For the Whoopsie Daisies! Their awesome super-fantastic drummer, Anngelique, requested an answer to the following:

"What would the Whoopsie Daisies do on an episode of Magnum PI?"

Answer: Only commit the worst crime imaginable.


6:30 AM - Tom Selleck slams his fist down on the alarm clock
And jumps out of bed in his A-list movie star trailer
Though it begins like any other, today will soon be one he rues
For the rest of his life

3 shadowy figures in hooded sweatshirts cut across
The parking lot of Lot B in Studio 54, Hollywood, CA
Bolt cutters lie haphazardly on the ground
Next to a hole in the chain-link fence
They will later be held as the only piece of evidence
In what is arguably the worst crime
Ever to hit the nation

Tom Selleck gargles some whisky like a man
While admiring his mustache in the mirror
If he knew the fate that lay before him
He'd go straight back to bed, but instead
He heads to Studio 54 for another day of shooting
On the set of Magnum P.I.

The criminals strike like lightning
Right as he opens the door, and immediately vanish
In a whirlwind of confusion Tom finds himself on the floor
A note is taped to his chest:
"Dear Mr. Selleck - We hope you enjoyed our tomfoolery
And please pardon the awful pun. Signed, Them WD's
P.S. Find a mirror"

Quizzically, Tom finds a mirror and screams in horror
His mustache is gone
