Once upon a time a vicious bison was terrorizing Ted’s cabin.
Ted had built the cabin far from civilization but he had forgotten to bring a gun, trap, or anything else to protect himself with. He feared that the bison would maul him and he needed to take action.
Unfortunately for Ted, he hadn’t been to the city in a while. That meant he only had two liters of Diet Coke, five pounds of ground beef, a few packs of Mentos, a frying pan, and a metal bowl. He lacked the strength to hurl furniture at the beast.
And he had to rescue himself.
So he fried a meatloaf and stuck the Mentos inside. Then he poured the Diet Coke into the bowl and left a nice snack outside for the bison.
The bison ate it.
Do you know what happens when Mentos mix with Diet Coke? They explode.
And so the bison exploded in a flash of orange and red. Blood and intestines gushed through the window and drenched poor Ted.
Incidentally, the bison had anthrax and Ted became infected. He died soon afterwards.
Nobody lived happily ever after.
