Dinosaurs Attack: Day Twenty-Three

(Click to view apocalypse-sized scans!)

Even new and improved Super Poly-Grip couldn't avoid an embarrassing incident that lessened his chances at scoring with the new product rep.

You know it's the end of the world when even your ad agency meetings are crashed by the marauding beasts. Is no-one safe from their rampage? Apparently not, as dentures and lives are lost when a window-shopping dinosaur decides to grab a quick power lunch.

Card 44, below, depicts something not seen in this set before, a little monster-on-monster violence. Perhaps it's due to being "blood-drunk" as the back of the card above states; certainly all the alchohol in the bloodstreams of the people drowning their sorrows had some impact on the devouring dinos. Or maybe they were fighting over the scurrying victims that came streaming out of the power plant when they attacked; whatever the reason, their tussle released the nuclear radiation which played havoc with the puny humans, melting the flesh off of their bones in an irradiated conflagration.

Sadly, the "days since last accident" sign will have to be re-set to "0."

It was the moment every media person was warned about:
the news reporter becoming the news.

Bonus: On sticker #7, a little relaxing recreational riding is interrupted by the leathery flapping wings of death, as this lady joins the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow in his ghostly gallops.
