The universe, observing M.B.P.’s activities says “That crap is just wrong.” An audit of the books reveals that M.B.P. is the result of a gross accounting oversight, because three halves do not make actually a whole. M.B.P. is removed from any possible world line, and it is as if it never existed. In fact, the universe is somewhat touchy about these kinds of causality issues, so any mention of M.B.P. in the future could cause the entire worldline to vanish in a fit of pique. Fortunately, since everyone is part of the worldline, they never heard of M.B.P. Only the narrator knows about him, and he met with an unfortunate accident. What? Who are you, and what are you doing here. Ow! Stop that! Oh no! Urk!
