Virgil’s Final Prank
Virgil was a prankster.... and an inventor. Last year? A soap that glued people’s hands together. A few years before that… a lawnmower that planted dandelions as it cut the grass. (He thought it would be hilarious to loan the Dandelionator to unsuspecting neighbors.)
But this time, he’d come up with the funniest of prank machines, From remote locations, the Lifter-Upper could pull up a lady’s skirt (only slightly--Virgil was always a gentleAnd fman). It could lift a toupee into the sky. It could even remove the maraschino cherry off the top of an ice cream sundae.
