In 1749 George Littel moved from the wide prairies to the small settlement that would later become Mytuwn City. He built himself a log hut by the side of the river, and realizing that commerce would be the wave of the future, started selling time-shares in condominiums that would someday be built in this fair city.
This endeavor was so successful that he was soon stealing acorns from the squirrels in order to eat.
As he sat beside the river, crunching a roasted acorn, one lovely fall afternoon, he suddenly realized that the bank of the river would be a gold mine once someone invented the riverboat. As he mused on the future of the river bank , the word 'bank' sprang back into his mind.
