A group of kids run out for recess. They play ball and chase each other
around. A big kid, named Bully Bob, enters. He is surrounded by a gang of groupies who
agree with everything he says. Bully Bob starts bullying the other kids. He pushes a kid,
steals someones lunch, and kicks a ball out of the yard. When Bully Bob raises his
arms to show off his muscles, the groupies around him almost pass out from the smell
coming from underneath his arms. They cover their noses and stagger briefly as their eyes
water. Bully Bob sees David, a.k.a. Little D, and starts to taunt him for being a

Little D tries to hold in his anger, No, no, Im not going

Bully Bob taunts him, Thats what I thought! Youre

Little D finally blows up, Alright, Bully Bob, youre on!

Little D says, Youre on Bully Bob! But lets lay down some
ground rules. Bully Bob agrees. Little D says, No punching below the

Bob agrees. He lifts his arms and says, Alright! People start to swagger and
pass out. Little D say, And no lifting your arms above your shoulders. Bully
Bob agrees and everyone breathes a sigh of relief.
The kids separate on the playground. Bully Bob does a series of
exercises to get ready for the fight. He does jumping jacks, push ups, and lifts a couple
barbells. His groupies cheer him on as they struggle to breathe during his jumping jacks
exercise. Meanwhile, Little D goes to the other side of the stage and kneels in prayer.
Moments later a school bell rings. Bully Bob faces Little D and yells,
Alright Little D! Come on out and fight like a man! His groupies gather around
and cheer him on.
Little D stands and approaches Bully Bob and says, Come and get
Bully Bob growls and charges Little D shouting, Im gonna
beat the snot out of you, you little weasely Christian! As Bully Bob swings wildly,
Little D ducks a punch and grabs Bully Bob around the waist in a tight bear hug. Bully Bob
yells, Let go of me you little runt and fight like a man!
Little D smiles and says, I cant Bully Bob, I love you too
much! You can hate me all you want, but Im gonna LOVE you! And theres nothing

Bully Bob screams, Let me go! Stop it! Stop it!
Little D smiles and says, And another thing Bully Bob, GOD loves

Bully Bob cries, Stop it, stop it! Youre hurting me! Stop
it! Bully Bob begins to weep. Little D lets him go and Bully Bob falls on his knees
crying, Nobody ever loved me before! Everybody hates me! How can you love me anyway,
I really stink!?
Little D puts his hand on Bully Bobs shoulder, Its
easy to hate. Its a lot harder to love. But thats what Im going to do,
because thats what it means to be a Christian. I love you Bully Bob just the way you
are, and God does too.
Bully Bob says, Thanks Little D! He raises his arms to give
Little D a hug. The groupies back away in fear from the rising stench. Little D says,
Uh, no, no. He gently pushes Bully Bobs arms back down and says,
Youre the one who needs a hug today.
Bully Bob rises and throws his arm around Little D and says,
Lets go play ball!
Little D says, Uh, what do you say, you go take a shower
Bully Bob says, Okay, little buddy! They exit arm in arm.
