Just then his mam came in with celery sticks which were his favourite food. He bit into them but they were rotten. He spit them out on the ground making a paaaaaugh sound.
“ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME!!!” asked Barry.

Longford Larry was passing by in his Bugatti and Barry asked him for a lift.
Longford Larry was a scout for Unicorn F.C. but Barry didn’t know that.
Longford Larry dropped Barry at training and stayed on the side-lines to watch him play. The ball was passed to Barry and from the halfway line he scores a magnificent bicycle kick goal. Barry did a backwards knee slide. Everybody clapped and someone shouted, “We love you Barry!”
At half time, Longford Larry asked Barry if he would like to join Unicorn F.C. Barry was delighted. “If you join the club and win the mysterious forest league, I will give you 600 million unicoins,” said Larry.
