SWAT Team Deployed to House of Gregor Samsa
Police responded to a call from the Samsa household yesterday, where the manager of a local sales organization was
reportedly threatened by an unusually large insect of indeterminate species. "We thought it was something we definitely needed to investigate," said Franz Hermann, local police captain. "I mean, you hear a
story about a giant insect appearing in an apartment, the first word that comes to mind is, 'check'. So we did."
"I threw some apples at it, I think maybe I got it with one or more," said Samsa senior, a remarkably hale and hearty sixty-year-old
who nevertheless claims disability retirement because of periodic indigestion. "I don't know where the heck my son went. He had better show up for
work though, because I owe Verwandlung a little money and Gregor had better pay it back for me. That's what kids are for, to pay back
the debts incurred by their parents."
