You might be asking yourself who "nobody" is and why you're reading a story about someone who, according to the word, doesn't even exist. But I
promise you...by the end of this, that will be the most easily answered question. Believe it or not, this story really isn't that hard to read,
although I'd be lying if I said it doesn't stretch your comprehensive reading skills. At worst, it's horrifically confusing. At best, it'll be the
most thoughtful and inspiring piece you've read today. Anyway...on to the story!
There were four men living in a house. Their names were Everybody, Anybody, Nobody, and Somebody. One day, Somebody won the lottery. "Yay!" said
Everybody. Nobody had an idea what to do with it, so Everybody threw an outrageous party. Somebody sent out invitations, and it was a rave like Nobody
would have believed. See, Nobody knew how to party. But Somebody said. "Whoa, this party is getting out of control." Everybody turned and said, "Naw,
it's fine." Then Somebody's friend said, "I think it's time to call it quits." Everybody turned and said, "It'll be fine." Shortly after, the cops
showed up. Everybody said it was Somebody who called them, but Nobody said, "It could have been Anybody." Needless to say, Everybody went to jail,
Somebody went to rehab, and Nobody got away. Years later, Everybody was still mad at Somebody, and Nobody knew the real reason why: it's easier for
Everybody to be mad at Somebody when Nobody did what Anyone could have done.
If you've made it this far, I commend you...and reward you with a single, simple question: What was it that Nobody did? If you can answer this
question, then you truly understand this story. It's fun, it's somewhat pointless, and you managed to grow some "brussels" (brain muscles). I've seen
more pointless threads, so why not have some fun?
