Panel 1:"Our toxic waste has transformed me into a mermaid, and now it's polluting the waters of Lost Forest. Pretty soon, the place will be filled with mer-squirrels, mer-deer and mer-wolves. What are you going to do about it?"
Panel 2:Oh no! I flying mer-sparrow!
Panel 3:Really? Why not? If Joey the Mullet is the only connection to these people and there's no way to identify who shipped and dumped the materials, then killing him would, in fact, be a good strategy. Of course, if he's got a super-secret file detailing his relationship with Percival and his Chinese overlords (or some other fount of information that will survive his death), then maybe Mark is correct.

Panel 1:Yes, indeed, Mark. Whenever I set cars on fire to hide evidence of my recent murder attempt, I tend to hang around and see what happens next. You'll probably find Percival hanging out behind a nearby tree eating a crumpet.
Panel 2:"Mmmm...I can even catch a whiff of his British Sterling."
Panel 3:Um, what's going on in that room behind the doctor? It looks like someone just tossed a grenade through the window into the lap of the convalescing man.
