I will admit that Fooly and AndrewMadler are one in the same, but that last two are not (I didn't want people making an account with my actual name). This was a group effort, and my comrades spinningobo, idontgetit777, and moolahdiamond all contributed in one way or another (for example, the alternative voice during the third frame). Apologies for the confusion :(

WRONG so many plot holes. #1: They turned into Claws, yet they were dinosaurs. #2: Andrew and Matt's good friend, Colin died, and all they could think of was Track & Field? #3. When he [Colin] was revived from the dead, he didn't know who Matt and Andrew were until they said "We are matt and andrew" #4: No explination to why they weren't changed back into people the first time, yet the second time, they were easily transformed into people again. Reasoning needed. C- See me after class young man
December 27th, 2007

How facile. Clearly the retransfiguration could not take place until the protagonists had accepted the roles they found themselves occupying. Notice that they feast upon the flesh of their fellow creatures, witness the cycle of death and rebirth typified by Colin's journey before they may transgress the boundary back into humanity. The piece is deeply symbolic of cyclic heroes journey's told throughout the age that start and end at the same state with a series of trials in between. Better than LOTR and The

Odyssey. You fail at symbolic meta-narrative.
December 27th, 2007

RIGHT on so many plot patches. #1: They turned into Terrible Claws, which means they turned into Deinonychus. #2: Colin died and they wanted to get the hell out of there. #3. Zombies frequently experience memory loss just after being revived. #4: It's a MAGICAL rainbow rock. A+ Here's a publishing grant young man

The Conflict was a little sketchy at certain points in the story. There were to many times when I did not see the Motivation behind the 3 protagonists. For example: When they were turned into "Claws" no reason is given for the three of them continuing to move forward even though they were now presented with the opportunity to head back into town and eat people.

More like Dino CRAP. The only thing epic about this was the part where Chuck Mangione ate that whole platter of chili fries without blinking. Awesome. +1 for Chuck Mangione.

A little boy wrote a good story for a second grader. Then someone else read it out loud, choosing to emphasize words and sentences to make it sound even more poorly written than it actually was. Where's the funny? God, I hope this doesn't become another How to Prank a Telemarketer. At least HTPAT was funny the first time I heard it.
