The forest was shrinking daily but the trees kept voting for the axe as its handle was made of wood and they thought it was one of them.

Theres a statue of Ernie in my home town. I think you'll find that, sadly, he passed away some time ago.

Perhaps he should investigate, to see whether there is a business case to establish an Udon business specialising in short planks.

Yes an OOPS ! is warranted as Ernie passed away in 1999, a small factual mistake but as they have now all passed away only KB warriors seem to find glee in being equally silly .
