...shoot the pigeon?Because he was staging a coo. And why did the Generalissimo shoot the clock twice?Because it was staging a cuckoo.Why did he shoot his German wife, from whom he was separated?Because she was estranging. Ach, du. The barnyard realtor?Because he was staging a coop. All well and good. But why, then, did he shoot the warden who, in his spare time, dabbled in cooking?Because he was caging a stew.

What did the General eschew
The night he strangled her haiku?
