Lawson contacts Lou Strickland to send all the fourth graders to Pleasure Island, and all the fourth graders end up getting a case of Donkeyitis.
In Lawson's bedroom, Lawson was feeling grumpy.
Lawson: Man! Those fourth graders are so stupid! They always get me and my friends into trouble with our teacher Miss Finster. Fourth graders are a bunch of lousy geeks! And besides, they're a**holes! I also hate Randall Weems, he's one of the fourth graders who snitches on me! His friend Menlo is a fourth grader and he's a partner to Randall! TJ and the Gang are the worst fourth graders ever! I wish their teacher Miss Grotke punishes them and gives them detention. But no, she never punishes them. Fourth graders are idiots! They're stupid! Including TJ, Vince, Spinelli, Gretchen, Mikey, Gus, Randall, Menlo, Geoffery, the Ashleys, Swinger Girl, Upside-Down Girl, Hustler Kid, the Diggers, Phil and more! What shall I do? I know, I will call Lou Strickland and ask him to take all the fourth graders to Pleasure Island. And besides, Pleasure Island is a cursed island with an amusement park located on it. It is accessed there by ferry. Once the fourth graders played in there too long, they will suffer a cursed disease which is called Donkeyitis! It means they will be turned to donkeys! Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha! I'm going to call Lou Strickland before I go to school!
Lawson picked up his phone to call Lou Strickland. In Lou Strickland's room, Lou Strickland heard his phone ringing, and he picked up his phone.
Lawson: Hello, Strickland!
Lou Strickland: Hello, Lawson! What's up?
Lawson: I want you to steal the bus from the bus station.
Lou Strickland: What bus?
Lawson: The big one. This is where all fourth graders of my school can go in. I want you to send all the fourth graders to Pleasure Island.
Lou Strickland: Did you say Pleasure Island? The one I watched on TV? The island from Disney's Pinocchio, where the boys get turned into donkeys?
Lawson: That's right!
Lou Strickland: Oh boy! I can't wait to do that!
Lawson: Drive the bus to Third Street School at 12: 30, use the intercom to call out to all the fourth graders to come to Pleasure Island.
Lou Strickland: Sure!
Lawson: Don't forget to send the Bro Characters to bring in some donkey crates on the boat so you can place donkeys in crates.
Lou Strickland: Of course.
Lawson: If a donkey brays, put the donkey in the crate. Donkeys will be sold to salt mines and circuses, and they'll be working in salt mines and circuses whether they like it or not. If a donkey talks, leave a donkey in the pen or you can sell a talking donkey to Mental People's Home, and Tina will have talking donkeys as pets! Hahahahahahahahahaha!
Lou Strickland: Great! This is going to be the best day ever!
Lawson: Yeah! This means 'Bye bye, fourth graders!' Hahahahahahahahaha!
Lou Strickland: Don't worry, Lawson! I'll get rid of them for you! And that stupid Miss Grotke will never ever see her fourth grade students again! And fourth graders will never come back as kids! Hahahahahaha! Bye, Lawson!
Lawson: Bye, Strickland!
Lawson put down the phone. Later at 12:30, Lou Strickland was driving a big bus and arrived at Third Street School. Then Lou Strickland got off the seat and stepped out of the bus and called through the microphone.
Lou Strickland: Attention, fourth graders of Third Street School, it gives me great pleasure to offer you a trip to Pleasure Island. Do you want to come? Yes! Come to my bus and take a ride to Pleasure Island!
Then all the fourth graders including Miss Grotke's students and Mrs Furley's students came out of Third Street School and all got in the bus.
TJ: Hey, Lou Strickland. Why are you taking us?
Lou Strickland: Pleasure Island!
Vince: That's a great place!
Spinelli: It's as good as the Great State Fair!
Gretchen: That's very nice of you!
Mikey: What a nice man!
Gus: Thanks for giving us the offer!
Lou Strickland: Okay, you six! Find some seats, will you?
So TJ and the Gang did as Lou Strickland said.
