Well, itís a badger, thatís for sure
Feb 17th 2020 at 3:16:34 PM

In the dusty, middle-American town of Stonewall-by-the-Lake, a layabout and bum by the name of Taco Daphne du Maurier-Badger, Taco Badger for short, jumps in joy.

He cries to his friends and acquaintances, "Guys! We did it! We finally collected 5000 Slushee-Coins! You know what that means!"

Anyone who's anyone knew that the collection of 5000 Slushee-Coins, actually little paper tabs on Slushees, would have to deposit these coins to the 7-11 Corporate Headquarters in the city of Manasses, somewhere in Nevada for a large cash prize. The only issue is... Manasses is some many, many, many miles away from Stonewall-by-the-Lake.

Without much time to spend, Taco enters the driver's seat of his near-broken-down minivan, and calls out to his buddies (that's you guys), "If y'all don't get in soon, I swear I'm leaving without ya!"

Fried Baka, otherwise known as Sym, sighs, entering the minivan. "I have nothing better to do and too many ideas to make the ideas work correctly. I'm just gonna... get in the back seat." They proceeded to do so.

Wait!

Wm, dressed in all black beatnik wear and wearing a beret to match, comes stumbling out of the house and throws a handful of books in the trunk before climbing in.

Okay, now I'm ready!

"Eh, that's enough for me. Let's hit the road!"

The minivan starts down the driveway, and begins to drive steadily down the road.

"Hey, gang, we remembered the 5000 Slushee Coins, right?"

"..."

The car brakes to a halt.


Cut to about fifteen minutes later, the car yet again arrives at the exact spot it was when it stopped. "Well excuse me, I had to bring my baseball card, and the map, how was I supposed to know it was my job to bring the coins?! I thought that was After's job!"

"Uh, I'm a little late, but I brought 12 ounces of Souls Of The Innocent Bagel Spread... and some bagels," Sym adds, seemingly spacing out for a moment.

Taco begins to veer dangerously close to the side of the road, which is adjacent to a ditch.

Mid-panic, Taco wonders if Souls of the Innocent are kosher, but he is unable to break his concentration from panicking.

I calmly use my Selfie Stick to reach over to the steering wheel and veer us back onto the road.

The cereal bar gently pats Taco in the head, as his hands are on the wheel. "Ow. Hey, cereal bar!"

Taco takes his hands off the wheel, and begins to scavenge from underneath the steering wheel, before finding the bar. "Yum!" He begins to unwrap the cereal bar in delight, as the car trails on. He then proceed to scarf it down before pulling an atlas out of his back pocket.

"Alright boys, checking my map now, I see we've got a long drive ahead of us. Are there any attractions you guys wanna stop at?"

"Oh, can I have an apple, please?" says Puma, reaching into the trunk for his suitcase.

Smooth Boi meows.

"Smooth Boi says she wants an apple too," says Puma.

"Ooh, can we go to Definitely-Not-An-Evil-Deathtrap-Filled-Amusement-Park?" says Puma.
