Tragedy has befallen Gussie Finknottle. Upon rising in the morning he went to feed his newts and, to his horror, discovered that he had forgotten to put the cover on the aquarium the evening before. Needless to say his newts, Queenie, Irving, Samantha, Elizabeth and George were not in their home but scuttling about Gussie's flat and hiding from him in various places.
For several hours, Gussie tried to track down his newts, but as soon as he spied one and was persuing it, a second would scuttle across the floor, breaking Gussie's concentration whereupon he would lose track of any newts whatsoever.
Driven to madness, he ran into the street yelling "Help! Help! Help!" just at the time Monty Bodkin happened to be passing by. Listening to Gussie's tale of woe, Monty suggested that they nip round to the Drones club to get some volunteers to help hunt the newts down, on the grounds that any Drone at ten in the morning who hadn't had too many Gin & Tonics would be at least equal to the task of hunting down a newt.
At the Drones club, Gussie & Monty enlisted the help of Orlo Porter, Catsmeat Potter-Pirbright and Kipper Herring. They descended upon Gussie's flat and managed to round up the errant newts in short order. One was found in a shoe, one behind a copy of Oliver Twist on the shelf, one newt hid under a sofa, one in a desk drawer and one was found in the pocket of a jacket.
Later in the day, the 'Fearless Newt Hunters' as they called themselves were having celebratory snifters at the club. Gussie was relating the tale to the bartender, but (unused to the effects of beverage alcohol as he is) he forgot who found which newt, where it was found, what distinguishing colour of spots each newt had or which order they were found in.
Can you help him remember the correct tale from the following ten clues?
