Really Really Big

Feeley whistled when he gazed upon the massive edifice of stone. It rose three stories easily.

“Yes,” said Warwick. “We built this as a safe haven for whenever the alien walkers attack.”

Feeley nodded solemnly. The alien Farnuche fielded war machines the size of office buildings. They pulped everything beneath their gargantuan feet. Anything that protected people from them had to be massive. Feeley felt that perhaps humanity gained hope with facilities such as this one. He squinted at the winding trench the edifice was built from. He said, “It must have taken a lot of work to build this trench.”

“None at all!” grinned Warwick.

“So how did the trench get here?”

“Why, this isn’t a trench. It’s a foot print!”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

  1. Hah! I have this vision of a tripod hopping around trying to scrape people off the sole of its “foot”… 🙂 Have you seen ‘The Great Martian War’? Giant walking tripods in WW1! Check it out if you haven’t – it’s very cool: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CvFjetZ5lQ

    Maybe things don’t need to be too big. Remember how much a lego can hurt when you step on it.
