127. What if Fred the Dog didn’t like sticks?

What do you think would happen to you if you no longer enjoyed your favorite pastime? Well, for Fred, that pastime is… or was… eating sticks. Can he handle losing his life’s simplest joy?

Lessons include: Your favorite pastime can turn into a bad habit if you don’t try other things; it’s okay to indulge sometimes, but try to do it in moderation.

124. What if all of What If World had identical twins?

When Fred catches a “glowed” (think an especially shiny cold), he starts duplicating everyone in What If World with his magical sneezes!
