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!".
Poor Man then came flying out of the store. "C'mon, don't be hasty, I don't cheat anymore! I'll only cheat in Blackjack!".
A bunch of vegetables then came flying at him. "Aw, thanks, but I do live in a farm, I got plenty of food there".
A spoiled turnip then came and hit Poor Man right in the face. "Oh Spoiled Turnips!", cried Poor Man.
A cart then came and hit a mud puddle, and the mud came all over Poor Man. "Forget it!", shouted Poor Man, "I'm done!".
Poor Man then left sadly, but in the deepest part of his ear, he heard everyone in the market place cheering and partying. Poor Man sat at home and started packing his bags. "Stupid me", mumbled Poor Man, "My fault for thinking I had a loving family or appreciative friends".
Elephant then came in the room, carrying Sharky. "Fine Poor Man, you want to hear it, I'll say it!", cried Sharky, "I give up! You win! I can not handle this place, I got mauled by owls, I got ripped apart by a crow, and I have a splinter on my fin! I WANT TO GO HOME!".
"Don't worry, we're going", assured Poor Man, "Effective Immediately. I just bought a ticket home. At least there I have my pets who love me".
Meanwhile, at his house, Mele and Chomper invited all of their guinea pig and dog friends to come party. On the wall, there was a banner that said "No Poor Man!".
Back at the country, Poor Man, Sharky, and Elephant (In stuffed animal form) was at the downstairs lobby. "Well, dad, I'm leaving".
"What you don't appreciate your origins!?".
"No, my origins don't appreciate me!", shouted Poor Man, "I'm unwanted, even by my own father! And I'm going to leave now, while I got some friends with me".
Poor Daddy then started cracking up, "What, seriously, who's going to want to be around you, you're stuffed animals!?".
"They're alive dad!".
Poor Daddy then laughed and snatched Sharky and Elephant. "Hello, you gonna say something to me?".
Elephant, staying in character, said nothing. Poor Daddy then flung the two to the ground and started kicking them. "Look son, nobody likes you! That's fact, and that's all your life is for, so everyone can laugh at your pathetic life, that's why I never likes you! You're an embarrassment to my name!".
Sharky finally had enough. He stood up and said, "No! You're an embarrassment to his name!".
Poor Daddy then froze, looked and Sharky, then said, "Did that shark just talk?".
Elephant then stood up and said, "You better be sowwy! Because you're never going to insult Poor Man again! He has more of a life then making you laugh! He has a loving family, and that's us!".
Poor Daddy then laughed, and said, "Oh, what are you going to do little Shark. You gonna eat me with your felt teeth? And I'm talking to a stuffed animal, I really need to put down the liquor bottle".
"May I?", asked Sharky.
"You may", replied Elephant.
Sharky the leaped up on Poor Daddy and started mauling him. "I might have to get a later flight time, but it's all worth it", said Poor Man.
So, after Sharky angrily did things unimaginable to Poor Daddy, the three got off the plane and drove home. "Thanks guys, you mean a lot to me", said Poor Man, "And it's good to be home and take a break".
Poor Man opened the door, to find all his friends (Plus Chicken, Kid, and The Zebra Gangsters) in his house.
"SUPRISE!", they all shouted.
"Hey, what's all this for?", asked Poor Man.
"We got invited to Mele and Chomper's party, but everyone left", said Kid.
"Don't listen to him, we wanted to greet you buddy. It wasn't the same without you", explained Rabbit King.
"Hold up, so what I'm saying is, you appreciate me?".
"Ninety Nine Precent!", shouted Chicken, "And One Precent wanting to destroy your rotten carcass once and for all, but that's small statistics".
"Yea, who else are we going to rob?", asked the chief, "I guess a bank, but that's no fun. We do have a lot of stuff, but what's the point in mugging ourselves right?".
"Thanks guys, looks like I have a family after all", said Poor Man, "A real family. PARTY!".
The house was a mad house, as they partied all day. He's glad to be out of the country, and Sharky's happy that the doesn't have to deal with anymore crows.
Meanwhile, in a deep, dark cave in the other side of the island, the same crow who attacked Sharky came. "Ah, bird of darkness and death, did you bring a piece of the king of the ocean?".
The crow then gave the figure a piece of Sharky's hair, and the figure put the hair in a tube. In light it's revealed to be The Masked Shadow. "Come, rise!", shouted The Masked Shadow, "BRING EVIL TO THEIR WORLD! MWA HA HA HA HA HA!".
