The Blessed Union
Orel Puppington learns that God doesn't look kindly on the wasteful. After lessons from Coach Stopframe and his father, he sets out with two goals in mind. Orel must stop his own wastefulness, and ensure he doesn't end up the failure his father predicts of him. Will he succeed, or will he upset the townsfolk once again?
Orel is on his camping trip and learns from his camp conselor, Mr. Cartsen, about drinking urine is good for not wasting energy and not losing vitimins. He begins drinking his own urine so he won't waste it, which is prohibited by the "Lost" 14th Commandment, "Thou shalt always clean thy plate and not waste anything, whether thy stomach is full or not."
He brings his urine to school and begins improving in gym track due to its richness in vitamins. His gym teacher, Coach Stopframe, tells the rest of his students to start taking Orel's mysterious new "energy drink". When the students turn to Orel for some, he decides to sell it, leading his school to state championship.
When his father learns this, he forces Orel to tell the truth to the school. After making his public apology, Orel is chastised not because he allowed people to drink his urine, but because he charged them for it when it didn't cost him anything to make.
