"Sorry, Kloppman," Jack said meekly.
"Serves ya roight, eh, Jack?"

I had fun writing this one. All in a day's work, eh? (Seriously, this took me about an hour.) Tell me what you thought! I know I left out a few newsies (Snitch and Specs, for example), but I tried to get to all the favorites. David, Les, and Spot aren't there because, well... Spot's Brooklyn, and Dave and Les live with their parents. (Wow, that sounded a lot less wimpy in my head.) Hope this was funny enough for you!
And yes, the Lord of the Rings reference was on purpose. LEGOLAS FOREVER!
Seize the day!
