Evidence Card 0089: Standing Stones

“Broga, I don’t want to ruin your day, but …”

“Well, my crew chief called in sick, so it’s already ruined, Hamar.  What?”

“It’s upside down.”

“What’s upside down?”

“The stone circle.”

“You’re kidding.”

“Nope.  Here’s the sheepskin with the plan.”

“Okay … right, here’s the standing stones, here’s the stones on top.”

“No, the king wants it to look like a crown.  Flat stones on the bottom, other stones pointing up.  See this stick figure here for scale?”

“Stick figure?  I thought that was a camel.”

“There aren’t any camels in Britain, Broga.  You know that.”

“Well, shit.  Why didn’t anyone tell us before we lifted those stones?  You know how long it takes to get those frickin’ things up that high?  Wasn’t the head druid supposed to come down and inspect?”

“He fell in a bog.”

“Oh, that’s right.  Well … wait, the king’s really sick, isn’t he?”

“Yep, he’s knocking on the door, if you know what I mean.”

“Maybe if we drag this out a couple more months, he won’t live long enough to complain.”

“If you want to handle it that way, that’s your funeral.  Just make sure you have the circle done by Autumn, or the harvest festival is going to suck.”
