Twiddle watched as the four young men excitedly ran into the entrance foyer of his factory. He had hand-picked them — including one who he knew was altruistic and worthy of the grand prize, a key spot helping run the Twiddle Sweets Factory!
But Twiddle smirked as he thought of the traps he'd put ahead for the other obnoxious young men- selected for their vices. There was Blaine — the loud, brash gum chewer, with tousled brown hair, blue eyes, a handsome face and a muscly build. As Twiddle handed out "protective suits" for the factory tour, he threw the stretchy blue jumpsuit Blaine's way (who eagerly went to try it on).
The next suit- a shiny brown one- went to Dan, the chocolate glutton. With a cute but pudgy face and wavy blonde hair, Dan took a quick break from eating to change. Normally someone that out of shape would be self-conscious of wearing a spandex suit, Twiddle thought, but Dan seemed to almost be proud of being so chubby.
Finally came Gus, the champion drinker. At their college, the bearded, black-haired Gus had won quite a few beer-drinking contests, giving him quite the beer belly. Even so, as Gus changed into his bright pink spandex suit, Twiddle could tell that he hit the gym and had some good-sized muscles (not to mention a booty to boot!).
As a pair of orange-faced, midget workers began to lead the young men to the first stop on the tour, Twiddle smiled devilishly at what was to come. "They're all going to learn a lesson," he thought...
Dan was the first one to fall into a trap, slipping into the river in the Chocolate Room as the chubby boy leaned down to drink the chocolate. The plump young man tried to swim to shore but got sucked up one of the giant glass pipes.
Dan couldn't help himself, greedily gulping down the delicious liquid chocolate as he traveled higher up the pipe. As an impossible amount of chocolate pumped into Dan's stomach, his wide booty became lodged in the pipe.
The gang watched from below as Dan pumped himself fatter and fatter full of chocolate, his belly growing and filling the space below his rear end more and more. Just when it seemed the chocolate pressure would blow the pipe, Dan's round body shot up through the pipe, out of the Chocolate Room...
In the Inventing Room, Blaine had fallen into the next trap. He snatched a stick of experimental gum from Twiddle's very fingers, chewing even as people protested that he was beginning to turn blue.
"I feel funny!" Blaine said, continuing to smack the gum as his body began to inflate. The blue suit expanded like a taut layer around his body, each chew making him blow bigger, rounder, and juicier until he was a full-blown blueberry.
As Blaine waddled, continuing to chew the fabulous gum, Twiddle's orange workers came over to get him to the Juicing Room- his loud smacking was the last thing they heard as he was rolled away...
Finally, Gus fell into the last trap in the Fizzy Lifting Room, downing a bottle of the soda pop before Twiddle could stop him. His glee at starting to lift off the ground turned into shock as his belly began to swell, lighter than air, followed by his rear end.
As he flapped his arms and legs, his extremities started to bloat up too. The boy found himself slowly swelling into a giant balloon, his now round figure drifting upwards closer, closer to the spinning blades.
Luckily, the pressure inside got too intense, and he started to belch- making him slowly float back to the floor. Even as he settled to the floor, Gus remained a giant pink ball, his round body hopping as the workers led him down the hall...
Twiddle rubbed his hands with glee in the exit foyer. The winner of the factory was back in his office with the paperwork, but now he got the fun task of gloating at the three young men who had failed the various tests he'd placed throughout the factory. One of the short orange men — this one serving as Twiddle's assistant — walked up to him.
"Well, it's time to see the unlucky ones!" Twiddle chirped. "With any luck, they've each learned a lesson!"
Twiddle's assistant murmured, "So I need to tell you, things didn't go exactly according to-"
He was cut off by a loud thumping sound. Dan was the first one to exit. Still clad in his brown bodysuit, the young man had popped through the pipe into the room above the Chocolate Room, then got stuck in the intake where the creepy orange midgets had found him guzzling down chocolate. Somehow he had managed to ingest the strange, special chocolate- and put on serious bulk. Dan must have had a waist the size of a hula hoop, with a giant blubbery gut and round, flabby butt cheeks to match. His face had fattened up quite a bit, and his suit stretched out to accommodate his new girth.
"Twiddle... that was some GOOD chocolate!" Dan sputtered as he waddled into the room. The floor shook slightly with each step he took, but Dan didn't seem to mind his new weight. Covering his now-dry spandex suit were pieces hardened chocolate, making the boy look like he was a human truffle who had just burst out of his shell.
"How is this possible?" Twiddle looked at his assistant. "He shouldn't have been able to drink so MUCH!"
The assistant shrugged. "Dan just WOULDN'T STOP! I didn't think it was possible but as the chocolate kept pumping, he kept downing it like a glutton that I've never seen!"
Dan picked at the hardened chocolate. "That was the best damn chocolate I've ever had- I can still taste it now! I wish you hadn't stopped it pumping, more and more in my mouth," he said, nodding his fat face excitedly.
Before he could finish his thought, Blaine came lumbering out. He had been juiced and was able to walk on his own, but some of the side effects were permanent. His arms and legs had regained some of their muscle definition but were definitely bulkier. His midsection was now the size of a full exercise ball and just as taut, giving him something to rest his arms on. As he turned around, they saw that his plumped up legs led up to two beach ball-sized booty cheeks, helping balance out his bloated belly.
And even as they'd managed to squeeze most of the juice out, Blaine was still ripe and a bright shade of blue, almost the same color as his deep blue bodysuit that hugged his body perfectly.
Twiddle leaned over to his assistant and said "What happened? Didn't the juicing process work? He shouldn't be this big, and this blue still!"