Lou Strickland: Now! Pleasure Island! Here we go!
So Lou Strickland drove off to Pleasure Island. Lawson, Gelman, Mundy and Skeens popped up from behind the bushes.
Lawson: Bye bye, fourth graders! Enjoy your trip to Pleasure Island! Hahahahaha!
Gelman: No more Gus Griswald! He and the others will become donkeys! Hahahahaha!
Lawson: Hee-haw! Hee-haw!
Mundy: TJ and the Gang will never bother us ever again!
Skeens: Yeah, Principal Prickly won't be able to help the fourth graders nor our teacher Miss Finster.
Lawson: Let's go to the AV Kid and watch South Park! No fourth graders will bother us ever again!
So Lawson, Gelman, Mundy and Skeens went inside Third Street School to watch South Park. Later, Lou Strickland drove into the ferry, and then the ferry sailed off to Pleasure Island. Later, the ferry arrived at Pleasure Island.
Lou Strickland: Okay, kids! Your destination is here! Get off the seats! Twister Bro and Curve Bro, open the gates!
Twister Bro: Okay, Strickland!
Curve Bro: We'll do it for you!
So Twister Bro and Curve Bro walked off the ferry and then they opened the gates.
Lou Strickland: Good luck, fourth graders! Enjoy your day!
So the fourth graders got off the bus and they started to have fun in Pleasure Island. They enjoyed riding on the carousel, roller-coasters, playing sideshows and going on rides.
Food Barker: Right here, boys and girls! Right here. Get your cake, pie, dill pickles and ice cream. Eat all you can. Be a glutton. Stuff yourselves. It’s all free, boys and girls, it's all free. Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry!
Big Animatronic Rough House Man: The rough house, the rough house. It’s the roughest toughest joint ya ever seen. Come in and pick a fight, boys and girls.
Randall and Menlo were eating pies, ice cream cones and a chicken.
Randall: Oh boy! It's like Battle Tag!
Menlo: Yeah, let's do it!
Tobacco Row Barker: Tobacco Row, Tobacco Row. Get your cigars, cigarettes, and chewin' tobacco. Come in and smoke your heads off! There's nobody here to stop you!
Hustler Kid: Oh boy! I'm getting a tobacco!
Model Home Parker: Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry! See the model home. It's open for destruction and it's all yours, boys and girls, it's all yours!
TJ: I don't think I can destroy a model home.
Vince: No we can't do that! This whomps!
Spinelli: I agree with Vince! This whomps!
Gretchen: Me too!
Mikey: I know, guys! How about we play snooker!
Gus: That's a good idea, Mikey! Let's play snooker!
Geoffery: Hey, guys!
TJ: What is it, Geoffery?
Geoffery: Can I play with you all?
Gretchen: Sure! Why not?
The Ashleys were keen to play bowling.
Ashley A: Hey, girls! Let's play bowling.
Ashley B: Good idea, Ashley B! Let's do it!
Ashley Q: We can't wait to get a 300 perfect score!
Ashley T: This is going to be fun!
Ashleys: Ooh, scandalous!
Gordy was on a carousel.
Gordy: Woo wee! What a great idea!
Phil: It sure is!
Shelley: Wow! What a great day!
Willy was on a roller coaster.
Willy: Yippee! What a great day!
Upside-Down Girl was hanging on a bar.
Upside-Down Girl: What a great day!
Swinger Girl was taking a swinging ride.
Swinger Girl: Yeehaw! What a great ride!
Some of the fourth graders were wrecking everything on the model home in sight, and the Diggers were digging a hole. Digger Dave found a sack of coins.
Digger Dave: Look, Sam! I found a sack of gold!
Digger Sam: That's great, Dave! We can use some gold to buy stuff from Kelso's!
Megan throw a brick at the window of the model home.
Megan: Bull's eye!
Judy: This is great!
Timmy: Nice throw, Megan!
Brandon the Singer was eating an ice cream.
Brandon: This is the best day ever! Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! It's a great trip out ever!
Susan: I'm getting a hotdog.
