An answer to {User:Beholden}'s short story
Hey, Rhymer of the Rotted Rainbow did you hear what happened?"

"What? To whom?"

"To Beholden .

"No. What happened? Is he alright?" Rhymer sounded frantic.

"Well, you know that Muppet song? The Mahna Mahna one?"

"Yeah," answered Rhymer. "It's that one that once you hear it AGAIN, it gets stuck in your head and won't go away. It's one of those horrendous earworm songs."

"Well, I guess he ran across it on FaceBook, and instead of (intelligently) scrolling on by it, he ... CLICKED ON IT!"

"Oh no!!!"

"What happened?"

"Someone said they saw him using his hands like puppets and he just kept repeating the whole sketch. They said he was screaming 'Mahna Mahna' and running down the road last time they saw him."

"That's terrible!"

"it gets worse!"

"Oh dear."

"Well, the boss said someone called the paramedics. And those little white men in their little white coats are coming to take him away! Hahah - to the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time!"

Rhymer clapped his hands to his ears. "Oh no, You did NOT just say that!!!"

"What?" asked Fyninstein in all innocence.

"No, no, no, NO!" moaned Rhymer, shaking his head from side to side.

"Yeah," continued Fyn, I guess they are taking him to that place out in the boondocks. I thinks it is out by the acquarioum, you know, the new one with all the baby shark...."
