MC-TPSS English Dept. Location Was Wrong.

A customer walks into a diner and orders eggs and toast. Suddenly and without a word, the sole employee of the diner, Javier, is taken away by the authorities. No one else in the diner notices. The customer is left watching his eggs continue to cook on the grill. What happens next? (Larry Fondation, “Deportation at Breakfast”)

A chef is being held as a political prisoner. He escapes from his shackles, and a college professor is captured and held in his place, in a case of mistaken identity.