Lily: Me too.
Bradley: Yeah. I like hotdogs.
Lou Strickland called to the Bro Characters.
Lou Strickland: All right now. Hop to it, Bros. Come on! Come on! Shut the doors and lock them tight.
The Bro Character shut the big gates.
Lou Strickland: Now get below and get those crates ready. Give a fourth grader enough rope and the fourth grader will soon make a jackass of himself. Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!
Later, outside Pleasure Island, at the dock, the fourth graders had been turned into donkeys and they were suffering from Donkeyitis. Lou Strickland and the Bro Characters were loading fourth graders into crates and onto the boat.
Lou Strickland: Come on, guys, keep them moving! Lively there now. We haven't got all day. Come on, come on. Let's have another.
Water Bro brought Phil out towards Lou Strickland.
Lou Strickland: And what's your name?
Lou Strickland: Okay, you'll do!
Lou Strickland took the clothes off Phil.
Lou Strickland: In you go!
Lou Strickland threw Phil into a crate with five other fourth graders.
Lou Strickland: You fourth graders will bring a nice price! Hahahahahahaha! All right. Next!
Basebro Bro brought out Cryer Kid towards Lou Strickland.
Lou Strickland: And what might your name be?
Cryer Kid: Bradley Williams. Better known as Cryer Kid.
Lou Strickland: Hmmm, so you can talk.
Cryer Kid: Y-yes sir. I want go home to my mummy!
Lou Strickland: Take him back! He can still talk!
Lou Strickland threw Cryer Kid into a pen with some other fourth graders that could still talk. Cryer Kid and the fourth graders all protested in unison, begging for mercy.
Cryer Kid: Please, please! I don't want to be a donkey! Let me out of here!
Lou Strickland: Quiet! You fourth graders have had your fun, and you're not going anywhere. Now, pay for it. Or else I'll sell you all to Mental People's Home so you will become Tina's pet donkeys. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
TJ: Oh man! This whomps! This can't be happening, Vince!
Vince: I know, TJ! This whomps!
Spinelli: I can't believe the Ashleys are going to be sold to the circus because they're reduced to braying.
TJ: I agree, Spinelli. This whomps!
Gretchen: I know, TJ. We're all going to be doomed, and we'll be sold to Mental People's Home and become Tina's pets.
Mikey: This is sad, Gretchen.
Gus: I agree with Mikey. We're going to be doomed!
Mikey: You're right, Gus. We're all going to be doomed! And it's all Strickland's fault! We're going to be stuck in the den and we'll be doomed in Mental People's Home and become Tina's pet donkeys!
Baseball Bro: Hey! Shut up, fatso!
Mikey remained silent.
TJ: This is great. Now we're suffering from Donkeyitis, and it's all that double-crossing Strickland's fault.
Spinelli: I bet Randall and Menlo can snitch on that jerk.
Gretchen: That's great! But where are Randall and Menlo?
In the snooker house, Randall and Menlo were playing snooker.
Randall: Boy, my dad's a snooker player and he always competes with other players including Mr LaMaise.
Suddenly, Randall sprouted donkey ears, unaware of this.
Menlo: Oh no! Randall, you've just sprouted donkey ears!
Randall: Donkey ears, huh? Ah, phooey!
Randall struck a ball and grew a donkey tail.
Menlo: Oh no! You've grown a donkey tail!
Randall: Really? I seriously doubt that.
Randall leaned over the pool table, but when his head turned into a fuzzy brown donkey muzzle. He turned around and showed Menlo that he now had that head of a donkey.
Randall: Do I look like a jackass to you?
Menlo: You sure do! Ha-ha ha, haw, hee-haw!
Menlo covered his mouth in shock.
Randall: Hey, you laugh like a donkey! Ha-ha ha, haw, hee-haw!
Randall gasped and covered his mouth to stop.
Randall: Did that come out of me?!
Menlo nodded in a horrified look. Randall felt his face, realising he had a muzzle instead of a nose.
