The Dinosaur Story by esere826: 4:07pm On Aug 15, 2014
FATHER: "My son, I'll tell you a story. Listen attentively"

"By whatever fluke of nature
a prehistoric dinosaur egg hatched in the thick forrests of Africa

The lurch unchartted greens of the wild provided a nuturing canopy for the Dinosaur to grow undisturbed by man
With the passing of time, now standing over 10 foot, the dinosaur became obvious to the human eye

seeking some adventure, it wondered away from the wild into a village

When the villagers saw him they were first seized with fear
what manner of monster was this?

The villagers soon overcame fear, and all they could see was a massive meat on two legs
they banded together with clubs, stones and sticks
determined to make a carving off this new delicacy that must have been sent by the Gods

There was one in the village that had some knowledge
He recognised at once that this was a rare happening.
This beast standing before them was more valuable than being mere meat
he pleaded with them to stop and sought to share this nugget of information with them
the villagers would have none of this
...this was meat on two legs provided by the Gods for their contentment.

And so they killed the dinosaur, roasted and ate it
and with this, they roasted an oppurtunity to be in the annals of great kingdoms."

SON: "father, what does this story mean?"

FATHER: "Son, look around you. The villagers are amed with their clubs"
