Ice Cream Indecision.

January 20, 2012

They had been walking for what felt like many days across the grassy plains of Grassy Plains Land, the world’s most grassy theme park. Hector was exhausted, and his brother, Donatello, had been carrying him for the last few hours.

The pair had managed to get separated from their friends whilst considering whether it would be best to buy ice cream before or after they went on the park’s most famous attraction, “The Lawn Mower”. Upon turning around (having decided that they shouldn’t have ice cream at all because they were on a diet to impress the “laydees”) their friends were gone. Hector and Donatello panicked, running about wildly with their eyes shut, flailing their arms as they went, punching policemen, pushing old ladies over. It was carnage.

Awakening in a daze from their fear-born insanity, the brothers found themselves in their grassy predicament.

If the story had ended here, its moral would be as follows:

“Do not faff about when deciding whether or not to have ice cream. If you want some, just get some. Otherwise your friends will leave you to wander an endless grassy field until the end of your days.”

Luckily the story does not end here, as that moral is not particularly enlightening.

The brothers eventually found themselves back at the “The Lawn Mower”. The brief sense of relief that they felt was quickly followed by horror as they looked upon the damage they had wrought in their panicked insanity.

Ashamed, they turned themselves into the police, who were already aware of the crime thanks to an angry old woman who had been one of the armadillo’s victims.

Seeing that the pair were sorry, and that this was their first offence, the officer let them off with a warning and told them the real moral of the story:

“Do not faff about when deciding whether or not to have ice cream. If you want some, just get some. Otherwise your friends will leave you to wander an endless grassy field until the end of your days.”

Oh. The moral was the same.

Thanks to Marcello for sending this in, no idea where he found it!
