Angry Bob was angry.
"I will fly a kite," he said. "Flying a kite makes people happy."
So Angry Bob walked to the store.
"Hello," he said to the man at the store, "I would like to purchase a kite."
"I am sorry," said the man, "but I am out of kites. Perhaps you would like a couch."
"A couch?" said Bob, "Why would I want a couch?"
"Because couches are nice," said the man, "And they make people happy."
Convinced, Bob bought the couch and carried it from the store over his head. Arriving at a field, he paused. "The man was correct," thought Bob, "This couch will bring me happiness." And for the first time in his 39 years, Bob smiled. And threw the couch into the air. It did not fly. Bob was crushed like a soft biscuit.
