Once upon a time there was an unassuming population of cream puffs*, just happily going about their business.
One day, a couple of opportunistic viruses** noticed that the cream puffs were very complacent.
So they called a bunch of their friends.
They managed to infect one of the cream puffs.
As the virus spread through the cream puffs, chou pastry scientists begged them to stay inside, and wear masks. But the cream puffs thought it wasn’t going to be that bad, so they ignored the scientists and kept going out in crowds, insisting that it was fake news, and a hoax.
The viruses spread rampant throughout the cream puff community, making them highly visible to giant monsters, who came along and gobbled them all up.
Of course, then the giant monsters also gobbled up the viruses too, but that’s a story for a different time.
*Cream puffs are made with chou pastry, filled with vanilla pastry cream, and decorated with chocolate chips
**Viruses are made from Oreos and cream cheese, coated in white chocolate. Decorations include chocolate chips and pretzel sticks.
