On a fine day, a thin yellow puppet and a round, pink puppet sit in the sun. They wonder where they came from. Were they an accident of nature, brought about by a series of possible but improbable events? Did someone create them? They discuss their theories, and think they may have an answer. But just as they settle on a solution, a man arrives who raises new questions.
