The announcers on Big Shot sounded as excited as always.
"Johann Sebastian Smith is worth six million woolongs!" said Paunch.
"Wow, that's a great opportunity for those bounty hunters out there!" agreed Judy.
"Get your ships ready for this one, cowboys!" she added cheerfully.
Jet looked up from the couch. "Say, Spike, did you hear that?"
Spike flopped down next to him. "Hear what?"
"Six million woolongs for this bounty," replied Jet. "We could use that for food."
"Maybe we could get meat for once," said his partner. "What do you think?"
Meanwhile Ed was sitting in the corner, typing furiously with her toes.
"Johann Sebastian Smith! Here, here, here. Wanted for murder, arson, and ... ooh, something else? Ah, ill-egal weapons man-u-fac-turing!"
"We can get this guy," said Spike, but without much enthusiasm.
"We could, maybe," said Jet. "But it sounds like he has a lot of firepower. It would be tough."
"Faye might help," said Spike, still sounding lackluster.
"How, by doing her temptress act?" asked Jet sarcastically.
"Johann Sebastian has a girl-friend already!" said Ed. "Let's see, let's see, let's see... she escaped from a prison. Nasty, nasty."
"What was she in for, Ed?" asked Jet.
"Oooooh! She's a terr-or-ist!"
"What's the bounty on her?" asked Spike.
"No bounty yet," said Ed. "She can go back to jail for free!"
"Say," said Jet. "We still have plenty of noodles."
"Noodles sound good," agreed Spike, curling up on his side of the couch for a nap.
Jet closed his eyes, and soon they were both snoring.
