Chaptr 1 - Don't Mak Plans Whn You'r Tipsy
Th odd pair, mployr and mploy, wr still in th function room thr hours latr, although thy wr now lying on th floor instad of sitting at th tabl. Dlibird had brokn opn th padlockd alcohol frzr so thy could try to drown thir problms in an ocan of drunknnss. It hadn't had quit the dsird ffct - although thy both flt a lot mor confidnt about vrything, th issu wasn't yt dad. It was to b this day that Vx would latr look back on and rmind himslf nvr to gt drunk around Dlibird.
You s, Dlibird cam up with a totally 1337 plan to sav th channl that day. Vx knw only too wll that vn whn th drangd pnguin was sobr, his plans wr disastrous to say th last, but things wr about to gt a whol lot wors than thy had vr bn bfor.
"You know," said Dlibird, onto his ighth bottl of br, which h was tipping into his mouth from th air - a mssy businss - "w'll just hav to gt him to rvrs th law. Prsuad th prsidnt that th world will b dprivd of its bst ntrtainmnt if h lts this law surviv."
"You know," rplid Vx, onto his thirtnth, "for onc, you'r right. In fact, now that I think about it, you'v always bn right. I lov you, Dlibird."
"My God," muttrd Dlibird, "you'r finally sobr!"

Th nxt morning cam much too quickly for Vx's liking, but com it did, and th camraman rluctantly opnd his ys and lt out a hug yawn. Laning ovr to chck his alarm clock (which rad 11:54), h groand as if h'd just ralisd h'd had a nightmar. It was hardly morning. Th door to his spartan room in th back of th Channl Dlibird building was slowly asd opn, and Dlibird cam through, ys half closd and clothd in pink pajamas with bunnis on.
"Don't tll m you'r drunk again," h grumbld as h saw Vx push back th shts. Th intrpid camraman took in th commnt, allowing it to dissolv in his had for a numbr of minuts bfor it rgistrd. H vaguly rmmbrd thir xchang th prvious night, and ralisd what a blundr h'd mad.
"No, you idiot, I'v got a hangovr. I was drunk last night
. If you thought..." sighing, Vx prssd his hand against his aching forhad and bangd his had against th wall. "you ar such a moron
"I may b xprincing a hangovr, Vx, but I still rmmbr how to dock your pay."
Muttring to himslf about distinctly untastful things, Vx pushd his mployr out of th door and procdd to gt drssd.

Arriving in th function room at two-thirty in th aftrnoon, Vx was grtd by Dlibird, who was waving a pic of papr which was adornd by an assortmnt of smingly random scribbls. H raisd his ybrows whn h saw the silly document. "What's that, th answr you wrot in your Mdia Studis xam from school? No wondr you faild."
Aftr shooting Vx a cold star (pun intndd), Dlibird pinnd it to th whitboard at th nd of th tabl with a magnt. "Rmmbr my plan?"
"Hmm?" Vx draggd his had off th tabl, dsprat to gt som mor slp.
"Pay attntion, dirt!" Dlibird snappd, growling most uncharactristically. "Do you rmmbr th plan I cam up with last night to sav th channl?"
"Oh, my goodnss, do you actually xpct m to bliv you ar still srious about that? W WR DRUNK. It was a stupid plan." Dlibird lookd at Vx lik h was som dog poop on th bottom of his sho. "It was a GRAT plan, and you'r bound by law to hlp m mak it work!"
Vx laughd to himslf. "Bound by law? Th irony! Anyway, I'm not. That's obvious."
Th pnguin suddnly took on a quit intimidating sinistr air, jumping onto th tabl and pressing his head right against Vx's, growling "Oh, ys, you ar..."
Rtracting his considrably thick skull from Vx's thinnr one, h pointd at th papr. "You signd this contract last night!"
Vx's jaw droppd. This was impossibl. Absolutly impossibl! "Hy, I don't rmmbr doing that! I rmmbrd vrything, howvr vagu, and yt that's not thr! Bat that!"
"How am I supposd to know what you rmmbr? You could asily li about it," mused the Pokmon, bing rmarkably intllignt for onc, "and you hav no proof that you didn't, so...th law rquirs you to hlp me!" Bfor th distraught camraman could say anymor, h continued, "mt m at th front door at 6:00 AM tomorrow, and w'll bgin," bfor strutting out of th door.
For th scond tim in two days, Vx brok down and wpt on th function room floor.
