–Leonard Henry Courtney (among others)

No, the Tuxedoed Terrors sit forthright against a flock of evildoers so fowl even their name causes the homeowners’ association to quake in its collective britches.

29-3

What crimes do they commit?

That’s right: turkeywalking. (What, you thought they would stoop to jaywalking?)
