In the exciting conclusion of this story series, we find Paolo el Pimiento outside of El Corral Dorado, lamenting the imminent deaths of his friends. As he sobs in the bushes, a gardener comes by spraying a strange substance. It smells so wonderful that Paolo decides to take a little taste. With each bite he takes, more and more muscles begin forming, he grows bigger, and he grows taller. He is overcome with the confidence needed to rescue his friends. He bursts into the restaurant in an act of pure vegetable heroism. He begins lifting tables, throwing chairs, and walloping vegetarians. The humans who had come to El Corral Dorado to feast flee in horror. But, it's not over yet!
