After hours

I went to the mall to exchange some holiday gifts, but I got there too late. They were closed.


Don't you hate that? It's not as though you can have any fun at the mall after it closes for the night.

More news out of Poptropolis...

Another odd news report just came down the transom. We'll just copy it exactly as we received it:

------------------------

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DECEMBER 27, 2012 -- Mews Foundation seismologists have verified reports of "sizable tectonic activity" taking place beneath the Poptropolis Games. "We've heard the stories about the island returning to the seas whence it came, but, frankly, we thought that smooth-talking emcee was just being dramatic," said Mews Foundation spokesperson Cheerful Spinner. "However, at this time we are not confirming that the Poptropolis Games are, in fact, on the verge of sinking back into the sea."

When asked if the Mews Foundation was denying that such an event was taking place, Spinner had no comment.

This is a breaking news story... updates as events warrant...

Breaking news

We just received this strange news bulletin. Thought we'd pass it along...

------------------------


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DECEMBER 21, 2012 -- We are tracking reports of seismic activity in the North Poptropica Sea. Initial data indicates that the tremors are based in the proximity of the Poptropolis Games. Mews Foundation seismologists are en route to the location to investigate further. At present, there is no reason to fear widespread earthquakes or further damage to the Poptropolis ruins.

This is a breaking news story... updates as events warrant...

What do you suppose all that's about? Is it the end of the world?
