    A death has occured at the traveling carnival , one half of the worlds smallest twins has been found dead by his own hand , they both shared the record for the worlds smallest man for many years . Their envy for each other was well known as each wanted the title all to himself . They were very old and starting to have trouble walkig due to advanced arthritis .
    A rookie cop quickly fills out a suicide report while the senior detective searches the room . He tells the rookie to stop and fill out a homicide report , and to go arrest the mans twin brother

    The evidence he found was two pieces of wood of different lenghts , some sawdust , and a small saw .

    Explain ?

    does it have anything to do with a see saw? (serious question-well, as serious as you can be when talking about circus shorties)

    it has something to do with one twin changing thelengths of the wood to create the illusion that one twin was chaning in height or something right?

    You got it ! The wood was from the arthritic little fellas cane . The brother cut a bit off of it to fool the other into thinking he was growing and hence had nothing to live for . Good job little_smith !

    Wow, cant say I liked that one very much. Its not really murder if he only convinces his brother that he is growing.

    Assisted suicide then ? And we all know how illegal that is , especially in carnivals and Michigan .
