Disaster Averted in Mango Minister Competition!

We regret to inform our readers that Cooper was caught on the computer last night attempting to send the judges of Mango Minister a missive stating that his brother, Dozer, had consumed rat poison over the weekend in an attempt as a grandstanding as a ploy to garner the sympathy vote in his class in Mango Minister!

I would like to state categorically that Dozer did not eat rat poison to ingratiate himself with the judges of Mango Minster. This type of behavior is uncharacteristic of Cooper and was met with complete shock and dismay.

Cooper has been put on short rations when it comes to treats and has had a stern, yet gentle, talking to about this sort of behavior.

Dozer was completely overcome with a justifiable desire to commit homicide and had to be reminded that being "crackers" does not include a need for an anger management course.

"Yeah whatever...I need a beauty nap for the Diva division."

The kind of uncharacteristic behaviour this Mango Mister is inciting!
Hope Cooper is suitably regretful and Dozer has overcome his homicidal tendencies!
We don't want a REAL disaster,do we now?

Well.... there is something to be said for the sympathy vote. Mr. Bufus crossed the Bridge (he did not commit hari-kari; cancer finally caught up with him) during the competition and did quite well. However, I wouldn't recommend this approach to other competitors - there was much weeping and wailing in our house when this happened, and well, it's sort of permanent. Just saying...

Glad to see you napping Diva style on a cushion!

Sigh, oh how cut-throat. I fear now I do not know who to believe. I hope my judges will see through your ploys.

Mom and I are shocked at Cooper's behavior, we always thought he was an easy going laid back kind of dude...glad to see you have the competitive edge in you dude!!!

Abby is SHOCKED to read about this behavior. [Jed, too]. We've gotten a bit behind, as Abby is busy trying to monitor so many judges and contestants in Mango Minster, in her capacity as Official Guardian of Judicial Ethics for Mango Minster 2011. So we just read about Dozer's near death experience. We are so very glad that, thanks to your mom's quick action, he was quickly and effectively treated.

As this was not an attempt to bribe the judge [although it was certainly an attempt to deceive the judge], Cooper's offense does not technically fall under Abby's jurisdiction as Guardian of Judicial Ethics. However, Cooper, Abby strongly suggests that you look deep within your inherently good sportsman Cocker soul and then apologize to your brother. We prefer to hope this was a momentary abberation, perhaps brought on by a little jealousy at all the extra attention Dozer received following his Narrow Escape.
