After being ejected and forever banned from C-Town, where he once stole a can of crushed peas after attempting to pay for them with a urine-stained plastic bag, and being left by his wife, who had grown tired of his shenanigans, Mr. Diapers turned to the pen. During this dark time, he wrote his greatest known work, Ode to the Poltroon, a poetic and heartfelt reflection on his own cowardice and shame.
To avoid being labelled a poltroon, nancyboy, flimsical, etc., Herbert decided to compose a series of opuscules. Much to his chagrin, he later realized that there is nothing manly about a 70 page-long poem entilted “Ode to My Buttfriend.”
