The pesky unwanted hitch-hikers removed their helmets, revealing no less than The Gang Of Five! So THIS was where those little skellums had got to. Known far and wide for their itching skills, The Gang Of Five! had been banned from most civilised places after a number of exploits which had brought them global fame and notoriety… and now, here they were… on some sort of mission!
Suddenly, and quite literally Out Of The Blue, some opportunists saw a chance to leave the party and continue on their way. They had a mission to complete and the storks could not have flown through the Conference After Party at a better time! Who were these critters, these helmeted bandits??!!
The Saddle-billed storks were not amused. The International Conference on Fleas Issues (ICFI) had messed up their flight path – and being such big birds they were quite unable to turn and make it back to their nests in time. As a result, they decided to Bite The Bullet, and fly straight through the middle of the conference after party! This happened to suit certain fleas’ master-plan perfectly.
Some Saddle-billed storks are on their way to a new fishing spot that has recently opened, the fish are so fat and juicy that they had to make a special booking for 7.30pm. They’re also running a bit late (as usual), and now, something seems to be in the middle of their flight path! There seems to be an unusual number of fleas getting up to all sorts of nonsense.
Something itchy was going on… something so itchy that birds high up in the African sky (and completely minding their own business) started to itch.. something so itchy that fish off the Mozambique coast (who SAID later that they had been minding their own business) were asking it to stop! Something so itchy that everybody who was anybody had stopped doing whatever they were doing immediately, and were talking about it.. it was the ICFI – The International Conference on Flea Issues. They were having an after-party and were all patting each other on the back after the most successful one ever.
