At the FoldingStory Meme bar, Det. Manatee

  • At the FoldingStory Meme bar, Det. Manatee and Agent Scarn were swapping strories. Big Lion was on the mike. Just then, Kool-Aid man burst in,"B’chugerroth is back in town!"

  • "Should we unleash Cthulu?" asked Scarn. Manatee said, "Nah, he's sore about not getting an invite." Big Lion crooned, "Yo, lemme eat B'Chug, I'm a different kind o' thug."

  • But when B'Chug showed up, the Hippo swallowed them all. "Now look at the fix you've gotten us into!", said Scarn. Manatee shrugged. He liked the moist hippo folds. Big Lion rapped

  • Hippo vogued back Timberlake-stylie: "Lions can play / in my river / but you know you got to be a pretty giver". B'Chug, Manatee and Citizen Scam crooned the chorus:

  • "Oh I just can't wait to be King!" But then Scar stopped the recording and said, "Listen, B'Chug, Manatee and Citizen Scam, are you trying to kill me? You're all flat. Flat as a

    Det. Manatee's past is shrouded in mystery - yet today we learn he once held a custodial job, perrhaps to help pay his tuition at Lions Detective Academy?

    Is this going on the FoldingStory.wikia.com website?

    We have a wikia?

    No, just a joke about the recurring threads that lurk here and there in various stories.

    I stumbled on the hippo story long after the (in)famous FoldingStory was completed. FoldingStory is a finely tuned subconscious sensor of the global internet Gestalt. We are all part of the experiment.
