Rhinos hate paper straws

by ME SWINGLE | Score: 5300

The air turns black all around, the mist of some sort of weird gas is filling the room. As I wade my way through the mist I can see something faintly in the distance. It looks to be some sort of safari animal. A hippo maybe? As I edged closer I could see a rhino drinking from a mcdonalds cup and it seemed really upset about something. I approached with caution to see if it was okay. 
"Hello mr rhino are you okay?" I said.
"No im not okay" Replied the rhino "I am so upset with these bloody paper straws!" 

I see how upset this made the rhino so I ran to tesco to see what type of metal straws I could buy the sad rhino. Randomly a man ran up to me in the middle of tesco and handed me a package! I said to the DPD man "Whats this for?" He said that it wasnt anything special just a pack of paper straws.

I left the package at Tescos and head to the general merchandising isle. I found this really cute tiger print metal straw and went to the self service. Working on the tills I noticed a zealous barbarian, I ignored her she was smelly. 

On my way back to the Rhino I realised that there was an air conditioner in the boot of my car! Maybe I could use this to make the gas in my bedroom disappear! I arrived at the Rhino's home and presented the metal tiger print straw!


The Rhino smacked the metal straw out of my hand and said I was an abomination! They then left me all alone in the middle of a safari! I looked at the ground and see a pack of cards, I figured maybe I could play solitaire until I figured out how to get home. I looked in the pack and there was only one singular card; the ace of hearts. 
I discarded the ace of hearts to the floor, I heard weird moans and groans coming from the west. I picked up the metal straw and headed towards the sounds. I walked 5 miles in a westerly direction until I came across this old airport hanger. Inside there was this artistic laboratory technician painting a beautiful watercolour painting!  I said "Hey hun xoxoxxox" I then laughed uncontrollably
