"Hey, pdurrant -- let me taste the punch now" asked pilotbob, waving his empty cup. "It looks like it's packing quite a punch now! Get it? Punch ... packing a punch?"

A muted groan ran around the room at pilotbob's latest, and worst, attempt at holiday humor.

"Sorry, no one can have any more punch now - it has to simmer a while -- I'm using my own family recipe for mulled wine." explained pdurrant.

"And it even contains its own heat source" observed Dr. Drib, using his pipe to point out the tiny green flames dancing on the bubbling surface of pdurrant's witches brew.


"Don't forget pooh -- you're in charge of popping the corn to string on the tree." said dreams.

"Putting a chicken in charge of the corn" sniggered pilotbob, emptying his cup and heading towards the window. "I'll just open this window a bit to clear out Dr. Drib's smoke - it's so thick that someone could get murdered in this room and no one would notice."
A very good point. This must mean that either it was a slowly working poison, or the brandy dreams found in the basement wasn't poisoned at all. Pilotbob was alive for a long time after drinking the punch.

It's beginning to sound like
A) pooh poisoned the punch after it was put away to simmer, or
B) the punch was never poisoned and pdurrant was drowned in it.

So what about the cookies then? Were the sprinkles poisoned or was the poison added to the cookies while the others ate dinner?
