It went unrecorded but Chet went with Frank and Joe to Brazil on mystery. He went out swimming in Amazon, Hardys shouting "Don't, you idiot, it's filled with piranas--MAN EATERS!"
"Well, so
what, I'm NOT a man I'm a BOY!" " Chet responded with Moronic logic. He was soon running screaming with dozens on him gnawing. .
But the piranas all dropped DEAD---scientists concluded something fatal to them in Chet's fat. So they towed Chet the 1,000 mile length of Amazon letting piranas have a bite out of him . Soon the fish that had terrorized the Anazon for thousands of years was EXTINCT!
A HERO in Brazil, if a buffoon in Bayport, Brazilians prepared grand monument to Chet. Chet expected himself in heroic stance and when it was unveiled it was--A BIG ROCK WITH "MORON" CARVED ON IT.
"Hey, is that ALL?" complained Chet...
"Perfect likeness," commented Aunt Gertrude.
