Response to Chick 2A Response to:
There Go The Dinosaurs!
Oh gee, it looks like theres a brand new Chick Tract in the world. This time, Chick is taking it upon himself to discuss things related to dinosaurs and how they met their fate. But as usual, he instead produces another piece of inaccurate kitsch.
The tract starts by having some primitive people, most likely people from the Middle Ages, locating, hunting, and killing a dinosaur; they call it a dragon. The dinosaur thought that itd be safe so long as it made it up to the clouds, but only her head was in the clouds and so she was killed; I find this quite ironic, as Chick himself often seems to have his head in the clouds.

Wait, she realized. I dont *have* an alarm clock. She then sat up and looked at it again. OMIGOSH! ITS ALMOST TEN IN THE MORNING! Utterly horrorified, she quickly got dressed and ducked into the hallway.
In the process, she found herself face to face with a flying pig. She shrieked, then ducked back into her room. She then stepped outside again, only to see that the pig was still there. Whats with the flying swine?! she demanded.
I dont know, Ryoko said, but they sure seem to be all over the place today.
You mean theres more than one? Ayeka turned to look at Ryoko, and was immediately stunned. Y
