Bears Invade The Earth
One day on peaceful Earth, in a broken-down cottage, was Stupermann.
But far away, in another galaxy, on another planet (Planet Grizzle to be exact), there was a clan of alien bears. Their planet had run out of food and water. Their leader, King Grizzler the Third, had found Earth. He saw how it had plenty of food, and was covered in water. “What a genius I am,” he said to himself. He called to his Second in Command, “Hey, Grizzler JR! Prepare 200 ships! We’re invading the planet called Er-Er-Er-whatever!”
“But S-S-Sir,” stammered Grizzler JR.
“No buts!” said King Grizzler the Third.
“As you wish,” said his Second in Command, hurrying off.
Back on Earth…
“This is Jeremy Wingman reporting the news! NASA has just found 200 unidentified flying objects in space! It is said they’re heading towards EARTH! Panic is going all around the world! A local citizen said, ‘It’s a disgrace! Everyone is running around! It’s like Earth’s gone crazy!’”
Stupermann was watching all of this chaos on his broken TV screen.
More news came on: “But wait! The hero, Superman is flying into space! Soon Earth will be saved!”
“Humph,” groaned Stupermann, jealous as always of his successful brother. He turned off the TV, tossing the remote away.
All the way in space…
In honeycomb shaped shuttles, “Sir,” said King Grizzler’s Second in Command, “we have exactly 2 hours, 20 minutes and 40 seconds till we reach Earth.”
“Excellent!” said King Grizzler, rubbing his paws.
Back on earth…
2 hours, 20 minutes and 40 seconds later, the bears reached Earth's atmosphere. There, they saw Superman.
”Oh,” said King Grizzler, “that's just a funny flying man. Blast him!” He said to his Second in Command.
And Superman was blasted to Planet Z.
“This is Jeremy Wingman reporting the news! It’s an invasion! An invasion I tell you! No more Disneyland! It’s now called Grizzlyland! No Ocean Park! It’s Honey Park! It’s not Circle K, it’s Bear’s K! It’s not 7-Eleven, it’s Bear-Eleven!"
In the tallest building (The Bear State Building) King Grizzler the Third spoke. “Ah,” he said, “it’s good to be King.”
At home, Stupermann, had had enough. He decided there was one thing to do. And that was BATTLE.
