"You must come over and help me," Duffus exclaimed on the phone to his neighbor OD-1. "I've just been knocked unconscious by a prowler."

OD-1 trudged through the deep snow and arrived to find Duffus hiding behind his couch. "All right this isn't hide and go seek (that's another teaser): what is going on here?"

"I heard noises coming from the barn; noises like someone banging on the barn doors and as you know my barn has been empty for years. I went out to see who was there and checked the lock on the door. Everything seemed normal but as I turned back to the house I was struck on the head by the prowler and knocked out. When I came to, I ran to the house and called you!" exclaimed Duffus.

OD-1 looked out the window at the barn and could see clearly the large snow angel where Duffus did his face plant when he lost consciousness. "There's no prowler Duffus, let me tell you what happened."
How did OD-1 know what happened and that there was no prowler?
