RE: JB's <<explanation for the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Air
WB: Working title: Sherlock Holmes' <<Adventure of the Giant Toad Pinger of
the Indian Ocean Gyre>>.
A remake of <<Ms. in a Bottle>>, with subtle Austin Powers overtones. A PRC
spy ship, disguised as a Chinese junk, fishes up a bottle in the garbage
patch of the Indian Ocean Gyre. In his message, Dr Evil, having perfected
the Incredible Projector Tongue on his new headquarters, the Toad Pinger,
demands <<ONE MILLION DOLLARS>> in exchange for crew & passengers of MA370.
(Subtle disguising of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 is, indeed, a nice
touch, JB.) Suggest relocation to Bermuda Triangle as more credible setting.
