1. And that’s the last time she ever got involved with an elephant trainer.

2. He decided to run off and join the circus.

3. Despite all the evidence, he was found innocent by reason of insanity.

4. The door closed and with it the hope for world peace.

5. “And that,” Pandora said, “is why you should always label your boxes.”
