We're going to take you elsewhere today. Poor Man is digging back to his roots, a farm in Georgia. Poor Man just got off another plane back to his home to visit his father. "Ah, random town in the country that the government didn't feel like namingsville", said Poor Man, "It's even worse than I remembered it. But, I'm not here for Nostalgia, I'm here to see family".
Just then a passing farmer started laughing. "Shut up Bill, this is for real!", shouted Poor Man.
Poor Man walked to the same farm he grew up in. He noticed a red carpet leading up to the door. "Aw, he does love me, might as well make an entrance".
Poor Man was about to step on the red carpet, when suddenly a goat came and tackled Poor Man to the ground. "Ow! Hey Clashy. I missed you least of all".
Then, right out of the barn, came Poor Man's father, but people call him Poor Daddy. "Poor Man, what did I tell you about insulting the goat!".
"Hey dad, how are things?", asked Poor Man.
"Heh heh, you are a funny guy Dad", laughed Poor Man.
Poor Daddy gave Poor Man a blank look, then said, "Where's Richard boy?".
"Oh, he didn't come here Dad".
"So, you dare to come back here without Richard, he's the only reason I put up with you boy!".
"I love you too Dad", mumbled Poor Man.
"Well, if you're going to be staying here for a week, might as well give you a room. I guess you can sleep in Richard's room".
"Richard's room, you mean, the forbidden area, I get to stay there!".
"Yea, and don't come out".
"Ha ha, still a funny guy Dad", said Poor Man, "Boy it's gonna be some night, I love you dad".
"I love Richard Poor Man, you are indifferent".
"I'm going to unpack", mumbled Poor Man, "Oh I can't wait to sleep on that famous silk red bed".
But, Poor Man didn't get to sleep on that bed. Right by the bed, Poor Man slept with no blanket, and only with a brick to sleep on. "Dad, why can't I sleep on that bed?".
"You'll dirty it up with your germs", said Poor Daddy, "Now bulk up and enjoy your brick. You're lucky to have that, but try not to roll it around, that's your breakfast".
Poor Daddy then closed the door, leaving the room pitch black. Poor Man put his head on the brick. "Good to be home", mumbled Poor Man.
Just then he heard kicking and voices from his bag. "Elephant, I told you not to eat that bean burrito before we snuck in!", shouted Sharky.
"Shut up!", screamed Sharky, "He's gonna hear us and find out we snuck in the luggage despite his orders!".
"God I'm hungry, I shouldn't have thrown out all his snacks to leave room", said Sharky, "Should've thrown out the unimportant stuff like clothes and sentimental values".
Poor Man then turned on the lights (Which, in this part of the country, is a jar filled with fireflies) and opened the bag, to find Sharky and Elephant bickering. "What are you guys doing here!".
"Uh... we didn't sneak in?", said Elephant.
"Shut up, and let me handle it!", ordered Sharky, "We didn't sneak in".
"Then what are you doing here!?".
"Well, as your guardian angels, it's our duty to make sure you are well", explained Sharky "And you forgot your snacks, so we came to return it, but Elephant forgot them. Then a break dancing badger came in and knocked us out, and here we are!".
Poor Man gave the two a look, then said, "All right guys, I understand, you did it for my well being, your guys' loss anyway", explained Poor Man, "I asked you guys not to go because I knew you wouldn't survive a day in the country".
"SHUT UP POOR MAN!", shouted Poor Daddy from the bottom floor, "YOU MAY BE USED TO THE CITY, BUT HERE, A SINGLE DROP OF A NICKEL CAN BE HEARD BY THE WHOLE BLOCK!".
"THEN THEY MUST BE REALLY ANGRY NOW!", replied Poor Man.
"He's right Sharky, that man sounds angry and mean".
"I"m angrier and meaner than that guy", said Sharky, "I'm built for the outdoors, I'm tough as nails".
"You're made of fibers".
"And my fibers are tough as nails!", shouted Sharky, "You sit back and relax, and we got the house work under control. Because we can handle it!".
"Wow, ok, let me make this clear to the readers out there, I did not intend this. It just happened on it's own, I'm still dumb, ok. Everybody got that", said Poor Man, "You guys do that!".
