According to the police report, the entire fiasco could have been avoided. The day began innocently, a typical family of edamame out for a stroll. They left the cool comfort of the refrigerator as they had done on countless days, trekking southward through lush green pastures of fresh spinach. The fatal error occurred when they forgot to bring water. With temperatures soaring, heatstroke was inevitable.
Police found the bodies beneath an avalanche of shredded butternut squash topped with tomato salsa. As a last resort, the edamame family had taken refuge within the hollow of an avocado buried in the rubble. Perhaps, they thought they would escape, but the fork had other ideas.
