by Andrew Kurtz
I have existed undetectable since the beginning of time and will remain so for all eternity.
A meteor didn’t eradicate the dinosaurs as is believed, but the venomous breath emanating from my hundred mouths suffocated the worthless beasts to extinction.
My thousand tentacles dragging the Titanic to its watery grave were blamed on a mere iceberg.
The intense luminosity from my fifty eyes caused the Hindenburg to transform into a fiery coffin, not weather conditions or mechanical failure.
My sights are now set on you. Don’t worry, your demise will be attributed to mechanical issues.
Enjoy your flight.