"WE CAN DO IT!", shouted Sharky.
"You", corrected Elephant
"I CAN DO IT!", shouted Sharky.
"You are a fish!", shouted Poor Man.
"I AM A SHARK!".
"Go get them tiger!".
Sharky then came out of the room shouting, "I'M NOT A TIGER I'M A SHARK!".
Poor Man then relaxed on his brick. "Got that taken care of", said Poor Man, "Oh Shoot. SHARKY, COME BACK! IT'S NIGHT TIME, THE...".
Poor Man then heard Sharky screaming from outside. "The, owls are out", mumbled Poor Man.
"STOP PLAYING WITH YOUR DOLLS POOR MAN!".
"YOU PUT DOWN THE LIQUOR BOTTLE DAD!", shouted Poor Man, "I love family reunions".
Poor Man then fell of his brick. "Ow! I'm going to have to eat around that".
Morning rose, and Sharky crawled inside the room all torn up. "OW! What are those, owls or phoenixes?", moaned Sharky.
"I think they're owls", replied Elephant.
"Where's Poor Man?", asked Sharky.
"He isn't eating the pumpkins right?", asked Sharky.
"I don't know, why?".
"I think I might've done something I will regret", confessed Sharky.
Downstairs, Poor Man watched in envy, poking the brick with his fork, watching his dad scarf down on some big old pumpkin pie. "Can I have a bite?", asked Poor Man.
"No it's mine!".
"Well, can I at least have salt on my brick?", asked Poor Man.
"Salt is for wimps Poor Man", said Poor Daddy, "Speaking of which, the pie tastes a bit funny, can you pass the salt?".
"Sure wimp", said Poor Man.
"Nothing Dad", mumbled Poor Man, "I wonder how Sharky's doing?".
"Son, if you keep talking about your dolls I'm going to check you into an insane asylum", said Poor Daddy.
Poor Man poked his brick, then said, "You know what, I'm not hungry, I'm going to go explore the town".
Poor Man then left the house. "Surely there must be somewhere here who will appreciate me".
Meanwhile, Sharky and Elephant are working around the crops. "Thanks for helping me Elephant, I really got myself into a bundle".
"No problem, I like bundles!", cheered Elephant, "Oh, Hello".
"No behind you", said Elephant, "He's trying to talk to you".
Sharky turned around to see a crow. "Hey you! Get out of the crops!".
The crow ignored him and started chewing his top fin. "Ow! Ow! OW! GET OFF OF ME CROW!".
"What should I do Sharky?".
"Ok, I better go pick the corn now".
"NO! GO GRAB A RAKE!", ordered Sharky, "QUICKLY! THE CROWS ARE IN THE CORN! THE CROWS ARE IN THE CORN!".
Elephant ran in the shed and grabbed a rake. "I got a rake".
Elephant then just stood there. "Can you beat the crow?".
"That'll be rude Sharky", said Elephant, "Wouldn't that hurt him!".
Elephant swung the rake, but it just kept hitting Sharky. "STOP SWINGING THE RAKE!".
"Wow, wishy washy aren't we", said Elephant, "You know, you need to treat me with more respect".
The crow then picked off a bundle of Sharky's fiber, and flew away. "Ow! I hope that grows back!", moaned Sharky.
"I'm sowwy Sharky", said Elephant.
Sharky then picked up the rake and said, "Oh, you will be".
Sharky then chased Elephant all the way around the field. Meanwhile, Poor Man went to the market. "Hello, it's me Poor Man! I'm back baby!".
The entire crowd then froze, recognizing the name. A man ran away and a baby started crying. "C'mon, remember Poor Man. You know, I grew up here. I knew all of you!", said Poor Man, "Hey, Steve, remember me, I saved you from falling into that well".
"You pushed me in the well", corrected Steve, "And when your dog saved me, you pushed me again".
"Ah ha ha good times", said Poor Man, "Maria, we went to prom".
"You never said you were home schooled at the time", replied Maria, "And you still haven't paid me for going with you".
"Ah, you joker!", said Poor Man, "Who wants to play poker!".
