MacGuffin and Puffin met in the foyer of the Royal
Explorers Trespassers Club in London in 1938, shortly before the outbreak of World War Two. MacGuffin had just returned from an expedition to Tuva and Puffin was about to embark on a voyage to Ceylon via Madagascar and the Seychelles. The outbreak of war halted their plans for a joint tour of darkest Nottingham, and they both joined the RAF, where Puffin was awarded the Victoria Cross for extreme bravery and MacGuffin earned the Lily Liver for spending the entire war hiding under a bunker on the seventh fairway of Sandwich golf course.
After the war they returned to America, the land of their birth, and took up residence in an abandoned loft in Brooklyn, which they converted to an art studio and later rented to Andy Warhol. After abandoning the loft they disappeared and despite the efforts of their family and friends, they were not located for more than 50 years. To this day neither will admit their whereabouts during that period, but sources close to Puffin suggest that they may have been either working for the government in New Mexico or slumming with the Kennedys on Cape Cod. Reports that the duo were seen exiting a 1960′s British police box near the Thames estuary have been largely discredited.
The pair resurfaced in early 2011, living apart but corresponding regularly via the internet. Sources report that Puffin is located somewhere in the Mid-Atlantic while MacGuffin appears to be residing in New York City.
This website represents the complete and developing record of their personal correspondence, as revealed to Wikileaks by an anonymous source close to MacGuffin. We have taken every precaution to ensure the veracity of these letters and cables, and try to post them in as timely a manner as possible.
