It was a typical summer morning at Camp Kitchy-Kitchy-Yahoo, the pre-eminent summer camp for sassy pre-teens. That was until Harold 'Turbo Nerd' Jenkins - a bespectacled, retainer-wearing, calculator-carrying introvert - was hoisted up a flagpole by his underpants by the camp's resident tough-guy, Butch 'Abs for Days' McIntyre.
After an initial few moments of shared laughter at Harold's expense, the camp's wry sense of humor took a quantum leap. The heckling pre-teens decided that Harold's unfortunate predicament added a certain flair to the camp's aesthetics. It was unanimously voted: Turbo Nerd would serve double duty as the official camp flag until his inevitable descent. They affirmed their decision with the gravest solemnity and dignity that life-terrors between 12 and 14 could muster.
Call it schadenfreude or teenage arbitration, Harold's tenure atop the pole had stretched beyond the hollow laughter and into its third week. His underpants, now as stretched as the credibility of a politician's memoir, flew proudly against the wind. His disheveled appearance added an extra touch of realism to the otherwise charming summer camp.
Meanwhile, in the world outside the camp, Harold's worried parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins, had decided to wage legal war against the stick carryin', guitar slinging, "No Adults Allowed" summer camp. Armed with a lawyer whose main claim to fame was negotiating a peace treaty between two rival raccoon tribes, the Jenkins kicked off their improbable legal campaign.
The catch, however, was that the presiding judge on their case was none other than Judge Frederick 'The gavel' McIntyre, who had achieved his moniker due to his fondness of bashing the bench with undue fervor. Fickle fate being what it is, Judge McIntyre turned out to be the well-toned father of Butch McIntyre: the boxer-short-quaking fear of every pre-teen nerd's existence.
Back at Camp, the news of the impending court case was greeted with much applause and a standing ovation for Butch 'Abs for Days' McIntyre. Butch declared he would rally the campers in a 'Save Our Flag' campaign, inexplicably crafting a superhero mask from a nearby tortilla chip bag and sliding into his new role like a well-seasoned mascot.
The court case is currently in the second round of appeals as Judge Frederick 'The gavel' McIntyre dismissed the initial case in favor of arm-wrestling, lifting assertively the large gold gavel and declaring "Your motion to fight this in court, is closed."
As for Harold 'Turbo Nerd' Jenkins, the flagpole-dwelling dork, he’s just downloaded the complete 'Law for Dummies' collection on his Kindle (a laborious process given his vertical disposition). For the distressed nerd-flag, it's the perfect opportunity to study the court case he's unwittingly wrapped up in - underpants and all.
