Trial and Error
[At her house...]
"At last, I finally have the chance to take down Pudgyville for its disgusting behavior. The date of the trial is here and when it?s over, Pudgyville will turn over a new leaf," thought Neat Pea.
"There she goes again. I wish she was more kind to them. It?s not like they harmed her or anything," thought Pea Pod Pie.
"Come along, Pea Pod. It?s time for Pudgyville to face the music," ordered Neat Pea. *Pea Pod Pie follows her to Pudgyville* [In Pudgyville...]
"They?re back. Does this mean we have a date for the trial?" noted Mocha.
"You better believe you do. It?s today so get your lardy butts to the court!" shouted Neat Pea.
"Where is this court?" asked Eduardo.
"It?s the next town from you,. Ponyville and you?re all to follow us," answered Neat Pea before walking in that direction. *Pudgyville?s occupants follow* [At the courthouse...]
"This is the end of the line for your town of blubber," smirked Neat Pea.
"We?ll see," replied Eduardo before the group enters. [Inside the courthouse...]
"It?s time for the case of Pudgyville vs. Neat Pea to begin. Will the defendant Neat Pea please rise and tell the court why you?re here," began Hammerhooves.
"Ponies of this jury, you are witnessing a disaster of the highest level. These ponies cannot seem to understand that exposure of flab like that is indecent in every sense of the word. I have come here to have it shut down or in the least change its attitude," explained Neat Pea.
"Very well and will Pudgyville state your reasons for being here," requested Hammerhooves.
"Certainly, your honor. These lovely ponies and I are here to stand up for what we believe in, which is a world where fat is acceptable, exposed or not. It?s a way of making a statement that we enjoy fat or being fat without forcing others to like it. We all get along together and feel that we should stand out against the norm that fat is unacceptable," answered Eduardo.
"Now it?s time to call witnesses. Neat Pea, please choose a witness," continued Hammerhooves.
"I call my own daughter Pea Pod Pie," announced Neat Pea. *Pea Pod Pie nervously waddles to the front*
"Pea Pod Pie, is it true that you both are against Pudgyville?s desires?" asked Hammerhooves.
"I?m not but my mom is. Truth is, I can?t be against them because I?m fat too. Besides, I can?t stand to listen to my mom anymore. Day in and day out she continuously rants about how much she wants Pudgyville to suffer and drags me into it whether I like it or not," admitted Pea Pod Pie.
"How could you disobey your own mother?" questioned Neat Pea loudly.
"Pudgyville, it is your turn to call a witness," instructed Hammerhooves.
"Jasmine is my witness," stated Eduardo before Jasmine waddled to the front.
"Jasmine, how do you feel about your town?" asked Hammerhooves.
"I love it here. As you?ve all have already heard from mayor Eduardo, this town is a loving place to be and doesn?t force anyone to be fat or skinny. What we?re dealing with here, is an opposition that is trying to shut us down solely because of her opinion and she?s been like that since we first encountered her the other day. She clearly doesn?t seem to care what our feelings are and cannot seem to just walk away," replied Jasmine.
"Well said, Jasmine," remarked Eduardo.
"Now it?s time for the final verdict. How does Pudgyville plead?" asked Hammerhooves.
"Not guilty," replied the jury.
"WHAT?! questioned Neat Pea in shock.
"How does the jury find Neat Pea?" continued Hammerhooves.
"Guilty!" declared the jury.
"Very well. Mrs. Neat Pea, you are hereby sentenced to 100 days in jail for your malicious behavior and disrupting the court system without a proper reason," concluded Hammerhooves.
"Yes! We won!" shouted Eduardo.
"So school is on tomorrow then?" asked Mocha.
"It sure is, Mocha and I?m happy to have this ordeal out of the way," nodded Ms. Sheila.
"This wouldn?t have worked out if we didn?t work together," thought Bob.
