Hecot Smithly Announces "Duckton Tax"
Mayor Hecot Smithly of Mulch Park, Nebraska, has announced a special tax to be levied upon anyone besides him who uses the hole to go to the Center of the Earth. His announcement was met with a mixed bag of comments:
"Tax and spend. He doesn't surprise me." Millionaire William Towelamp
"This is unfair. I didn't know about the tax when I entered this scary scene to rescue Bill Duckton, my colleague." Angela Ramos, reporter
He deserted me and now he wants to share in the riches of the Center of the Earth? He has got to be kidding." Bill Duckton, reporter
On another note, Ace reporter, Bill Duckton, has announced that he is having a great time at the sports festival in the center of the Earth. He has transmitted that Centerofearthians are great hosts and not only has he put on a few pounds due to their cuisine, but also that they are so nice that he has decided to stop referring to them as creatures.
