Yanking the Chain
The chain leading to the sea was massive and ancient. Each link was taller than a man. Real estate tycoon J.R. Fleming considered it an eyesore before his newly completed $2-Billion resort. Four earth-movers, each the size of a house, were poised to drag the chain away.
Fleming watched the work from above. A 7-foot tall man approached him, heavy muscles glistening in the Greek sun. “Great men from the past have feared that chain,” he said.
“So? I am a greater man!” spat Fleming, and strode away angrily.
Hercules shrugged and muttered, “I’m just sayin’, The Kraken hates getting his chain yanked.”
