Derek Dilbert Dool didn’t know Norway from the Milky Way, but that wasn’t going to stop him.
It was Sunday morning. His stomach was grumbling. Derek’s bodily functions were often quite loud, but this was NEXT LEVEL STUFF. He hadn’t eaten breakfast or dinner. And usually he pigged out whenever possible. But this was all part of his plan to take advantage of the entire country of Norway. So, MAKE WAY!
Ruttsmell was holding a special Norwegian- themed event in the Shopping Centre’s tired old food court. There was fake snow, stinky cheeses and red, white and blue ags everywhere. The banner said, ‘G’day, Norway!’ The whole Ruttsmell community had the opportunity to welcome some of Norway’s high achieving youngsters to town. But Derek saw it as an opportunity to prove himself. That was the thing with Derek, PURE AWESOME pumped through his veins. He could feel it! But no one else seemed to notice. Which meant Derek was always DESPERATE to prove he was SUPERCOOL! In fact, he’d do anything.
Which brings us back to the land of the midnight sun, Norway. Apparently Ruttsmell had a sister city there. Derek hadn’t bothered to learn the name of it, of course, but what he had learnt was that because of the ‘G’day, Norway!’ event there was going to be a MEATBALL EATING COMPETITION. The winner was sure to win the hearts of both countries. Derek planned to shovel in meatball after meatball till he was the shape of one. They would have to roll him outta there. This was Derek’s chance to nally claim the title of COOLEST KID IN THE UNIVERSE!
