He is a ten-year-old boy with a common first name and a last name that nobody can pronounce. (For the record, his last name is said like this: Papa-gah-poh-liss.)
What Joey Papagopolis wants more than anything is to do something good that would earn him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. That would be so cool. And cool is something that Joey would very much like to be.
Joey was so impressed with her feat that he even sketched it in his notebook:
After that, Joey tried to beat the world record for balancing spoons on the face. He didn’t expect it to be so hard since the world record was only seventeen spoons:
That made his mother very happy when he told her about it later.
When Joey was in second grade, he talked his parents into letting him have a pet chameleon. He figured if he took him to school, for sure it would up his status on the popularity meter. (For the record, chameleon is said like this: kuh-meel-yuhn.)
After the chameleon stuck out his tongue, the boys thought the chameleon was cool, but Joey… not so much. And the girls thought they were both disgusting. Well, all except Jody Bisbaum, who thought any creature with a tongue almost twice the length of its body was very interesting.
After she saw the chameleon that day, Jody Bisbaum went around sticking out her tongue and trying to pick things up with it. Mostly all she picked up were germs. After being out of school for three days, she stopped trying to be a human lizard.
At least that was what Larry used to do. Ever since Joey and Larry found the BIG RED BUTTON, well … life changed a lot for them both.
It all started one morning before school, when Joey was looking under his bed hoping to find a clean pair of socks without holes in them.
