The Supper Sleuths formally thank you for gracing us with your extremely busy presence! The celebrity A-list at the upcoming party is going to make for one of the best nights Hollywood has ever seen, and many of them are your clients! Make sure you take care to wear a neat outfit, since you never know when paparazzi can spring out from nowhere! Of course, looking good is that last thing on your mind, what with you working so hard to keep Hollywood out of jail! Below is your invitation, in case you need a reminder. Big-time attorneys like yourself have so many court dates, deadlines and subpoenas to attend and issue, but you definitely don’t want to miss this meeting – your very freedom may depend upon it!
Full Name: “Mose Lawson Stafford, Esq.”
Favorite Animal: “The Mastiff, loyal yet with cutthroat instincts, like me.”
Favorite Vacation Destination: “A remote farm off the grid in Western Montana, where no one can find me for a few days a year.”
Favorite Color: “Green, easy.”
Favorite Food: “Who’s got time? Whatever my secretary gets me that uses only one hand.”
Favorite Song: ““America the Beautiful,” I love this free country.”
Mose, you are a renowned attorney for many of the biggest Hollywood stars. You try to keep a fairly low profile despite your wealth and reputation of power and esteem. Though you are a brilliant law scholar and currently the principal writer for a most prestigious law journal, your speaking skills are surprisingly poor. Your voice has a strange quality that’s hard to put your finger on. Because of your speech impediment, you lack confidence. You are here tonight as an honored guest, but now that there is a missing persons case involving several of your top clients, you are hot on the job, and charging by the hour! Milk it for all you can, but in a sly, good-natured sort of way, asking probing questions and taking notes on the case while you dine. You speak with a British accent.
Mose, you should look the part of an old, wise, gentleman attorney. We suggest a suit with dress shirt and tie, briefcase, and glasses. Your hair should be parted and combed over, but not very neatly. Your appearance should suggest you just don’t have time to care, and if you did, it wouldn’t matter because you have very little fashion sense. Make it very clear that you weren’t paid or chosen for your looks, but for your knowledge of the books. If you can, please try to wear a long gray beard and bring a walking stick or staff. If anyone makes fun of your voice or appearance tonight, hold up the staff and say, “Like I always say, speak softly, and carry a big stick!” You might bring business cards to pass out to potential clients.
