Meanwhile it is 1988,at the time of the sixth republic. And in Paris, Gendarme Jacques L'oiseau has been summoned to the office of chief inspector Hubert Foie-gras of the Sûreté...
"I put you on traffic duties and you still mess up! That blindman, Aldo 'the fox' Vanucchi ,was the look out for his master...The gold bullion smuggler Tees Maar Khan!"
"That is impossible, Sir."
"Why ?" "Because he is blind." "Oh really? Then tell me how does an idiot become a policeman?Answer me that!" "Easy,Sir.All he has to do is enlist..." "Shut up!...Anyway, you're here because of the jewel heists we are experiencing..." "But Sir, Lady Camilla Lipton is the culprit.She is the notorious Silver Phantom! Jewel thief par excellence!"
"And as i keep informing you, L'oiseau,show me the evidence!"
"It is right there. In that file in front of you."
This? lets see... oh yes, here in june 1985, the peoples' republic of Carraway, 'the jewel of the Delta' goes missing... and there , in 1984 ,in the Democratic republic of Cardamom,'El corazon' vanished...But voila! look at this ...Joan Wilder was present on both occasions!...i take it Ms Wilder is suspect?" "The Joan Wilder?" "Yes." "No, Sir." "Why?" "Because ,Sir, Wilder is American.The main witness says the thief is British." "Who is the Main witness?" "Fozzie the bear .At both times Lipton was at both locations and also in the kingdom of Wakamibia. " "Let me guess... she took 'the Panther'." "No. Actually the Panther is the ruler of Wakamibia. Lipton took the fabled 'Black Panther' diamond and a consignment of Oscilatium" "Wakamibia! You imbicile,L'oiseau! Don't you mean Wakanda and vibranium? "No." 'Then why did i say them?' ''Exactement, Perhaps,it is the mandela effect.Our history is being rewritten...Or your memory is the finest crumbly Helevita fromage." "That ,L'Oiseau, is Looney Tunes" "Au contraire...Looney Toons." "Right ,that does it! you are finished! i shall drum you out of the Sûreté faster than..."
The phone rings..."That was the President.You are reinstated to your rank .The Sultan of Lambtagine wants your help to recover the Blue Bagheera... Inspector L'oiseau!"
