I don't know what to say right now. I guess I'll go straight to the shout outs. hullabaloo22 and Imogene both commented since my last post, and are both really awesome people. You should read their stories. Some other awesome people are Beany and Christy R. They were awesome enough to enter into my Absurd Newspaper Contest, and immediately got me to be their fans. Be like them. Write an absurd article. Well, that's all I really have to say. Enjoy the story, and feel free to be brutally honest!

"What are atoms made of?" Billy asked in a hopeful voice.

He had acquired the "Balooga of Great Knowledge" specifically to ask that question.

The Balooga of Great Knowledge was a major artefact that grants each and every individual the ultimate answer to one question. People for years have been searching fo that thing, people have died looking for it, and many many people wanted to find it to charge people to ask questions. Billy was digging holes in the school's sand pit and found it.

Instead of asking what the question of life, the universe, and everything (the answer is 42. We just need the question), Billy asked that fateful question. You may think that you can just ask Google or a teacher, but the Balooga could read his mind that he wanted to know the very smallest things that atoms are made of. If you look it up on google, it says that atoms are made up of protons which are made up of quarks which are made up of protons which are made out of quarks... And so on. Google is obviously wrong.

The Balooga thought for a second. Now, don't be confused. It is not a beluga. Belugas are actual living things. The Balooga is a carving made up of the rarest element in the universe. The element is unknown to mankind.

Being a Balooga, the knower of all things, it answered, "Atoms are made up of a thing we like to call Hiblajoobobbles. They are about the size of an ant, being the smallest thing possible. No go out and tell that to everyone."

As you can see, the Balooga has a cruel sense of humour. Never trust anyone or anything, no matter how qualified they might be?

What even is this story?
