We all know Poor Man's catchphrase... "Oh Spoiled Turnips".
But, did we know that this saying, almost destroyed the world!? You got that from the summary? Well... go and read this anyway!
So, Poor Man was eating his waffles, when he said, "Hey, I need to eat healthy for once, I know, I can eat some turnips!".
But, when he pulled them out of the fridge, he noticed they were rotten. "Oh, spoiled turnips", said Poor man gloomily, but then he lit up, "Oh Spoiled Turnips, hey, I rather like that, Oh Spoiled Turnips! Oooh, turnips".
So, we're bakc to the present day as Poor Man is telling his story, "And that's how the saying came to be", explianed Poor Man, "And how I got my first food poisoning".
"We don't care about your spoiled turnips!", shouted Rabbit King, "You said we were here to play black jack!".
"I even bought snacks to bet with", said Panda King.
"And I got a gun to shoot the dealer if he does it wrong", said Rabbit King.
"You know they don't really do that in Vegas, right?", asked Snake King.
"Yea", answered Rabbit King.
"Look, it isn't about blackjack!", shouted Poor Man.
"Yea, it is", replied Snake King.
"You quiet", said Poor Man, "I want to declare today, Oh Spoiled Turnips day".
"That's the best name you can come up with?", asked Rabbit King.
"Can't you guys just shut up for 5 seconds!", shouted Poor Man, "So anyway, today we can make turnip meals and do a whole festival and".
"5 seconds are up", noted Snake King.
"SHUT UP!", screamed Poor Man, "Fine! Maybe Chicken will cooroperate!".
So, as Poor Man stormed off mumbling some extreme language to himself, Rabbit King said, "Oh, looks like we really upset him... oh well, Snake King, can you deal?'.
Snake King then took the gun from Rabbit King and said, "Nea, I'm good".
Meanwhile, at Chicken's lair, he was brainstorming his next evil plan. "Let's see, my corn army popped, my banana army peeled, what vegitable can conquer Power Island?".
Just then someone rang his doorbell. "Oh great, those stupid salesmen, where's that laser".
But, the person kept ringing the doorbell, so he gave up and just opened the door, suprised to find Poor Man. "Poor Man!", shouted Chicken, "You're a salesman now?".
"No, I'm here to see if you will promote Oh Spoiled Turnips day", announced Poor Man, "After my so called friends turned me down!".
"No, I don't care about your spoiled turnips, wait a minute, turnips, that's it!", shouted Chicken, "Come in, I want to hear more about your spoiled turnips".
"Well, they cause major food poisoning", explained Poor Man as they walked inside.
So, Chicken made him some coffee and sat down with a notepad and a pencil. "So, as you were saying, if I was to make an army of turnips, not that I'm going to or anything, but what would make it so powerful?".
"Well, turnips have the strength of corn, yet it doens't pop, and it also has the nimbleness of bananas, and it doens't peel so easily", explained Poor Man, "And it only takes one drop of chemical X to make it artificially intelligent and it will follow whatever first order it has, but you problably don't want to hear about that, let me tell you how this saying first begun".
"No, I'm good", denied Chicken, "And thank you, I will be sure that turnips are, uh, respected by all".
"Thank you Chicken", said Poor Man, "You know, this a big lair, do you know the way out".
"Nea", said Chicken as he pushed a button ,then Poor Man fell down a trap door and fell outside.
"Oh, and if you see any salesmen on thier way over here, scare them off!", called out Chicken.
Poor Man woke up the next morning excited, thinking he woke up to a new holiday, all about his spoiled turnips! He was so excited, he walked down to town and sang a song
It's Spoiled Turnips Day
Oh Spoiled Turnips Day
This day isn't spoiled
Because it's tin foiled
It's Spoiled Turnips Day
Oh Spoiled Turnips Day
Hip Hip hoo ray!
Hip Hip hoo ray
Oh Spoiled Turnips Day
The crowd was staring at him as he was singing, so he thought they were interested, so he continued.
