The Spiceman Strikes Again

It happened today at 5 o'clock.  The Mininger family was getting ready for company to come and eat dinner, when the Spiceman struck again.  The Spiceman, also known as Israel Mininger--Izzy, to his friends, has been involved in several other spice incidents, as well as a baby powder explosion, and an egg fiasco.  He has been described by a young friend of the family named Mary Joseph* as "a monster". 
In this particular incident, the spices he scattered were Mrs. Dash's Onion and Herbs.  The Spiceman, using stealth, and taking advantage of his parents being distracted with cleaning the house, snuck the bottle out of the kitchen and proceeded to scatter the entire bottle in the movie room, causing it to smell strongly of onion and garlic.  His mother, Tammy, was too angry to comment.
Fortunately, the Spiceman was apprehended by his father and put into a time out after receiving a spanking.  He appeared remorseful, and his mournful wailing could be heard for at least fifteen minutes after being caught.  Having served his sentence, he is now once again free, and one can only hope he has been sufficiently rehabilitated from his spicy inclinations.  Otherwise, it will only be a matter of time before the Spiceman strikes again!
