Blank Slate

Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

T-Rex: A blank slate.
T-Rex: Anything is possible!
T-Rex: I could fly to the moon!
T-Rex: In fact, let's do it.
{T-Rex is on the moon, with a space helmet. There is a crater on the ground}
Utahraptor: {not in a helmet} Hello earthling!
T-Rex: Utahraptor, what are you doing here?
Utahraptor: Just hanging in the low grav.
T-Rex: How can you speak? It's a vacuum!
T-Rex: HINT: We're not really on the moon.

And that, folks, is how the Apollo astronauts did it.

(The blank slate that was the US Government's chequebook, I mean.)
