Not too long ago, in a mysterious land known to the locals as The Shigra Foon Dock (incorporated), the Great Foon brought his boat, the Chip-Tip to mooring at a deserted island. Upon this island he found a tree that bore the scared fruit Dimsy. He partook in the Dimsy, making Dimsy smoothies, Dimsy margaritas, and Dimsy Tripe, and serving them to any other passing beings that also brought their boats to this island, which the Foon dubbed "Dimsy Slip." One day, Dimsy Slip was raided by a pack of passing pirates, who pillaged, plundered, and pilfered the poor people. So they called upon a great man to come and defend them. This man hailed from a land known as "New Hampshire."
The great Foon welcomed this man on the Slip, and the man ate all the Dimsys from the Dimsy tree, leaving Dimsy Slip a fruitless, barren place, unable to support life. The Foon cast off from Dimsy, cursing the Man, and returned to the Shigra Foon Dock, never to be heard from again. The Man returned to New Hampshire, where he met a boy in a bar, offered to buy the boy a drink in a bar, and stiffed him on the check. That boy was Shay Willard.
