Justice for Bananas Gorilla
Within the classic tome of Richard Scarry's Busiest People Ever, Lowly Worm leads Sergeant Murphy on a chase to catch someone who has robbed the grocery store. After failing to find the real culprit, Lowly Worm accused Bananas Gorilla for the simple reason that "Out of all those people Bananas was the only one carrying something [bananas, of course] that could be stolen from a grocery store." With only flimsy circumstantial evidence far away from the scene of the crime, Sergeant Murphy carts Bananas Gorilla off to jail.
Does this really make sense, especially since Bananas Gorilla grows his own organic bananas in his own backyard? Who is really robbing the grocery store, and why do Sergeant Murphy and Lowly Worm hold grudges against Busytown's favorite ape? Blogger Brad the Gorilla continues the ongoing journalistic investigation in his blog that Simian Gazette calls "a roaring success" and tony.dowler.com calls "a blog that just won't go away."
