  • He built his house out of barbecued meats.

  • He ran marathons on strips of bacon.

  • He pole vaulted over mounds of hash browns.

  • The (literally) short order cook used both arms to flip the pancake with the spatula. "Order up!" he said as the wait staff looked down on his tiny size. But his luck changed when

  • Strawberrry Shortcake took over management. She promoted Shorty to Chef d'Cuisine & replaced 'oversized' kitchen appliances with an Easybake oven. When Food critic Longhorn Broyles

  • Found out about this, she made a case for firing Shorty. Steak Man came on board and greater anarchy ensued at the Food Channel. Detective Manatee and his sea monkeys were called.

  • But by the time they got there, Shorty and his wheelchair were on the next plane to Bolivia. Shorty smiled. He was sure that would be the last place Manatee would look for him.

  • Sure Bolivia is a great place to hide. Who knows anything about it? Who even knows where it is? Hopefully the pilot. He finally got there. He was pretty sure nobody had followed

  • him, and as he walked out of the bolivian airport, he caught a taxi to the apartment. Once there, he peeked under the bed and saw the rifle where the note said it would be. He took

  • a shower, like the note said, he slipped, like the note said. He processed cheese, like the note said. He did everything, like the note said. What was the note trying to tell him?

    It has been brought to my attention that my acronym for FIND UNDERSTANDING, FU is not universally understood to represent my intended meaning. Furthermore, it has been pointed out that it's perceived meaning would most likely be understood to be a reference to Doctor Fu Manchu. I submit these notes as a somewhat explanation and take full credit for all the ambiguity in my previous, present, and future posts; intended or not.

    To clarify: None of the notes I have included should be understood to be the note mentioned this Folding Story. I know nothing about how to process cheese.
