Introduction

After reviewing your memo, Assistant Director Walter Skinner has made the recommendation that you should be promoted.  As you are moving into your new office, AD Skinner calls you back into his office to inform you that a confidential note was placed on his desk, accusing you of a federal crime:  plagiarism.  You have been placed on suspension until the outcome of the investigation.  An unknown alien substance has been spreading like wildfire. 

 

 

According to the Oxford English dictionary, the word plagiarism comes from the Latin plagiarius which means “kidnapper.

 

 

An unknown alien substance known only as “The Black Oil,” is responsible for this plagiarism.  You must investigate further in order to exonerate yourself and expose the truth behind this fraud.
