The 3 Ompah-Lumpahs

Once upon a time there lived 3 Ompah-lumpahs in a far away land called 'Wonka Ville'. They lived in a dusty worn out cottage with their Mummie-Ompah. Their names were Dr. Urkle, Wurkle and Purkle.
Mummie-Ompah was getting tired of picking up after them, cleaning everything they touched and slaving in the kitchen!!

So she told them to get a job and a new cottage! "I won't be around for ever so it's time to move out! You're big enough now. You are 293 and ¾ years old!!". So they packed their bags, said good-bye to Mummie-Ompah and went out in the big world. They all got jobs in the 'Wonka Factory'

They looked every where for that perfect cottage, but it was either too small, too big or it cost too much. So they decided to make their own cottage. They made out the plans, saved up all there money. It took them a while to build it. When it was finished, all could see that it was made a chocolate!! (But little did they know that it would melt with heat!!).

That next morning they went to work and when they came back it was half melted and eaten. They were very upset. That next day they took out a loan and Dr. Urkle and Purkle went to work while Wurkle worked on the cottage. It took 5 days and 8 hours and 7 minutes to complete the cottage. They had finished making ginger-bread cottage. (They should have learnt from the other mistake that you shouldn't make a house out of candy). That night as they went to bed it started to rain heavily, when they woke up the ginger-bread cottage had dissolved. They were left with nothing. So they decided to make a brick cottage. They finally got it right. It was lovely just as they pictured it. They decided to have a cottage warming. They invited their Mummie-Ompah and their boss Mr. Wonka and their new neighbours and all their friends. Every one wanted their cottage like the Ompah's. They left the Wonka factory and made a living out of building cottages. They were very successful. They made loads of money and they lived happily ever after in their cottage…..

The End…..
