After much pleading and convincing, the Newman children eventually received an advance on their inheritance.
The kids were thrilled to have a new pet to play with, until they were suddenly faced with the harsh truth of reality.
Concessions were made, and the siblings enjoyed their adequate replacements, but couldn't help but immediately fall into barbed rivalry.
No sooner were their acquisitions acquired did the children lose their property again, and then deflected all blame onto the absent party.
Empty mass graves were erected to placate the emotions of the grieving party, and to commemorate those who had died for so little.
EDIT - if you thought this was the end of this little escapade, there's still a brief epilogue of things yet to come...
