There once was a bear named Max. He was a hopeless romantic who spent his days smelling flowers and eating bark off of trees for the cleanliness of his teeth. He would always try to find the perfect flower to give to one of his many potential mates.
Natasha the Big Brown Bear was the skankiest bear in all of The NeighborWood, also known as “The Wood.” She would climb trees and then eat the acorns out of their shells and then spit them at other bears. She was so annoying. This one time she spat an acorn shell on the mayor of The Wood, Mayor Hunstingson. She was kicked out of the city for three days and had to direct traffic from the neighboring city ForesTown to and fro. Traffic duty is pretty much the worst duty you could do in The Wood since everyone is an idiot and doesn’t know how to drive their cars.
Max found a Red Mistberry Flower growing in a ravine north of the NeighborWood Nuclear Factory. He thought it smelled so good that he picked it and decided to give it to Natasha as a gesture of affection. He thought since Natasha would be all alone on the Bearway Pass between NeighborWood and ForesTown, he could make his move.
It was an unfortunate misplacing of romantic intentions for Max. Natasha had the IQ of a baboon, and the brain of one, too. That’s why she’s so stupid. Because she isn’t a bear, she is a baboon in the body of a bear. Too bad for Max because she had a booty like DANGGGG!!!!! Natasha ate his Red Mistberry Flower and spat the seeds at him when he presented it to her.
All spat on, heartbroken, and no one to love, Max went back to his den made out of bricks. It was a nice den, but watch out if he wanted to fart because IT’S MADE OF BRICKS!!!!! You may not get it, but sure.
The next week, Max found a flower called the Junior Talap Wishmaker. It was the perfect type of flower to give to Allison the Green Bear. Why was she green? Because she is soooooo cool. That’s why! She’s like one of those chicks you see on BizarroBook who is friends with someone you know but sticks out like a sore thumb in their friends list. So, Allison the Green Bear was at the local record store Bear-cords, smelling the guitar tablature books. She liked the very minor temporary high the glue gave her. Max came in, holding the large flower between his teeth, trotting down the aisle in a triumphant fashion. Allison looked over to see Max presenting her with the flower. She smelled it, but it did not give her even the slightest amusement. Her swollen red eyes watered as the flowers pungent smell filled her sinuses. She stood up on two legs and sneezed right onto Max’s face. Max dropped the flower in astonishment and suddenly he was teleported back to his brick den. The Junior Talap Wishmaker would grant one wish to anyone who sneezed on the face of the person that had picked (aka murdered) the flower. In this case, Allison wished for Max to go away.
For two weeks, Max was again depressed and lacking in the macking. He searched high and low for the next flower that would really impress his new love, Calista the Model Bear. Calista spent most of her days at the NeighborWood Hidden Lake Resort, poolside, tanning in the moonlight. The moonlight tanning fad had become a mandated regiment by the bear modeling agency known as Bear-It-All, and was forcing all of their famous bear models to take part in the tanning procedure which consisted of placing a huge amplification telescope above the tanner and focus the beam onto them until they became glowing with moon radiation.
Max was able to catch a spaceship to the Moon and picked a Moonflower for Calista since she seemed to like the Moon and he thought if he got this rare and special Moonflower which you could be arrested for if you picked it because there’s only like three of them left, so it makes it even MORE romantic because he committed a crime to show his love and chicks fall over for that stuff like a domino in a hurricane.
Max was seen by the Moonflower Security Response Team and for the next three days he was in the middle of a Western-Sci-Fi-style laser gunfight and spaceship dogfight campaign to get the flower back to the Earth. Needless to say, and really the point I’m trying to make, is that Max did a lot to get this flower and it was a lot of effort.
After killing 67 members of the security team, they finally let him go. Max gained the nickname the Moonflower Assassin for his cunning flower picking skills and being able to elude all of the security around the illustrious Moonflower.
Max , dressed in his space fighter leather jacket, with 67 tally marks on his right shoulder and “Moonflower Assassin” written in capital letters across his back, journeyed up the mountain to the Hidden Lake Resort. Standing on two legs, he presented the Moonflower to Calista.
“Ugh, what is that? I don’t even LIKE flowers… harrumph!” Calista put the cucumbers back on her eyes and began to ignore Max again.
Max fell backward and the Moonflower, encased in its little forcefield blasted off towards the moon, to return to its nest.
Later next week, Max was escorted to the Emergency Sex Change Room. He had absolutely no luck with women so he decided he wanted to try being one so that he could learn how to make one like him.
He hated flowers forever.
