Rubbery - TP Why the Gnome Slayed the Dino

"He's a million rubber bands in his resilience." -  Alan K. Simpson


RUBBERY
and a silly little tale of

Why the gnome slayed Dino Duo.










In the beginning, through the language of the trees, folk wisdom tells us to abandon such notions of dinosaurs and gnomes becoming friends and any thoughts of them banding together thick as thieves in the same forest.

Everyone knows gnomes are the good guys.

But truth be spilled, at one moment in time they were, best friends.  Ignoring all myths and legends regarding dinosaurs, those large, scaly creatures might not have necessarily disappeared.  Seriously speaking of course.  Except, to save the day, Scotch tape and a goodhearted gnome arrived to the rescue of all things rubber.  The only true survivor of any forest, is a goodhearted gnome packing his scotch tape.




The beginning of Dino Duo's demise began here.





Yep, Dino Duo, caught rubber band handed with all the rubber goods he could muster.




Little did Dino Duo know that the serpent dragon, Scotch tape would soon have him in their sticky clutches.

So ends, the life and thievery and any further treacherous journey of rubber Dino Duo.

Just a hunch ;-)

That's one giant gnome or a very small dino :-). You've just invented your own superheroes saga (sell it to Marvel!).
