Buck Chupson was thought to be lost at sea. Search parties had been deployed, but 24 hrs later, he was nowhere to be found.
The local authorities made a statement and answered press questions:
“After a rigorous investigation, we have concluded that Buck Chupson is on land.” The Sheriff stated.
After this, the crowd exhaled and some clapping broke out.
“That’s great news – where is he now?” asked a journalist.
The Sheriff looked uneasy.
“Well, we don’t know that. We just know that.. it feels like we looked just about EVERYWHERE for him at sea, and we can’t find him there. So he must be on land.”
The crowd booed the Sheriff’s bad logic and, outraged, threw wet garbage at the podium.
