This is another Twitter tale that has to be read to be disbelieved. Enjoy!
Zeke the Imp didn't listen to warnings and slid the wrong way down a long rainbow. He ended up with rainbow-coloured splinters in his butt.
To Zeke's outrage, no-one sympathised with him & he was left to sulkily sip his healing jellybean-juice tea in silence.
Zeke was also put on a course of antibiotics flavoured w/ hundreds-&-thousands. They crunched w/ the jellybean tea taste. Still no sympathy.
Zeke bought sympathy-inducing liquorice all-sorts from a backyard dealer. But the only thing they induced was a vomit. Then he got sympathy.
But the true piece de resistance of this tale is the brilliant Hope Denney's superb GIF response, which says it all. (For non-GIF-users, a gif is a short video often only a few seconds long, which loops repeatedly). Click here to view it for yourselves - it's very worth the extra click.
As an aside, all three of Zeke's 'confectionary medications' were especially chosen - partly because of their bright colours, but also because I don't like them.
Don't ask me about the inspiration for these little pieces of whacky story-telling. In this case, I simply enjoyed the bizarreness of something as magical-sounding as rainbow travel having rules, and of imagining the havoc that could be created by sliding down a rainbow the wrong way.
