A story of epic proportions

The Story of Penny and Eggbert

Once upon a time, there was a penguin named Penny and a duck named Eggbert. (They come from a strange land called "3D Universe" in Africa. Strange, isn't it!)
One day, Eggert said to Penny, "Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack."
Penny replied, "Peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep, peep!"
This made Eggbert very excited and he said, "Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack."
And that is the end of our story.
