As a historian, I believe it’s imperative to understand why Ima Athol and Lulu Spork traveled so far from their hometown of Pleasantvillalala, California, U.S.A., North America to the Territory of T.I.S.H. (There Is Still Hope) before settling down. Fortunately, resources abound.
A series of incidents prompted the two friends to leave Pleasantvillalala in the dark of night without telling a soul.
The First Incident: Soon after the tragic death of Pleasantvillalala Elementary School’s principal, Ima was reinstated in second grade. Amazingly, after one term, she received “A”s in her coursework, a drastic change from “F”s which had been the cause of her dropping out of first grade.
Some people attributed Ima’s excellent grades to her discovery:And then Ima happened upon her dentist wrestling with Ms. Offkey. Upon interrogation, Dr. Toothem thanked Ima for interrupting the vicious wrestling which might have caused him bodily harm. Ever so grateful, he became the family dentist and never charged them for his work, including fifteen extractions.Curators of Pleasantvillalala History Museum:
