I’m afraid it’s not nonsense,” Genghis said, shaking his turbaned head and continuing his story. “As I was saying before the little girl interrupted me, the baby didn’t dash off with the other orphans. She just sat there like a sack of flour. So I walked over to her and gave her a kick to get her moving.””Excellent idea!” Nero said. “What a wonderful story this is! And then what happened?””Well, at first it seemed like I’d kicked a big hole in the baby,” Genghis said, his eyes shining, “which seemed lucky, because Sunny was a terrible athlete and it would have been a blessing to put her out of her misery.”Nero clapped his hands. “I know just what you mean, Genghis,” he said. “She’s a terrible secretary as well.””But she did all that stapling,” Mr. Remora protested. “Shut up and let the coach finish his story,” Nero said.”But when I looked down,” Genghis continued, “I saw that I hadn’t kicked a hole in a baby. I’d kicked a hole in a bag of flour! I’d been tricked!””That’s terrible!” Nero cried.
