9. The Boston Tea Party

Pumpkin and Recycler were sitting together in the computer lab.

"Three pages on the Boston Tea Party!" Recycler was close to freaking out. "Just how am I supposed to write thee pages about only the Boston Tea Party?"

"It's easy to narrow it down," said Pumpkin.

"How?"

"Just one word: font size!"

Recycler frowned. "Just two words: nimrod."

"Observe, Recycler, as I reveal the transformative power of fonts! Cheesefiend said we had to type these using a 14-point font, right? Well, both of these are 14-point fonts!"

The Boston Tea Party, which took place on December 16, 1773, was a very significant event in United States history.

Recycler stuttered. "It--it's a miracle!"

"Amen, brother!" said Pumpkin.

Pumpkin began typing, and also looked on as Recycler typed. Finally, he spoke up. "Recycler, you're never going to make it to three pages like that!"

"What do you mean, 'like that?'"

"You can't just write, 'The colonists were mad at England for taxing their tea!'" Pumpkin yelled. "That's too short! You've got to stretch it out!"

Pumpkin jumped into Recycler's chair.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

To say the colonists were mad at England for taxing their tea was completely understating the matter. They were beyond mad. Way beyond mad. They were angry, irate, miffed, peeved, mad, furious, perturbed, enraged, ticked off, sore, chafed, cross, huffy, incensed, and overall splenetic.

"Splenetic?" asked Recycler.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Or, to put it another way...

____________________________________________________________________________

"I still don't think I'm going to expand this to three pages," said Recycler.

"Oh, Recycler," said Pumpkin, "you're too worried about content! Just stick in some random words! Ms. Cheesefiend has to read so many papers, she won't even notice!" He showed Recycler his.

_________________________________________________________________________

And then, under cover of darkness, the colonists threw out countless boxes of tea for two and two for tea, me for you and you for me, tea for two for two and me alone in the depths of Boston Harbor.

Recycler wasn't so impressed this time. "Dude, aren't those song lyrics?"

Pumpkin wasn't convinced. "Trust me, she'll just blip right by it."

Eventually, Recycler left the computer lab. Five minutes later, Cheese replaced him. "How goes the social studies report, Pumpkin?"

"You ever heard of Doctor Phil?" Pumpkin replied.

When King George III found out about the Boston Tea Party, he flew into a rage. "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-

RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-

RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-

RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-

RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGHHH!!!" he screamed.

Pumpkin smiled. "Call me Doctor Filler!"

Cheese rolled his eyes.

Finally, it was time for Ms. Cheesefiend to read all the papers.
