Zach the Giant Killer*

* May not actually involve giants being killed.

Last night, in New York City...

Iconmccaffrey_medium Zach, wake up!

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium mumble-mumble

Wrath_of_fran_icon_medium ZACH, WAKE UP.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium what?! who?! wherefore art thou, Romeo?

Iconmccaffrey_medium We're in New York, Zach. Remember? Tomorrow's the NIT semifinal against Maryland.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium oh

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium Oh crap, was I about to sleep through the game?

Iconmccaffrey_medium no

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium Was I going to miss practice?

Iconmccaffrey_medium no

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium Was I going to miss lunch?

Iconmccaffrey_medium no

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium Was I going to miss the team outing to the Central Park Zoo?

Iconmccaffrey_medium no

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium oh. So why did you wake me up, Coach?

Iconmccaffrey_medium Because I need you to run an errand for me, Zach.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium uh, aren't their student managers for that stuff?

Iconmccaffrey_medium For other errands, sure. But not this one.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium uh, okay. What do you need me to do?

Iconmccaffrey_medium Take Frannabelle Q. Milksworth to the market and sell her.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium ...

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium Coach?

Iconmccaffrey_medium Yes, Zach?

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium Why did you bring a cow all the way to New York City?

Iconmccaffrey_medium I didn't bring just any cow, Zach. I brought Frannabelle Q. Milksworth, my pride and joy.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium ...

Iconmccaffrey_medium And I brought her with us because I wanted her to experience the sights and sounds of the greatest city on Earth. You know, before I sold her for a tidy profit at the market.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium oh.

Iconmccaffrey_medium Take him to market, Zach, and get the best possible price for him -- not a penny less.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium /sighs

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium Okay, Coach.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium stupid cow

Cow_icon_medium moo

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium why am I doing this anyway?

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium this is, like, freshman stuff. Woody should be doing this, not me.

Iconsexycop_medium You!

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium /looks around, confused

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium me?

Iconsexycop_medium Yes, you! Do you have a permit for that cow?

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium um

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium No, but you see --

Iconsexycop_medium No buts, mister. I don't know where you're from --

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium Uh, Iowa.

Iconsexycop_medium Well that figures. Maybe back in Idaho --

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium Iowa.

Iconsexycop_medium Right, back in Ohio --

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium Iowa.

Iconsexycop_medium Easy there, Mr. Broken Record. Maybe back in Iowa, you bumpkins just walk around with cows all the time

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium Well, not real--

Iconsexycop_medium -- but in the big city, we don't abide those sort of shenanigans. So I'm going to have to write you a ticket.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium /sighs

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium stupid cow

Cow_icon_medium moo

Mugger_icon_medium Hey! Hey you there!

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium /looks around, confused

Mugger_icon_medium Yeah, you. Let go of that cow, buddy.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium what

Mugger_icon_medium Let go of the cow. And no one gets hurt.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium wait, really? You're mugging me... for a cow?

Mugger_icon_medium Just let go of the cow and no one has to get hurt.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium uh

Mugger_icon_medium Aw, screw it.

Mugger_icon_medium /stops

Mugger_icon_medium Here's something for your trouble.

Mugger_icon_medium /throws small bag at McCabe

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium Are these drugs? Because, seriously, that's like the last thing I need. I already got a ticket from the NYPD and now you just mugged me for a cow, so please don't be handing me drugs.

Mugger_icon_medium /runs off

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium goddammit. This freaking city.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium /picks up bag, opens it

Magic_beans_medium

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium Freaking beans? Great. Just great. This trip sucks.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium /throws beans into the gutter

Beanstalk_icon_medium KRAKKA-DOOOOOM

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium oh crap

On top of the beanstalk, Zach finds himself in a strange new land. He wanders aimlessly.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium stupid freaking beans.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium stupid freaking city

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium stupid freaking--

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium /hears loud rumbling noise in the distance

Alex_len_icon_medium HMM. ARE YOU SURE? YOU HAVE THE DAZED LOOK OF A TOURIST.

Zach_mccabe_icon_2_medium uh
