Once apon a time, a lovely big _____
Called Benny decided it was time to go for a walk in the park
It was night time in the habitat of ____
Where the lovely bog made his feet feel nice
He met his friend named _____
Who had just returned from his country walk from the desert golf club, sandy dunes
Goliath said to Benny "ya know, I think this park needs a bit of a makeover"
Benny looked around, and he had to agree. For a park, there sure was alot of dirt and an absence of grass, hills, picnic tables or anything
In fact all the machinery and conveyor belts made it look more like a factory
Footsteps were heard behind them, and they heard a voice say "you realise this is for authorised personal only"
Benny protested "but jeez, it’s a park"
Jeez looked at his watch, then sighed. The Rhino pointed at the sign. "You see this? It says "bird and wombat packaging center, just somebody crossed out the 'c' and made the sign say "parkaging center"
Stunned at his knack for guessing names, Benny looked at jeez and then started to panic. Were they going to get packaged? What was going to happen next?
Just then, Xhoxomorpheus, the Octopus, head of simple names and abbreviations in the workplace, strolled into the room, tentacles waving as he spoke
"I am Xhoxomorpheus Gaglaighankhaburghanzier, the Head of Simple Names and Abbreviations in this workplace"
Benny couldn’t help himself "is that why the abbreviations are longer than the full version?"
Xhoxomorpheus slapped him in the face "don’t be smart, my friends call me MrXhoxomorpheusmantheoctobusofsimplenamesandabbreviationsmasterindegreeofinksprayingandrunningawaylikethefrenchingeneralwarfareagainstanycountrywhereanyonewhoenteredthecountrywithapistolbecomesthemostarmedmanintheentireprovince-Gaglaighankhaburghanzierlordofoctopussysquiddliethingiesandbaboonbottomsthatarenolongerred
He stopped his abbreviation short, when he heard snoring from the other 3 people in the room. Grunting, he started shouting, startling them awake, but then started go gag, because as an octopus he couldn’t really breathe in oxygen. When he fainted, Jeez phoned the emergency services to organise for him to be sent back into his ocean tank for rehabilitation so he could breathe in the water again
The emergency services told Benny that there was an old man in a cottage thousands of miles away with a very important object, and of course blindly as flamingos do, Benny walked into the wall...then decided to open his eyes, and start planning for this quest he was going to journey on
Of course, Goliath had to come too, as there was no way in hell that he was staying with jeez by himself. Everyone knows rhino's get a little horny now and then and Goliath had already seen the size of Jeez's one (his horn ok! yeesh) and the wombat quickly set out on the expedition with Benny the flamingo and they left at that very moment.
Returning in a few minutes, having left the map back in the office, Benny retrieved their directional cartograph and they resumed their journey, this time in the right direction. They trekked for miles in the sand and snow, the mud and clouds, the lava and ice and the ashes and corpses, and that was only the start
It was also the end too, and eventually the cottage came into view, meaning their journey was now at the beginning (hence it was only the start) of the end of the journey, and they opened the cottage door to see a man of about 200 (well, 45) holding a candle.
The old man stared them in the eyes and said in a wise-told voice "This candle has been burning for 10,000 years and shall continue to burn for another 10,000 years
They took a seat, but little did they know that jeez the Rhinoceros was following behind them a little way back, and after trekking through the sand and snow, the mud and clouds, the lava and ice and the ashes and corpses, he too made it to the cottage
The old man stared them in the eyes and said in a wise-told voice "This candle has been burning for 10,000 years and shall continue to burn for another 10,000 years". Jeez the Rhino said "so what" and blew out the candle
