My first entry to the 2012 MOCathalon!
My category was: 24. The Dog Ate my Homework
Heard that one a million times. But, show us YOUR best reason for not having it to hand in. Did it get caught in the garage door opener? Did you get attacked by a bus full of angry penguins? What's your excuse, mister?
Mr. Troy: "Ok, students, there's the bell! Remember to study for your test on Atila the Hun on Thursday!"
Joel: "Quick, Travis, lets get out of here before he asks about my homework!"
Mr. Troy: "Ah, Joel, one moment please!"
Travis: "Hehehe, too bad. I'll wait outside."
Joel: "Y-yes, s-s-sir?"
Mr. Troy: "Do you have your Coat of Arms homework,Joel?
Joel: "N-no, sir."
Mr. Troy: "And I bet you have a dramatic excuse as to why you don't! Well, get on with it! What's your excuse?"
Joel: "It all happened this morning....."
"I was painting my coat of arms on a wooden shield out in my favorite part of the family Zoo."
"And mum came and asked me to feed the animals."
Joel: "Do I have to?"
Mum: "Yes, now do as you're told!"
"So I fed the pigs their slop...."
"And the fish their flakes...."
"And soon I was done and back to my coat of arms."
"I finally finished it and left it to dry."
"Then I went and grabbed a banana from my bag and was about to eat it when..."
"I had an awesome idea!"
"I ran over to the chimp enclosure and started to tease the silly things with my yummie banana."
Joel: "Mmmmmm.... this banana looks great! Too bad you can't have any!"
"Than I ate it right in front of them."
"Suddenly I had another great idea!"
"I went and grabbed a big stick from underneath a tree..."
Mr. Troy: "Wait, what does this have to do with your homework?"
Joel: "Don't worry, you'll see!"
"Anyway.....where was I.....oh, I know, I snuck up to where the pig was resting and whacked him good and hard on the bum!"
"Then I went to check my coat of arms. It was almost dry!"
"And then, suddenly, out of nowhere, appeared a giant Greek warrior with a huge golden bow!"
"He just hovered there, looking at me..."
"And then all the animals in our Zoo burst out of their enclosures and surrounded me!"
Guardian: "I have been watching......watching....and I have seen all the cruel things you have done to these animals...... And now is the time......FOR PUNISHMENT.....that shield....you have worked hard on it.....working day and night.....working to get it finished.....and now.....now it is complete......Beasts! Devour it!"
"And then all the animals jumped on to my coat of arms and started to eat it! EAT it!"
Guardian: "Do not make me return......because you will lose alot more....alot more...."
Mr. Troy: "So this giant Greek warrior commanded all you animals to EAT your homework?"
Joel: "Yes, sir. Let me get back to my story!"
"Soon the animals started to go back to their enclosures."
"And my Coat of Arms was GONE! Eaten!"
Joel: "And that's why I don't have my Coat of arms here today, sir."
Mr. Troy: "Hmmmm.....I'll let you get away with it just this once. Off you go!"
Joel: "Thank you, sir!"
Later at Joel's zoo....
Travis: "So? Did he believe you?"
That story just flooowwwed so nicely... I was completey absorbed in it! I thought the build had a charming quality that matched the story. My favorite was the GreeK GuardiaN! Lotsa of Luck in the contest! :)
