Why wasn't Brutus at his son's baseball game? Too busy watching basketball? Also, if the other team had to forfeit, then wouldn't Wilberforce be home early? Why doesn't Brutus notice that? Obviously Brutus needs to get out of that hideously gauche chair and spend some time with his family.
I suggest a road trip to Lower Bumblescum, Tennessee where they can have all you can eat opossum.
