Melbourne, Australia-- Somewhere over the Rainbow River in northern Australia, a tribe of tiny humans has been hiding from the world for many centuries. An anthropologist from Kansas parachuted into the hidden enclave yesterday and made some amazing discoveries. Three things are unusual about the tribe--they are Caucasian, they are all very short, and they all speak fluent English.
Dr. Dorothy Gale is the anthropologist. Dr. Gale spent about a day with the odd tribe and she was eager to talk about her strange discovery.
"They're a very nice and friendly people." said Dr. Gale "They like singing and dancing and wearing colorful clothes. They are especially obsessed with shoes." she added.
Dr. Gale tried to explain to the tribe that she came from America, but eventually she had to give up.
"I had to tell them that I fell from a star, I fell very far and Kansas I said was the name of the star. Kansas I said was the name of the star." she repeated.
Dr. Gale also fell into trouble with some local witches and felt that her life was in danger.
"I was wearing some red shoes when I arrived--apparently it's some sort of taboo. It caused a fight with the local wiccans--not a good thing to do." noted Dr. Gale.
Dr. Gale left the tribe of little people by walking down a yellow path through the jungle. She has returned to Kansas but plans to go back to the tribe after conducting more research.
"If I only had a brain, the heart, and the nerve I would return to Australia tonight." said Dr. Gale.
