The Curious Case of Uranium
Uranium's was sitting in his cell one day when the guard noticed he was crying.
"What's wrong?" the guard asked.
"My best friend Plutonium was murdered and you guys are celebrating!" said Uranium.
"Sorry kid, but we sacrifice the few to save the many" said the guard.
The guard walked on as if nothing happened. Over the next few weeks Uranium developed a cold and a fever. The guards noticed this and were concerned that Uranium would give them all radiation sickness. The guards rushed Uranium to the medical bay.
The guards knew Uranium was very unstable, so they restrained him to a medical bed. Uranium couldn't move and was getting angry. Uranium, already depressed that his best friend had died, was now even angrier. Uranium always knew that he had an explosive personality, but so did the guards. The guards knew that under the wrong conditions Uranium could go kaboom, and kaboom he did. Uranium decided he needed to split ways with life, and an explosion caused the entire facility to blow up. Unfortunately for Uranium, he was no more.
