Synopsis: Donít Hug Me, Iím Pregnant takes place in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota, in a little bar called "The Bunyan," owned by Clara and Gunner Johnson. Clara is 8 1/2 months pregnant with their first child, and today she's looking forward to her baby shower, getting lots of presents, and taking a break from her raging hormones.
Suddenly, a freak snow storm, a "tsnownami," hits Bunyan Bay and they find themselves snowed in. No one can get in or leave. Gunner's worst nightmare comes true when Clara goes into labor and he realizes he may have to deliver the baby in the bar.
