Ransome is one of five playable characters in Thimbleweed Park, the new adventure game from those *beeping* *beeps* Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick. (What, you've never heard of them? They're only the guys who *beeping* invented the genre with Lucasfilm's Maniac Mansion...)
He's obviously a jerk, but Ransome's not full of *beep* when he says that in Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems. Between the haunted hotel, the giant pigeons clucking about "signals", and the town founder's obsession with vacuum tubes, this place is *beeped* up. Nobody in this town can be trusted -- not even the two *beepers* trying to crack the case!
For some other perspectives on what the *beep* is going on, check out these earlier trailers:

Oh, and did you hear about the toilet paper scandal?
Don't people have better things to worry about than *beeping* toilets?
Let's face it: in a town this weird, with a mystery this big, the *beeping* locals can't be trusted to get to the bottom of things. Sorry, but you're going to have to get your hands dirty when Thimbleweed Park releases for Xbox One, Windows, Mac, and Linux in a month or two. This game ain't going to play itself.
