Hercules the Greater wanted to join the chess team. His father insisted on sports. He did what his father told him to do because he always did what his father told him to do. When they were in the third grade Hercules the Greater’s father took his SAAB to Wilson’s Auto Repair. Elrod Wilson – Booger’s father – had never worked on a SAAB, but he didn’t want to look stupid (plus money was always tight for the Wilson family). Despite his best efforts – he only made things worse which prompted Mr. Kennedy to extract some measure of revenge without getting his own hands dirty.
