Once upon a time in 3870 there was a boy named Jim Nastics. He was a young boy and like most young boys he was interested in EVERYTHING. He pushed all of his nanny bots buttons, he liked to climb on top of their apartment and jump off to where the sheets were hanging out to dry. He would bounce off of them and jump back into the air, somersaulting and twisting. Mama Nastics figured it out before the robot nanny did for she was a little slow because she was only a NaNnY-RoBoT 4S and was totally last year. Little Jim kept getting in all sorts of trouble, swinging through the branches of the trees in the nearby forest, balancing on the fallen logs and jumping around the zero gravity park. His mother became increasingly annoyed for she thought he was going to hurt himself, so she sent him off to live with his grandparents. The older and wiser Nastics trusted little Jim and let him practice and develop his techniques. One day years later Jim, now in his late teens was inside for a break when he saw a dusty old hourglass on the mantle that he had never noticed before. He picked it up and was examining it when there was a rush of wind and a flash of lightning and JIm was swept off his feet and hurtled into Romania, 1968 where he met a little girl in a leotard returning from her modern dance class. Her name was Nadia Comaneci and he introduced her to the exercises he had been practicing. She was amazed and after a little practice went on to the 1976 Summer Olympics and performed the sport she named gymnastics after Jim,the spelling's different, she's Romanian. Jim was unexpectedly swept back to his time and was unable to see her perform. The new sport was a huge hit and people around the globe loved it. Now in 2012 it is Hawaii Fried Dough’s hope that this song be used in a gymnastics routine in the memory of Jim Nastics, who won’t actually be born for another 1768 years. The End
