How jello was made

(0) Once upon a time there was a girl named Bombay who always got picked on. Then one day she went crazy because someone killed her favorite slug in her room when she was there. She turned into a giant slug. (Johnathon, Age 8 to 12, 3/30/2006 10:01:33 AM, Howjellowasmade)

(1) She inhabites your ordinary garden, harnessing an empire of slugs to seek her vengens on those whom mistreated her brutally! (Twilight22, Parent, 5/14/2013 10:01:51 PM, Howjellowasmade)

(2) Yet as fate finds everyone, she slipped on some syrup and fell on a pin! Ouchie!! So all of a sudden her anger poured out in the form of jello where the wound was! (OOstoryofslugs!, Age 8 to 12, 5/14/2013 8:57:24 PM, Howjellowasmade)

(3) She was still alive of course. Her size compared to pin was fine but, she grew smaller and smaller as more and mmore jello flung on out. (Sillyslaps, Age 8 to 12, 10/9/2013 3:07:22 PM, Howjellowasmade)

(4) Soon, she became a small microbe, a disease called Noobie-Boorocolus. She infected the Slug Killer. She was sick, but she got better. Then a creature came and said "because of your evil heart, you will spend all of your life, um, well, as a virus" ...well, at least jello was created to help the sick people feel better. Jello was made AND a virus that lets you stay home and eat it!! (melissa smithee, Age 8 to 12, 5/14/2013 3:41:20 PM, Howjellowasmade)

(5) ...not quite...The noobe boorocolus spread and made everyone sick and there was a shortage of jello. now what would the people do??!!?? (jane smith, Age 8 to 12, 5/14/2013 3:42:08 PM, Howjellowasmade)

(6) Nobody could figure out why it was spreading! Some slugs went crazy, others tried to find other cures like chicken pot pie but no cases were found. (Ryan, Age 8 to 12, 1/30/2007 3:29:24 PM, Howjellowasmade)

(7) Wait a minute!! Wait a minute!! The story isn't over yet. After a lot of thinking and making cures that didn't work, they finally found a cure, Potato, Chicken feathers and chilli sauce!! Unfortunetly, the cure only worked on 3 people at a time. (Brendan Boyd, Age 8 to 12, 2/13/2007 2:35:25 AM, Howjellowasmade)

(8) Because the cure only worked on 3 people at a time it was a very slow process getting through everyone. It took 3 weeks just for 10 people to be cured. (Brendan Boyd, Age 8 to 12, 2/13/2007 2:39:54 AM, Howjellowasmade)

(9) Then, all the Potatoes, Chicken Feathers and chilli sauce ran out! But some scientist made a vaccine, and everyone was saved... for now. They froze the noobe boorocolus virus and kept it to study... (Lian XII, cake and dragon lover., Age 8 to 12, 2/13/2007 11:52:39 PM, Howjellowasmade)

(10) The virus stayed confined for many years, eventually people forgot its very existence. Then, 300 years later, a scientist discovered the tiny virus in his lab and took it out for examination. Out poured a large mound of squishy substance. Te scientist, ever curious, stuck his finger in the substance and tasted it. It was delicious!!! The virus had mutated into a form of food while it had been refrigerated. The scientist quickly informed his collegues of his discovery and a contest was put out, offering $100.00 to whoever could come up with a suiting name for the jello. Many odd names came up, Chuck Norris being the leading contender, until one child sent in a name so great the world now knows it by heart. Jello.
