You are Ravioli Balbioni.  You are an oarsman in Venice Italy. Everyday you travel the waterways of Venice on your gondola transporting goods and people through the narrow canals of the city.  One day you are having lunch with your fellow oarsmen you hear a rumor that...
While you are in class your teacher speaks to you. "Ravioli, may I see you for a moment?"
"Yes, Mama."
"Ravioli, you are a very bright boy. I have no doubt that one day you will be a great artist, but right now you are in my class and need to pay attention.
> You say "Mama, one day i want to grow up to be a great oarsmen."
Mama smiles. "One day, you may very well be, but for now sit down and pay attention to your class."
You are drawing dick shaped gondola oars in your notebook.  Your Mama notices and forces you to bring it up and show the class. The other kids laugh at you and for the next few hours you feel like hiding under your seat.
> You run to the canals after school and sing a sorrowful tune. The people riding in your gondola love it.
As you sing, people crowd around your gondola and begin tossing money at you. You make enough money to buy milk and....uh.....bread.....and some meat for dinner.
Your Mama finds your "Bread" and wants to have a talk with you.
"Ravioli, where did you get this bread?"
"Oh that? I earned it singing for the people on their gondola rides."
Your Mama looks concerned.
Your Mama smashes the bread with a hammer.  She yells at you, "You never take the bread from strangers, how many times must I tell you!!!" Your Mama buries the bread in her garden and leaves the house.
You realize you are no longer hungry.
You are Ravioli Balbioni. You are an oarsman in Venice, Italy.
> You run away from home to live on a Gondola.
You run away from home to live on a Gondola.
You are a very bright boy.
You are in your Mama's class.
You are drawing dick shaped gondola oars in your notebook.
The mayor of Venice hears about your singing and hires you to be his full-time oarsman. You make enough money to buy milk and....uh.....bread.....and some meat for dinner.
Your Mama finds your "Bread" and wants to have a talk with you.
> You say, "fuck you Mama, I eat whatever bread I want to eat!  I'm a grown ass man, I'm going to live with the Mayor now!"
Your Mama looks concerned.
Your Mama smashes the bread with a hammer. She yells at you, "You never take the bread from strangers, how many times must I tell you!!!"
> You leave home and live on a Gondola, singing to strangers for money.
Eventually you find a Gondola with no oarsmen. You grab the rudder and begin singing to the people riding in the gondola. They toss coins at you.
> You earn enough money to buy your own gondola. But instead, you buy a bread store.
You buy a bread store. You begin eating too much bread. You get fat.
You are fat and you have no friends.
> You get so fat, you can no longer ride your gondola.
The people of Venice laugh at you and throw rocks at your gondola.
They break your windows and shatter your rudder.
You try to swim away, but the weight of your fat holds you down.
You see a hand reach out to save you and you recognize it's Mama's hand.
She drags you under the water with her.
Mama guides you through a secret underwater tunnel to safety. You find yourself in an underground city. It is there you live the rest of your life, safe from harm.
You are forever in Mama's debt.

You reached "THE END"
