I think that might be worth a protect. Also, “boi” and “boyage”? Maybe?

I bet it's a double kill clue since "two" is in ALL CAPS. Also, why is "interesting" in ititalics? I bet that's somehow important.

I am going to just go ahead and protect pikachu4919 as explained above (it's a nice simple reasoning even if it isn't very obvious...). Thank you to the civilians that are helping out once more:D.

This may just be incidental, but I believe that Alexander Hamilton grew up in the Caribbean.

Also,since no one else has done it,I protect jonboyage, due to the reasoning discussed earlier.

The first letter of the three words spells out BAT. White-nose syndrome targets cave-dwelling bats and the fungi that causes it is psychrophilic (cold-loving), while the Pirates ride happens (partially) in a cavern.
I protect whythelongface because they do Microbe Mission and go to WWP South.

I’ll cut straight to it. hippo9 was correctly protected and PM2017 has died. No fancy story.
Finally an officer dead.
If you would like to take PM2017’s place as an officer, you must solve the next two clues I give out correctly. You will get two guesses per clue, but I will not tell you if they are right or wrong. Each clue must be solved before the next clue is given. I really shouldn’t wish you luck, but I guess I’ll wish you luck anyway.

kate!, venules, and Alex-RCHS were walking along Main Street in the Disney parks.
“These streets will make you feel brand new,” kate! said.
“That’s an interesting statement kate!,” replied venules.
Suddenly, Alex-RCHS tackled venules.
“Alex-RCHS! What happened! It’s like you’re acting like a baby,” replied venules after getting up.
“Yeah!” added kate!, “it’s like you’re zero or something.”
“Just practicing my tackle,” Alex-RCHS replied.
“Go practice that on the other side of the world,” venules said. “Or learn about it in physics class instead.”

48 hours.
If you can’t solve this easy clue… then you’re done for the clue next week.

This is targeting MattChina, because he is "0", plays football, is from New York (Jay-Z's empire state of mind, google it), and according to his sig, physics is his city.
Someone else protect him though, cuz I already have 3 accusations.

You know what, I don't see very many ID clues and I don't expect many to come, so....

I accuse MattChina because this easy clue targeting him and the use of boi.

PM2017’s ghost wrote:Ouch!!!

The worst part is that I suspected that it might be because "pirates" starts with a P, and Mickey with an M, as well as "two" interesting things. I couldn't make a connection to the 017, so I didn't say anything. Guess I should have. Fortunately, however, the sassy managed to kill the least active officer, so at least you all have the going for you.

Good luck to the rest of the officers, and get this sassy!

As a final bit of my involvement, I think this targets benewcomb, for various, not so difficult to find reasons.


Edit: ugh this is the first clue where I actually have stuff to say, but I can't. Rip

I'm highly suspicious of pikachu4919. She's well versed in Disney and in 119 likewise changed the rules so that when an officer has run out of accusations, they are out. I can't find any ID clues that point to her, though, otherwise I would accuse. Nerd_Bunny would be another person I suspect because of the trend of foodborne illness and because she? is likewise a Disney fan.

If MattChina isn't the sassy, he's definitely the target. I think the age being 0 is a good catch. Is there a way to sort users by age?

Also:
“These streets will make you feel brand new,” kate! said.
Is definitely a reference to New York State of Mind (although hippo9 already mentioned that, so good job).