Come join our crowd
Come join our show
Unlike how turnips are grown
This day isn't low
It's Spoiled Turnips Day
Oh Spoiled Turnips Day
The crowd is now throwing tomatoes at him. "Aw, they love me so much they're giving me a free salad! Oh, it's rotten tomatoes, guys, it's supposed to be spoiled turnips".
Just then someone threw a turnip at him, and knocked him in a bush. "Ow, watch where you throw that, you could shut someone up with that", warned Poor Man.
But suddenly, the ground started shaking. Then, the bush rose, and Poor Man realized he wasn't on a bush, he was on a giant turnip. A giant turnip just rose from the ground, then came another, each one about the size of a 2 story house. Soon, there was a whole army of giant turnips. Then, using their roots for legs, they started walking towards their master, Chicken. "Now, turnips, you must follow my every order! Take over the world and destroy ho ever is in my way!", ordered Chicken, "This is so awesome, I never loved vegitables more!".
"You traitor!", shouted Poor Man from atop a turnip, "You said Spoiled Turnips day, not Spoiled Turnip Island!".
"No, I said turnips will be respected by everyone! Well, they're not insulting them are they?", asked Chicken, "Oh Spoiled Turnips is right!".
Poor Man had it. "Ok, you can betray me, you can use my innocent idea and catchphrase for evil, but never, and I mean never, use my catchphrase, and never squared! Mess with Spoiled Turnips Day!".
Poor Man then hopped off the turnip, wiped some mud on his face and charged at Chicken's army with full speed.
Meanwhile, Mele and Chomper were cleaning the house, but they noticed a faint scream, so they lifted a pillow and set it on the floor, then Poor man came out of the window and landed on the pillows. He got up and said, "Thanks guys, man, I need to think before I charge at an army of giant turnips, those vegitables can flip someone off good... then they threw me".
Mele and Chomper, assuming Poor Man is going crazy again, walks away. So, he went to the fridge, thinking maybe some brain food will pep him up. But, all he found was one last piece of apple pie. So, he ate the piece of pie, not knowing that it is too old. After he ate it, he shouted, "Ew! It's rotten? Why did I eat the whole thing after I took the first bite? Ew! Now what am I going to... hey, I got an idea".
So, Poor Man grabbed a bunch of spoiled turnips from the fridge and put them in one duffel bag, and set out to fight turnips with turnips. Meanwhile, Rabbit King, Snake King, and Panda King are trying to stop Chicken. Panda King tried eating one turnip, but that turnip then ate Panda King whole. After the turnip burped, he hear Panda King, from the turnip's stomach, saying, "Ew! I'm surrounded by spoiled turnips insides! With no seasoning, but oh well, I like my food aged".
Snake King tried using his long body to tie a bunch of turnips together, but instead, they grabbed Snake King and twisted him into a pretzel. Rabbit King was doing a rather good job, getting from place to place by hopping on the tops of the turnips, but, he slipped on one of them and fell to the ground, when a turnip took him and tossed him right infront of Chicken, when Chicken stepped on his head and put a laser against his forehead. "I have dreamed of this moment for my whole life!", shouted Chicken, "Now I get to terminate Rabbit King, this is going to be awesome!".
Just then, a blob of messy turnip went right into Chicken's head. "Ew, what is this... Oh, it's spoiled turnips, ew!".
(Cliffnote: There's a lot of 'ew's in this episode isnt' there?)
Then, Poor Man came and threw a spoiled turnip at a giant turnip, and when it splattered, so did the giant turnip, and Panda King, with his mouth full, is free. "Aw, the fiesta is over", groaned Panda King, "Oh well, I can suck the flavor out of the skin".
Poor Man then untied Snake and the two are now throwing spoiled turnips at the giant turnips. Then, Rabbit King started joining in, till all of the turnips are gone. "We did it!", cheered Poor Man.
"Yes, how did you come up with it?", asked Rabbit King.
