So, we heard this groundless rumor the other day and decided it was too good not to pass it on. And we wonder why no one is giving us You Are Saving Journalism Thank God type grants. Oh, well, at least we are fun.

But there is a catch! This rumor is about a specific city agency, but we have REDACTED the identifying characteristics of the agency from the tip. Your mission (totally bogarted from Ted Casablanca) , should you choose to accept it: guess the city agency in the comments. Whomever gets it “right” (that is, as “right” as any baseless, speculative rumor can be) gets some Appeal swag. Here you go:

According to a guest at the party I’m at who insists on anonymity, his friend who works at REDACTED says that last night 4 REDACTED employees were sent to the hospital after eating pot brownies that were left on a REDACTED.

See, it’s like “Clue”! But instead of Colonel Mustard and the candlestick in the Library, it’s wonky as hell.

Alright, hit it, kids.

Have a tip for us? You have no excuse not to call/write/text/IM us it immediately. None.