The assistant rolled his eyes. "We couldn't stop him from chewing the gum! When we've tested it in the end, once they go full blueberry, they end up spitting out the gum. But Blaine wouldn't stop, he kept chewing and chewing, even blowing bubbles! By the time we got him to the Juicing Room, the effects had started to become more permanent. We finally got the gum out, but not in time..."
As if on cue, Blaine smirked and stuck a blue hand into a pocket and produced another stick of gum. "Those weird orange guys took away that awesome blueberry gum, but luckily I brought some extra," Blaine said, chomping and smacking away. He blew a big pink bubble that both stuck out from his blue face, and mirrored his still semi-inflated body.
Twiddle rolled his eyes. "Didn't you learn anything? I would have expected you to give up bubble gum after that!"
Blaine just smiled in between gum smacks, and blew another giant pink bubble. "Are you kidding me? I'm the world's first blueberry boy! That was AWESOME!" As if to punctuate, he slapped his taut, blue belly.
Dan lumbered over, his giant belly bouncing, as he scratched his head. "So that's not fat in there?"
Blaine popped another bubble. "Nope, I think it's juice!" He smiled as he waddled around for them to get a good look. "I'm round and juicy just like a blueberry!"
Dan leaned in to get a better look, and his belly bumped Blaine's, as some of the hardened chocolate cracked off of Dan's belly. The fat boy grimaced. "I'm wasting chocolate! We need to get out of here so I can get even MORE, I'm starving!" he moaned, grabbing his wildly bloated form.
Blaine twirled his gum on a bright blue finger. "Me too- this is my last stick of gum!"
Twiddle shook his head disapprovingly. "I would have thought you'd each had your fill of chocolate and gum!"
Dan's plump face shook. "All I can think of is how delicious that was... in that pipe with nowhere to go... swallowing ALLLLL that chocolate..." he trailed off and he picked a chunk of hardened chocolate off the gleaming brown bodysuit that covered his fat bloated form, shoving it into his mouth.
"And why would I want to STOP chewing gum??" Blaine petulantly demanded in between smacks. "That experimental gum tasted dee-LICIOUS! Those idiots tried to juice me but luckily some of those side effects were permanent." Blaine blew another giant bubble that popped on his blue face, which he sucked back into his mouth and started smacking again. "I could feel myself blowing up, my body slowly inflating just like a bubble gum bubble, but full of ripe, juicy blueberries!"
Dan stomped a fat foot. "Let's get Gus so we can get out of here!"
Finally, Gus slowly hopped out. His limbs and midsection were just as swollen as Blaine's, but without any muscle definition- just inflated like a balloon. Just like Dan and Blaine, his pink spandex bodysuit fit like a charm, hugging his bloated body magnificently.
The effects of the fizzy lifting drinks had subsided somewhat, but the boy was still just barely heavier than air. Each step, the swollen boy bounded and floated in the air before coming down on the other foot a few seconds later. Almost every step, Gus let out a deep belch, though none of them seemed to make him any less bloated. The boy settled to a stop next to Dan and Blaine, who was still smacking and chewing his gum.
URRRRRRRP:: Gus let out another giant belch, shaking his bloated body. "I think... BURP... they got most... BURP... of it out of me... BURRRRRRP" Gus managed to say to the boys.
His hands rubbed his bloated belly as he kept letting out burps every few seconds. Twiddle's eyes grew wide and he turned to his assistant again. "HE doesn't look like he got all the air out!"
A frown crossed his assistant's bright orange face, and he sighed. "Gus just wouldn't burp until he couldn't control it any more. We kept telling him to burp, but he was holding it in as he blew up like a balloon. Eventually the pressure got too much and he began uncontrollably belching, but by that point his body had inflated so much that he was stuck like this!"
Twiddle turned back to the belching Gus, who he could see trying to hold in his burps. "Maybe if... I can keep... holding it..." he said to the others, "I can get... even... BIGGER!"
The look on Gus's face strained as he tried to keep the belch in. Eventually the pressure became too much, and Gus let out a window-shaking BURRRRRRRPPPPP that lasted for ten seconds straight.
Blaine popped his bubble in his mouth and laughed. "Gus, you're a giant balloon!"
Gus rolled his eyes in between belches. "Look who's talkin-UUURRRRRPPP"
Blaine smacked obnoxiously in response. "I'm a BLUEBERRY, not a balloon!"
Gus burped and smiled. "So does that mean... URP... that you're jealous?" He rubbed the shiny pink suit covering his belly, and waddled over to his backpack. "I need... BURP... some soda pop!"
Twiddle's eyes went big. His assistant said incredulously, "You want MORE? But you're already blown up like a balloon!!"
Gus smirked and let out a deafening belch. "Those fizzy lifting drinks gave me a taste for it! BURRRRP... besides, look at how high... URP... I can go!" Gus started jumping, bouncing his inflated body up into the air. Even the other bloated boys couldn't help but stare as he seemed to hang in the air with each leap, floating like a balloon.
"You're not heavy at all!" Dan said, his mouth full of chocolate.
Blaine stared in awe. "Dude... ::chomp chomp:: ... that's awesome ... ::chomp chomp:: ... you're a freaking BALLOON!"
Gus bounced to a stop and smirked. "I guess Blueberry Boy over there really IS jealous!" He belched loudly again, then smacked Blaine's enormously plump and juicy booty playfully. "Just teasing... BURRRRP... c'mon my blimp bros... URP... let's get out of here... BRRRRRAAAAPPPPPPP" he finished with a long and thunderous belch. Dan and Blaine both noticed that even with his humongous burps, his bulbous body had not deflated one bit.
Twiddle watched the three boys waddling out, their still-inflated bodies gleaming in their shiny suits. Scratching his head, he looked down at his assistant. "I guess they didn't learn their lessons after all..."
