The First Ribbon

Setting: Big-Top Circus
One day in Big-Top circus, where the smell of candyfloss was in the air, the new manager, Flabbergaster, was thinking of a name for his first show. His first idea had been , ‘ Flabbergasters first show!’ Sadly Nelly the Elephant had said it wasn’t very exciting.
Days past, but Flabbergaster still had no idea what to call his first show. He decided to ask his close friend BabyBearElla. He strode over to her cabin and wrenched open the oak door. ‘Typical’ he thought, because BabyBearElla was fast asleep. “ Sleeping on the job, unheard of!” he said very sarcastically. Flabbergaster yelled the roof down, literally, because a large chunk of plaster fell from the ceiling. It shattered the dressing table, causing BabyBearElla to  wake with a shriek.”Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!” she screamed.
“Calm down Ella!” said Flabbergaster over the noise. After she had calmed down, she said,” I was up all night thinking of a name for the first show. Then, I thought about my ribbon act and how it was our first show. Well, then I put two and two together and came up with the name… The First Ribbon.”

And that is exactly what they called it.
