Alright, so, imagine you’re sitting there, eagerly awaiting the opening of another brilliant episode of your favourite late-night variety-type fact show: Ben’s Illustrious Fact Show. You put on your illustrious 3D glasses. Cue illustrious theme music. I, your illustrious host, Ben Volchok, come on stage, but… *GASP*… oh no! Someone’s stolen my Illustrious Fact Book! Oh no! How can the show go on?
Join me as I travel all around the world to recover this illustrious source of wisdom and information. Who knows what will happen? Well, I do, of course. I am the only person ever to know everything about everything ever*. But do you know what will happen? Who stole it? Will I get my book back? Why is that cassowary grinning forebodingly? Well. You'll just have to come and find out...
(*even more ever than ever)
