Joshua Allen's Layer 9 Commentary

Kiss of Doom

Mig brought out the big guns — the BFGs, if you will (you won't) — and put Jessica in a grimy, squalid corner. We have certainly come a long way from our monomaniacal kitties and fuzzy pup-pups and rainbows and shit.

I was right there behind her, shouting FINISH HIM, but she could've gone any number of directions with this, her final volley. She could've, perhaps, gone BABALITY and transformed Mig into a cute little baby, similar to the one that holds my cash and credit cards. Or maybe she could've gone with FRIENDSHIP and just high-fived her opponent, or given him a too-long hug.

But no. She plunged her mouse-strengthened hand into Mig's body, pulled out his spine and showed it to him. What began as an innocent sparring between good friends has become a horrifying bloodbath, sickening to behold.

Now it has fallen upon Mig to deliver his final rebuttal, spine in hand. I don't know about you, but I am absolutely, spectacularly tumescent with anticipation.
