Once upon a time......in a not so distant land lived Super....oops..I mean Little Pine.

The story began when one normal day Little Pine was walking through Fruity Town, and he heard beautiful music... "What could it be?" he wondered.
He slowly approached the soft gentle music, as if lured by an invisible force. He came upon a pine like himself, except this one was almost transparent and so fragile looking. He stared in awe as the ghostly Pine aproached him and said "Hello Little Pine, I am your great, great ancestor, and I have come here to present you with a gift".

Little Pine looked baffled, and timidly asked "What kind of gift?".
"A magical gift" the elder Pine answered, "a gift of magical powers".

And then with a twirl of her hand, magic dust flew into the air and onto Little Pine and then the strange Pine disapeared. Little Pine felt the same as before so he thought it must have been his imagination...and he made his way back into town.

Little did he know the adventure that would await him...

There once was a old prune named Prunella.
She sat in the market for many years. After some time she wanted to leave the market so one night she rolled off the market stall and began on her journey. She rolled down to the train station and saw all of the busy people and decided that the train station was not a good place to live because people might step on her.

Then Prunella went to a department store and saw the sign "no food allowed" and went to a dark alley way and did not like it because it was too dark. Prunella then went sadly back to the market and climbed back up on the stall and realised that she liked it there the best and there is no place like home.

James Prune was his name,
Saving people, his game,
He'd seek out those in trouble,
And help them on the double,
And them chase the bullys away with his cane!

One day along was he walking,
When he heard someone talking,
"Gimme that,"
"Or I'll smash in your hat with my bat"
On the door James Prune went a-knocking!

"Here here, what do you think you're doing?"
Said James Prune, not moving,
"Not bullying I hope"
"Or I'll call in the Pope"
"And then I'll take you to court and start a-sueing!"

"Us? - bullying" said the other prune, confounded
He seemed quite astounded
That James Prune had accused
Of the *victim* being abused
By them - being so profounded

"Why never" Said the bully
ever so fully,
that he'd never hurt.

There once was a guy called Prune
He never himself would groom.
So none of the girls
with big hairy curls
wanted to go out with Prune.

He layed and cried
then sat up and sighed,
cause he really wanted a gal.
Then suddenly a girl called Val
came up to him and said
I want to wed!

Prune went red and said:
Why are you bullying me?
Val then replyed: What can't you see:
I love you and don't you love me!?

Prune then said:
Are you certain.
That you want to live behind the same curtain
as me,
you see,
I never wash myself.
Underneath this layer I actually look like an elf.

She laughed and gasped:
Then I'll teach you!
So you won't smell like bird-poo
Prune smiled and they lurched
to the nearest church.

Now they have children who smell
like the cleanest water in a well,
and no one knows about Prunes last life
when he smelled and thought he would never get a wife!
