The History of Thoof

Once upon a time there was a boy named Ian. He was a scrawney little fella who was picked on quite frequently in grade school. He had a spech problem. Ian was often the butt of jokes in school and the school bully stole his lunch money daily. Sadly, Ian had learned to deal with this teasing because to him it was just a way of life. As the years went by Ian became engrossed in his school work. He studied foreign affairs, current events, and read every piece of information he could get his hands on. This only gave his enemies more ammunition because now he was a smartie with a speech problem. One day as he walked home from school, Ian was approached by the bully who had stolen his lunch money daily for the past four years. He began to tease and ridicule Ian. Ian kept walking trying to avoid eye contact with the bruit. The bully jumped in front of Ian and knocked his books out of his hand. Ian was angered to no end. He quickly reacted by kicking that bully right in the knee. The bully hit the ground and Ian quickly kicked him square in the mouth. Ian had never had a reaction like this to ricicule. He'd been picked on his entire life and it felt good to release all of this frustration he had pinned up inside of him! The bully stood up and began to cry. There were tears running down his cheeks and blood running out of his mouth. He yelled at Ian, "You knocked out my Thoof". Ian began to laugh hysterically at the bully!
"I knocked out your what?", Ian asked the bully.
"My Thoof" he repeated.
Ian turned his back on the bully and laughed because for many years he'd been made fun of because he couldn't speak correctly and now that bully had the tables turned on him.
