Oomphing a Classic

One day Mr 👓 fell down into a well. He cried piteously for hours as Friedrich Kork tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided Mr 👓 was old, and well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the him.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, Mr 👓 realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, Friedrich Kork finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, Mr 👓 was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

As Friedrich Kork’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of Mr 👓, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as Mr 👓 stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!
