Dr. Rosa Bonamie could not believe her amazing discovery --- an island in the middle of the Pacific made wholly of gingerbread, with a bit of whipped cream here and there as well!
"What a fascinating people must have once lived here!" she thought. "Did they have books, science, social media? If only I could have spoken with them."
With that she heard a guttural sound and behind a mass of whipped cream she spotted a man made of gingerbread! He spoke:
"I am Lord Oakrum, last of the Gingerbread Men."
Dr. Bonamie rushed to his side, lifted him in the air, and swallowed him whole.
"Damn! If only I could have controlled my love of gingerbread, I'd have learned so much instead of wiping out the entire race!"

Hey, why don't we get together for some gingerbread this holiday season? Buildings and countryside only!
