The turtle walked slowly and calmly, at it’s own pace, on the treadmill. It wasn’t really here to lose weight, just to shed some stress and to keep its heart healthy. It started to walk faster as the song “Banana Phone” began to play on it’s MP3 player.
“Ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring banana phone!” The turtle cried, trotting along faster and faster now. “I've got this feeling, so appealing,
for us to get together and sing. Sing!” He sang, grinning.
He pumped his short little legs and sucked in air, his eyes shining.
“It grows in bunches, I've got my hunches,
It's the best! Beats the rest!
Cellular, modular, interactivodular!”
The turtle ran so fast that the world became a blur and the magical treadmill couldn’t take it anymore. It let out a long sigh then a small popping noise announced its death, as well as the billowing smoke.
The turtle flew off the treadmill and spread his arms and legs out, singing as loud as he could as he fleeeew!
“Don't need quarters, don't need dimes,
To call a friend of mine!” He cried, spinning in the air. The turtle landed on the handles of a stationary bike and stood on his hind legs, reaching his arms high up in the air.
“Don't need computer or TV,
To have a real good time!”
Mr. Turtle grabbed a mike out of thin air and spun around in circles. A cat on the bike next to him stared as he sang, “I'll call for pizza. I'll call my cat!”
The cat snickered and sang along. “I'll call the white house, have a chat!”
The turtle nodded enthusiastically. A pizza guy who just happened to look suspiciously like the President of the United States strolled into the gym and waved at the turtle and the cat. “I'll place a call around the world, operator get me Beijing-jing-jing-jing!” He sang, sitting a stack of pizza’s down.
Now a kangaraff, a diabetic pelican and a purple lion began to sing along too. “Ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring,
Banana phone!” They chorused.
A baby chimp smiled and made funny little sounds.
The lion and a wilder beast sang together,
“Ying yang ying yang ying yang ying yonana phoooone!!”

And EVERYONE in the gym joined along for the end.

“It's a real live mama and papa phone,
a brother and sister and a dogaphone,
a grandpa phone and a grammophone too! Oh yeah!
My cellular, bananular phone!”

Then they all grew quiet to allow the turtle to sing the end. He cleared his throat, licked his lips, and sang as loud as ever,

“Banana phone, ring ring ring!”
(It's a phone with a peel!) The baby chimp added.
“Banana phone, ring ring ring!”
(Now you can have your phone and eat it too!) The chimp added.
“Banana phone, ring ring ring!”
(This song drives me bananas!) Said the Pizza Guy.
“Banana phone, ring ring ring!”

The turtle, now finished, drew in a shuddering breath and fell over.
