Coach Goatham was standing in the change

  • Coach Goatham was standing in the change room doorway when he said "Has anyone seen my ball sack?" The teenage boys erupted into fits of laughter. Coach Goatham became upset

  • . His ball sack was special, sentimntal even, and it was missing. Coach Goatham was determined to put things right. He needed help and he knew just the man to talk to. His name was

  • Dr. Happy . Reggie was understandably shy about his beanball injury, but Dr. Happy wasn't from the Bush league & put him at ease with baseball banter right off the bat.

  • Dr Happy said "look son, you've only got one ball now but be patient, more will come". Then Dr Happy got to second base with Reggie's wife in the waiting room & was about to steal

  • chocolate chip cookies until officer crumb came on the scene. Mr. Happy became sad and sullen. Officer Crumb took one look at Mr. Happy and knew that

  • He wouldn't be helping if he decided to get to work. Officer Crumb sighed and took a long look at Mr. Happy. "Hey, listen- this sullen expression doesn't suit you. Let me offer-"

  • Why don't you produce some comics for our newsletter?" Mr. Happy agreed and used his job as the inspiration for it. His characters were fictitious but were based on dead people.

  • This proved to be a poor source material, as his target audience was aboriginal Australians. The offended Australians rose up to capture Mr. Happy, but he escaped by

  • jumping through the stained glass window behind him. As colored glass

  • shards embedded into his skin they twinkled in the light and for the first and last time in his life he felt radiant, beautiful, and as breathtaking as a rainbow.

    I love the cultural reference to the aboriginal Australians. Avoidance in naming the dead as a mark of respect is still practiced in many Australian aboriginal communities.
