackbar from the old Star Wars movie; yes, it could be a trap.
Suddenly, a knock was heard at the back door.
