Oh, look, this week’s Crankshaft ended whimsically after all! Crankshaft’s nemesis built a mailbox out of the rock-hard inedible brownies, and Crankshaft caused thousands of dollars worth of damage to school district property when he backed into it. Also, three children in the back row of seats on the bus were terribly injured.
