I just received an interesting letter in the mail.
At first I thought it was a wedding invitation, but then I noticed there was no return address. After opening it, I realized it’s definitely an invitation but that’s about as much as I can figure out. It’s from someone named Selma for an NYC event on October 17th. I feel pretty confidant in stating I have never met anyone named Selma in my life.
I have a suspicion what this might be about but I’ll hold off until I get confirmation. (This isn’t the first cryptic invite sent to the Urban Prankster offices!) I’ve transcribed the copy below.
New York City
The Cardinal Case
Secrets stole I, treasures too;
I invite you to pursue.
How to win my worthy gifts?
I am one of many shifts.
This Hermaea worth shall prove
And the chaff from wheat remove.
Will you my fond pageant see
And earn this purloined property?
Place to place, we’ll celebrate.
Kindly, gentles, save the date.