Randall felt his donkey muzzle again, and then felt his donkey ears from bottom to top.
Randall felt nothing but fur.
Randall tugged at his ears.
Randall: What the----? What's going on?
Randall looked in a mirror, saw that he was only half a donkey, and screamed in terror.
Randall: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHHHH! I've been double-crossed! Help! Help! Somebody, help! I've been framed! HELP!!!!
Randall begged to Menlo for help, while Menlo ended up backing in a wall, as Randall crawled on all four feer, and Menlo got his light blue button-down shirt grabbed by Randall's hands.
Randall: Please, you've got to help me. Oh, be a pal! Call Miss Finster! Call TJ! Call anybody!
Randall let go of Menlo, as his hands closed up, turning into hooves. Menlo gasped in shock and backed away, scared.
Randall: MUUUUUUM! DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!!!
Randall was forced down on all fours, and having turned into a donkey completely, began to run around the room, and started braying wildly, while Menlo ran away and hid behind a chair, and when Randall smashed the mirror with his back hooves, knocked tables over, and kicked chairs all over the place, but fled, and still continued to bray uncontrollably as his clothes flew off. Menlo suddenly sprouted gray donkey ears. Menlo felt his donkey ears.
Menlo: Oh! What's happened?
Menlo grew a donkey tail, and his head turned into a fuzzy grey donkey muzzle. Menlo felt his muzzle instead of a nose, and then felt nothing but fur.
Menlo: Oh no! Let me look!
Menlo rushed over to the smashed mirror. Menlo screamed in horror.
Menlo: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHHHH! I'M A DONKEY TOO! I'VE BEEN DOUBLE-CROSSED BY STRICKLAND! HELP! SOMEBODY HELP! I'M TELLING! MISS FINSTER! MISS FINSTER!
Menlo was forced down on all fours, and having turned into a donkey completely, and started braying wildly. He ran out of the snooker house, and ran as fast as his hooves could carry him. Then he saw Lou Strickland holding Randall.
Lou Strickland: Hahahahaha! Looks like I'm catching another donkey now!
Lou Strickland caught Menlo.
Lou Strickland: Ha! You're mine! Hahahahahahahahahahahaha! Now I'm going to sell you to the salt mine! Hahahahahahahahaha!
Later, back in Lawson's house, Lawson's dad was sitting on a couch.
Lawson's dad: I'm going to watch the news.
So Lawson's dad turned on the TV and he started to watch the news. Mort Chalk was onscreen and he was in the GNN News studio with YankieDude5000.
Mort: Good afternoon, everyone. This is Mort Chalk, Big Story News. And YankieDude5000 is accompanying me today. Today's news that a 28-year old man named Lou Strickland stole the big bus from the bus station, sent the Bro Characters to load some crates to the docks, kidnapped all the 9 year old kids of Third Street School and sent them to Pleasure Island.
YankieDude5000: After a long play in Pleasure Island, all the 9 year olds were turned into donkeys and were now suffering from a great disease which was known as Donkeyitis. The Bro characters had been placing the 9 year olds in crates so Strickland could sell them to salt mines and circuses, and also, his plan was to sell talking donkeys to Mental People's Home so they could become Tina's pet donkeys. All the parents are crying about their missing children. We take you now to Third Street School. Miss Grotke is very upset because she lost all her fourth grade students.
Miss Grotke was onscreen and was in front of Third Street School.
Miss Grotke: It was terrible. That horrible man Lou Strickland has stolen all of my fourth grade students. This is so terrible.
Then Miss Furley came.
Miss Furley: I can't believe I've lost my fourth grade students. This is so terrible.
Miss Grotke: We've also learned that Lou Strickland has sent our students to Pleasure Island and our students have been turned into donkeys.
Then Miss Finster and Principal Prickly came.
Miss Finster: Alordayne and Sarah, what's the matter?
Miss Grotke: Lou Strickland has kidnapped all of my fourth grade students! I've lost them!
Miss Furley: I've lost my fourth grade students as well!
Principal Prickly: Do not worry, girls. They'll come back soon.
