v2n5: Harold Gets His Wish

"The combined length of the vertebrae of the dinosaur is directly proportional to the inverse of the square root of the rhomboidal axes of its brain."

"Man!" said Harold. "If I'da known there was gonna be all these instructions 'n stuff, I'da asked fer somethin' else!"

His letter to Santa had stated very clearly, "I wanna brontosaurus — a REAL one." Now, his bedroom piled high with huge dinosaur bones, he could barely find his Transformers and Buzz Lightyear action figure.

"HARrrold!" his mother shouted from downstairs. "You have another present down here!"

"Oh, no ... " Harold moaned. "Not the roller coaster ... "
