  1. THIS IS CODE RED!!! We at Pongi HQ have just now received the SAME intercept fromThe Dear Evil One:

    One of our double agents has also picked up the below radio transmission:

    “Your mission is to proceed up to Nung river in a Navy
    patrol boat. Pick up Evil Pongi’s path at Nu Mung Ba,
    follow it, learn what you can along the way. When you find
    Evil infiltrate his team by whatever means available and
    terminate Evil’s command.”

    “Terminate ? Evil ?”

    “He’s out there operating without any decent restraint.
    Totally beyond the pale of any acceptable human conduct.
    And he is still in the field commanding his troops.”

    “Terminate with extreme prejudice.”
