One day, a little boy named Chris came home from school with hope is his eyes.
"Mama, can I have a Webkinz?" He asked his mother as nicely as he could. She looked confused, so he calmly and politely told his mother what a webkinz was.
"I know you don't like the internet very much, mama," He said, "But it's totally safe! Nothing could ever hurt you on Webkinz, and it's fun and educational, too!" His mom frowned.
"Sorry, honey, but Webkinz sounds a little dangerous. Let's buy you a beanie baby instead." Jimmy reluctanly agreed, knowing his mama wouldn't budge when her mind was made. He knew his birthday was coming up in two weeks. Sometimes his mama would surprise him like that, he thought fondly.
He patiently waited and waited for his birthday, and every day he went on webkinz.com to look at pictures of the toys. His favorite was the lion, so he made sure his mama knew this.
When Chris's birthday came, he ripped all of his presents open one by one, trying to hide his disappointment when each one turned out to not be a webkinz. But with one present left, he was really starting to worry.
What if it isn't what I want? Am I gonna let the reat of the world enjoy webkinz, while I can't do anything but pla with beanie babies?, He thought worriedly. He carefully ipped open the package.... and...
It was another beanie baby! He pretended to be happy, but a sinister plan was really cooking inside his head.
"If I can't enjoy Webkinz, then no one can!" He said to himself in the privacy of his room. So, he logged on to his computer.
As soon as it was done loading, he logged on to google. He found every Webkinz website he could, put on webkinz and what you can do, and went onto a forum for webkinz.
He posted a bunch of posts about how his weblkinz were dying and how Ms.Birdy came in through a window and killed them. He addad graphic details and smiled to himself as people started posting back.
"That might have happened to me too!"
"What should I do?"
"Is it true?"
Everyone was panicking, and he told them all to post the rumor on every place they could find. Soon, it had spread all throughout Canada, the U.S., and the U.K.
There was no stopping Chris. He knew that everyone was scared to go on Webkinz, so it was a perfect time to swoop in and steal an account. He went on a forum and said he knew how to protect you from the rumor. Instantly, three panicking people gave him their account and password. He changed the passwords, and...Tadaaa! He had three good accounts. Using kinzpost, he transferred all the exclusive items from the three into the one with the nicest house and the most kinzcash, and he changed the passwords of the other two accounts back to what they were. Eventually, Ganz found out about the rumor and posted a bulletin. But, most people thought they were just covering up, and didn't believe it. That is how the rumor started, and you can make it end. Post this on as many websites as you can if you want to stop the madness!
