Thank you, Inspector. I’m ready.

Yes, I understand my rights as a resident extraterrestrial. No, that won’t be necessary.

Of course. Ask me anything. I only wish to see justice done.

Loved the Twabble. Nothing better than a good poop joke -- except a poop joke with a pun!

This episode will show up in the People's Choice. WOW. Well written, lightweight take on classic murder mysteries. And the art, WOW. That art is perfect!
I love the fact that I kinda forgot about the title until halfway through the story.
The drabble and twabble were perfect fits. All in all, one of the best in a while!

The Dribblecast, we don't care if you sound like an idiot.

Yep. Great episode, great stories, great cover art.

Lord "Volcanic" Ash... :P Get it? Get it? Wait, don't go!

"What's that bulge in my belly, you ask inspector?
That's my Ash."

Or "I swallowed her, my Ash!"

I read this in F&SF last year; as I listened, I remembered the general thrust of the story, and it was great to experience it again knowing the "secret."
