I just got this in a PM.

Shady's Quote for da week:

"A man can't be too careful in the choice of his enemies. "

Oscar Wilde.

The sender's name was Shady. I immediately went to City Hall to check who it was from. It turns out that "Detective Shady" has a very old, very neglected licence of his own.

I has seen dat da great debacle, I means March Madness, is upon Sleuthville again. Apparently someone has even entered yours truly. There aint no accountin' for da lengths some schleps'll go t'get into my good graces.

Just like Oscar Wilde, Shady reckons, 'popularity is the one insult I have never suffered.'

So Shady don't expect to get too far, and Shady don't care. Good luck to dose dat do.

My respect to youse and yours.

Shady.

Seen a lotta new faces round Sleuthville. Started realisin' dat some of dose new faces were just old faces spruced up a bit.

Course now Shady aint one to talk when it comes to faces. I got's me one of course, I aint like Jimmy 'da Wall' Shinkelheimer who got his countenance rearranged wid a steam press, (never cross yer Bookie, dats all I'm sayin') I just likes to keep mine in da shadows. But I think Ol' Shakespeare, despite him talkin funny like, had it right when he said:

“God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.”

I guess I wonder, when I see all dese brilliant disguises you is all wearin', what youse all have to hide.

My respect to youse and your families.

Shady.

Firstly, let me summon up some goodwill from down near my bootstraps to congratulates Sal Iva for bein' da premiere hunter-type out dere at da moment.

But now I hear dat youse is all let one of dem low-lifes escape? Maybe youse should put Sal on da job, since he seems to be da only one ups to it.

Then again, another one of dem dead greeks, Herodotus, said: “Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.”

So maybe you is all lookin for a ghost...

My respect to youse and yours.

Shady.

Not entirely sure why I got this, but here you go. Enjoy:

So I see dat da Little Runt has gotten youse all in the Prince's bad books. Now dere's a man who don't like to be made to look like no fool.

Me, I'm thinkin the Prince shoulda hired some professionals from the get go, not left it to youse bunch of low lifes who is, in my books, only one very small step above the Villains you is chasin'.

I read in some fortune cookie “Failure is not falling down but refusing to get up."

Still I think after youse has failed so miserably tryin' to find this Malatesta fellow, that maybe stayin down aint such a bad thing after all.

Stick to Shady's motto:

"If at first youse don't succeed, give up, no use bein' a damn fool twice."

My respect to youse and yours.

Shady