"Oh, I found my inner peace", explained Poor Man, "My inner piece of pie".
Before Rabbit King could ask, Chicken shouted, "This isn't over yet! I saved a little chemical X in case of emergencies, and I'm going to drink it without testing it on another living being!".
"No! It's no telling what power it will have!", shouted Snake King and Rabbit King.
"Jynx you owe me a soda", noted Rabbit King.
Chicken started drinking the chemical X through a little test tube, and when he was done, he said, "Hm, a little salty, does anyone have a little applesider?".
Just then, Chicken started glowing, then he grew. "I can feel myself growing! I'm growing! You all look like litttle bitty ants!".
"Those are little bitty ants!", shouted Rabbit King, "You only grew 2 inches!".
"Oh, give it time, it might have a late reaction", explained Chicken, "Wait, I feel a little...".
Just then Chicken grew 100,000 feet, but his voice was all squeaky. "Wait, dang it, it's the air pressure, now I sound like Alvin the chipmunk, this kind of kills the mood doesn't it, oh well, I will crush you all!".
So, Chicken started stomping all over the place, but he keeps missing our heroes. "Come back here so I can squish you!", shouted Chicken, "Well, you can if you're into this sort of thing".
Poor man then started walking towards Chicken, but Rabbit King pulled him back. "No, it's not that, I got a plan, I started this and now I'm going to end this".
"Why, what do you have to do with all this".
"My Spoiled Turnips Day gave him this sinister plot", admitted Poor Man, "If it wasn't for my stupid catchphrase, this would've never happened. Now, trust me, I can stop him".
"But, we're a team".
"No we're not, you weren't there for me when I wanted to start something", nagged Poor Man.
"Oh, well, you tricked us!", replied Rabbit King, "But, if it helps, we're a team now, what do you want us to do now".
"Run, he's about to step on us", Poor Man answered smoothly.
But it's too late, Chicken stepped on them. "Ha ha, I got you now!", shouted Chicken, "Wow, I even made this voice awesome!".
But, when he lifted it, there was nothing but a hole, then he noticed a moving bump undergorund, then Rabbit King popped out from the ground, and he pulled Poor Man from the ground. "Man, you're heavier then you look", noted Rabbit King, "Now run Speedy Poorzaless!".
Poor man ran, luring Chicken right into the city. But, Poor Man tripped, so he started crawling towards shelter. Chicken lifted his foot, and stomped at Poor Man, but he was so determined to do so, he didn't think that he was right under the Empire Island Building, with one of the sharpest antennas in the world. "Owww!", cried Chicken, "No! The hole, I'm deflating! I'm shrinking!".
Soon, Chicken became his normal size, then Snake King put some handcuffs on him. "Take that Gallazilla".
Chicken just looked at him strangely. "What, it's a science joke, the scientific term for a chicken is galla galla".
"Dude, I'm an evill scientist and I didn't get that", said Chicken
"Well, just for that I'm not giving you a bail", replied Snake King, "Come on".
So, Rabbit King helped Poor Man up. "You did good", complimented Rabbit King.
"Thanks, I think I did good too", said Poor Man.
3 days later. Poor Man got an e-mail telling him to meet someone at the park, so when he came, he was suprised by Rabbit King, Snake King, and Panda King. "Suprise!", they shouted.
"Hey guys", greeted Poor Man.
"And, happy spoiled turnips day!", shouted Panda King.
"We made Spoiled Turnips day and official legal holiday in Power Island", joined in Rabbit King.
"Cool, thanks guys!", cheered Poor Man, "When is it?".
Snake King then roleld down a scroll and put on some reading glasses. "Oh Spoiled Turnips is officially, Febuary 30th".
Poor Man then stared at them blankly, then he shouted, "Wow! That's my birthday! Thanks!".
So, all of them hugged, but while they were hugging, Snake King whispered to Panda King, "He's not very smart is he?".
"Ugh, never eat spoiled turnips, I think I'm going to...", announced Panda King.
