On March 22, 2012, a shock was felt around the world ... well, Waupaca County, mostly Clintonville. It was a 1.5 magnitude quake that shook the city, kind of, almost like a good cherry bomb on the 4th of July. Conspiracy theorists have suggested that the cause could have been an earthquake or maybe fracking in neighboring states or maybe HAARP. What is HAARP you ask? HAARP, also known as High Frequency Aural Research Program, are programs working with the government to produce sound waves to promote military programs and underground discovery.
Well, Let Me Be Frank's makes up their own story about the events of March 22, 2012. Clintonville resident Dr. Specter has a bustling business with an edible arrangement and delivery program. Since Clintonville is the birthplace of Northwest Airlines, Dr. Specter uses Clintonville as a national distribution facility for his arrangements, or does he? Blonde, Jane Blonde and Dinero, Peso Dinero are sent in to investigate the so-called earthquakes. What they find will surprise you … and you may think is Frank right? Of course he isn't!
