Fall Feast

Post by Kevin Anderson » Mon Nov 10, 2008 6:39 pm

Fall Feast
For a hundred generations they waited for the messiah. When she finally arrived her genetically engineered size was commanding. Forming them into platoons, she taught them to hold ranks, and attack in waves; thrusting deadly talons at the enemy’s weak spot – the eyes.

When the butchers arrived to begin the annual slaughter, she assembled her troops at the gates, marching them with military precision. They held positions, waiting for the messiah’s signal - the signal that would start a revolution. This year they would not go gently. This year no human would be thankful. This year the turkeys would feast.

Yeah, I know that was stupid.

But, in an end of days smack down, which would prevail?

The Quack Apocalypse vs. Gobble Armageddon

One day he will look into what a ‘stigmata’ really is; for now, it is his trump card for getting out of work. He simply says ‘stigmata’ and they say ‘shit, hope you feel better soon.’ End of story.

Nojay,

Hmm...

While I appreciate the enthusiasm of the artwork, I can't help but wonder why the turkeys cooked and mashed their potatoes before the meal but are waiting until the last second to prepare their meat.

I just assumed they wanted their meat as fresh as possible, organic, natural, free-range humans.

What struck me as odd about the artwork was, why do the males all look like mobsters.

So which would take mankind down faster, Quack-apocalypse or Gabble-a-geddon? They both seem pretty fowl to me.
