It was the evening of Thursday September 29th 1938.

The Greek goddess Aphrodite was waiting in the apartment of Los Angeles Private Eye Carson Cody Albion.

Aphrodite had hired Albion to find the giant sea shell from which she had been born on the island of Cyprus.

The sea shell had been stolen from the Paphos Museum on the island of Cyprus last year.

Rumour had it that it had been stolen on the orders of a Hollywood producer.

“Did you find my birth shell?” Aphrodite asked Albion.

“I did,” Albion took off his trench coat and fedora hat, “David O. Selznick had the shell cut up and turned into pearl earrings. So I’m afraid all the bits of your shell are now gone with the wind.”

“But my birth shell was a cockle shell and not an oyster shell,” Aphrodite pointed out.

“Really?” Albion blinked, “I think Selznick better have the prescription checked on his glasses.”

The Greek goddess Aphrodite had the radio on.

“An agreement has been signed in Munich between Germany, France, Italy and Britain handing the Sudetenland over from Czechoslovakia to Germany. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain called the Munich Agreement “Peace in our time.” The Czechoslovak government naturally protested the deal. Germany’s Fuhrer Adolf Hitler referred to the Czechoslovak government as a small fringe minority with unacceptable views.”

“I imagine my pen pal in the William Shakespeare Appreciation Society won’t be so happy about this,” Albion poured both Aphrodite and himself some martinis.

“Who’s your pen pal in the William Shakespeare Appreciation Society?” Aphrodite asked as she took the martini.

“A backbench British Conservative MP who once served as a a cabinet minister in both Liberal and Conservative cabinets,” Albion answered, “A fellow by the name of Winston Churchill. A person who actually does his own research and doesn’t believe everything the government and the media tells him.”

Albion squeezed the hell out of a lemon and then threw it in the garbage.

“Holy Don Quixote,” Albion noted, “That’s one sour fruit.”

The garbage can was below an old CN Rail poster from Canada.

“Churchill?” Aphrodite sipped her martini.

“His opponents call him a conspiracy theorist,” Albion noted, “for believing that the German Nazi Party wants to conquer and rule the world.”

Diablos Nocturna Detests Vienna Vegan Sausages

MI-6 Agent Diablos Nocturna was at MI-6 Headquarters with his Canadian CSIS agent liaison Monica Dhaliwal.

Diablos and Monica were going through the text of the agreement with Iran on that country’s nuclear program that was reached earlier this week with the UN’s big 5 powers.

As Diablos read through the agreement, he was feeling more and more sympathy for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

He was also wondering in which Oval Office desk drawer the current American President might have possibly misplaced his brains.

“What do you think?” Monica asked Diablos as she smoothed her skirt.

“Well,” Diablos responded, “I remember when Microsoft’s Bill Gates came out with Windows 95 back in 1995, people in the know at the time said, “Windows 95 was Mac ’87”. I think Vienna 2015 is Munich 1938.”
