—The Beginning as told by Hinckley—
Mom: … Okay then. So, what was at the beginning? If that was the middle and the end was the end, what happened before the middle?
Hinckley: Uh, I already said.
Mom: When they were in Australia, what happened in Australia?
Hinckley: Uuh, renember they spreaded all the black, the thing they needed…
Mom: But they did that in Arizona. What’d they do in Australia?
Hinckley: No! Australia, renember Australia also got sprayeded all with ….
Mom: Well, who sprayed it over there?
Hinckley: The prarie dogs!
Mom: But where did the prarie dogs get it?
Hinckley: Remember the plane?!
Mom: But where did the prarie dogs get the plague?
Hinckley: Oh, the prarie dogs caught it from the very first one which is kind of weird and kind of embarrassing, but from elephants!
Mom: From elephants?!
Mom: Do you think there are elephants in Australia?
Hinckley: No! The elephants are in, um Africa!
Mom: So, okay, so…?
Hinckley: So, they started at Africa, spread it all, to all the animals there, except for the elephants so. Wait, the elephants did it to all the animals there except for the prairie dogs. The prairie dogs got the plague, then the….
Mom: Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait, I need to understand. So, the elephants had the plague in Africa?
Mom: And gave it to prairie dogs?
Mom: And the prairie dogs, how did they get to Australia? Because you said that they got it in Africa.
Mom: Or did the elephants…
Hinckley: They got the plane in….
Mom: Wait wait wait wait!
Hinckley: In Africa and got the, and got to…
Mom: So did the elephants go on the plane?
Hinckley: …Australia to from the plane and they spreaded all the people with it, then they did it to Arizona, and then BOOM! All done!
Mom: So wait, you’re telling me that prairie dogs got the black plague…?
Hinckley: From elephants.
Mom: The bubonic plague from the elephants in Africa, and then they went to Australia and spread it all over there, and now they came to Arizona to spread it all over Arizona?
Mom: Where are they going next?
Hinckley: They’re going to spread it all over the world.
Mom: Why would they do that?
Hinckley: So that they’re the only ones alive.
Mom: Oh, so you think that the prairie dogs are trying to take over the world?
Mom: I don’t know that I like that. Where would I be?! I don’t want to be a prairie dog!
Hinckley: So, they all did not live at all happily ever after, but the end!