Miss Finster was feeling upset.
Miss Finster: I've lost my snitch Randall and his partner Menlo. Now I have to use Douglas, because of Strickland.
King Bob appeared on screen in front of the Jungle Gym, along with Tara.
King Bob: I can't believe all fourth graders have been kidnapped by Lou Strickland.
Tara: It was horrible! Strickland has got the idea from the Disney film Pinocchio.
Jordan and Jerome appeared onscreen.
Jordan: Also, Jerome and I heard Lawson, Gelman, Mundy and Skeens laughing.
Jerome: I've also heard that Lawson got Strickland to kidnap the fourth graders.
Jordan looked angry.
Jordan: Wait a second! It was Lawson who sent Strickland to kidnap all the fourth graders and send them to Pleasure Island where they get turned into donkeys.
Jerome: Also, Lawson got the idea from the film Pinocchio. And now, all the fourth graders are suffering from Donkeyitis, and it's all Lawson's fault! Lawson, you are in big trouble! Big big big big big trouble!
Knarf appeared onscreen in front of Old Rusty.
Knarf: Lawson, you are in big trouble for sending Strickland to send JT and his friends and other fourth graders to Pleasure Island. If it ever happens to them, you're in big trouble! So there, you geek! If you dare send me and my friends to Pleasure Island! You'll be in deep trouble! Understand?!
Scribe Kid appeared on screen at the other side of the playground.
Scribe Kid: I can't believe what you did, Lawson! I'm going to get you for this!
King Bob reappeared onscreen with Tara.
King Bob: You will be sent to the dodgeball wall for this predicament!
Tara: You had the fourth graders sold to salt mines and circuses! And you had them sold to Mental People's Home where they end up becoming Tina's pet donkeys!
Jordan and Jerome reappeared onscreen.
Jordan: I agree with Tara!
Jerome: Me too! You whomp!
Miss Finster and Principal Prickly appeared onscreen in front of Third Street School.
Miss Finster: Lawson, you're in big trouble for getting Strickland to send all of Miss Grotke and Miss Furley's fourth grade students to Pleasure Island! Poor Miss Grotke and Miss Furley are crying! I've lost my snitch Randall, and now, I've got to have Douglas, thanks to you!
Principal Prickly: And we've got complaints from their parents! They've been crying and reacting to the kidnapping of their children! Now their children are turned into donkeys, thanks to you! You are hereby suspended for three days!
Back in the GNN News studio, Mort continued announcing.
Mort: Thanks for watching this!
YankieDude5000: We hope Lawson and Strickland get punished for their misbehaviour.
Mort: Thanks all for tonight in Big Story News.
Lawson's dad got very angry.
Lawson's dad: What?! I can't believe Erwin sent Lou Strickland to kidnap all the fourth graders of Third Street School and take them to Pleasure Island. I'll have a word with him! Erwin, get over here now!
Just then, Lawson came.
Lawson: What is it, dad?
Lawson's dad: Did you send Lou Strickland to kidnap all the fourth graders of Third Street School and take them to Pleasure Island?
Lawson: Um, um, um. Yes I certainly did.
Lawson's dad threw a tantrum.
Lawson's dad: GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH! Erwin, how dare you send Lou Strickland to kidnap all the fourth graders of Third Street School and take them to Pleasure Island?! Where did you get the idea from?
Lawson: I got it from Pinocchio, where the Coachman takes Pinocchio and the other boys to Pleasure Island where they suffer from Donkeyitis.
Lawson's dad: That's very mean of you! You should be ashamed of yourself! Now the fourth graders are turned into donkeys and are suffering from Donkeyitis, thanks to you and Lou Strickland! Some were being sold to salt mines and circuses and some were being sold to Mental People's Home and ended up becoming Tina's pet donkeys. Now Miss Grotke and Miss Furley are crying about their fourth grade classes! Now all their parents are crying, thanks to you! That's it, you are grounded, grounded, grounded for a week! Go to bed right now!
Lawson went to his room, crying.
