Rainbow and Posie were always quite curious about one thing. And they had never had the chance to figure it out.
"What was it?", you ask?
"Yes, Posie,", said Elephant,"What is it that you are so curious about?"
"Well, Rainbow and I never really understood where underpants came from.", said Posie.
"You see," said Rainbow,"Posie and I, being cats, do not wear underpants. Nor do you, Elephant. Or Sea Otter, or anyone in the forest, except for Dee Dee, Neil and Hunter, and he wears Diapers!"
"Yes, I suppose that's true", said Elephant,"But then why are you curious?"
"Well, we were at the Beach and a underpants filled ship must have turned over or something."
"Really?", said Elephant,"What happened?"
"Well," said posie,"It was quite a sight to see. There were hundreds of pairs of underpants and there wer also many many people swimming."
Rainbow remembered it like it was yesterday.
"When did this happen?", asked Elephant.
"Well, yesterday", said Rainbow,"It was very strange, there were dozens upon dozens of people swimming in the ocean when the underpants came to shore. They were all covered in underpants."
"Yes!", said Posie,"There were small underpants, long underpants, spotted underpants, striped underpants, girl underpants, boy underpants, many different kinds of underpants. And all the people who were at the beach swam into them.
"Yes, it was something, there was one little kitten who managed to get all tangled up in a frilly underpant. Luckily the lifeguard was able to save her although the lifeguard came out covered in underpants.
"There were underpants everywhere."
"In the end", Rainbow said, "There were these dudes in a yellow truck which said 'underpants removal service' who came to collect the underpants.
"Well," said Elephant,"Why not call them and ask them where underpants come from?"
"That's a good idea," said Posie, who left to get her phone.
They called the number and the underpants collectors said they should go to wally's underpant factory and get a tour.
So they did.
They arrived at a building and even it was shaped like underpants. With two tall towers connected at the top with a big oval top, sort of like long underpants.
"Welcome to Wally's underpants factory, I'm wally!", said Wally.
"Thanks for hosting us, Wally", said Posie,"We met one of your friends and he said to call you if we wanted a tour."
"Indeed, let's go on the tour.
Well, the tour was fun. They learned how underpants were made, how fabric was sorted and chosen in all the colors, patterns and fabrics. They were going to the last part of the tour, the storage room. Here was an amazing sight.
As far as the eye could see , and as high as you might imagine, there were underpants. Stripey underpants, thick underpants, thin underpants, tight underpants and loose underpants.
And Elephant, well, he made a mistake. He was so surprised at the number of underpants that he jumped in surprise.
"*eeeemummm*", he said, which is his surprised noise.
When he jumped, he whammed into the forklift, and in doing so turned the forklift on 'high'.
The forklift was filled with underpants and went shooting forward until , shortly, it rammed into the wall holding the vastly huge tower of underpants.
The underpants went flying. Rainbow was covered in pink frilly underpants. Powise was covered in Boxer shorts and elephant was covered by all manner of cat patter underpants.
It was quite a sight, to see Rainbow, Posie and Elephant walk home with underpants all over them.
