Milky by B.

 

TRANSLATION: Once upon a time, Milky was walking down the street. Then he saw a mud puddle and said, “WHAT COULD THAT BE?” So then he got into his car. Then he arrived at a witch’s house. Then he said, “Did you ever make a mud puddle?” he said. The witch says, “Yes.” Then he finally found out the mystery.
