Under the nose hairs

there is an old toilet plunger. Under the plunger there is a black horsefly. Under the horsefly there is an electric cable cord. Under the cord there is a river of lava.

Under the Devils territory there is a shopping mall Filled with hungry anacondas. There is a movie theater inside the mall and The theater is warmed by venom. -A.J.

So it was dark and I had light eye fish so we saw the fish in a cage and I said a fish should not be in a gage like that so me and my fish was making a plan so I said shark and dolphin, go after octopus man and walrus and turtle and me go get the fish. So octopus man had made water proof animals like a whale, marlin, crab. So told turtle and walrus to help shark and dolphin. So they did. So I got the little fish and I said go to your mother and I help shark, dolphin, turtle, walrus. Then we destroyed the whale, and the crab. SO we had to defeat the marlin. Then we did. So octopus man tried to get away. So I said what and then we put him in ocean jail. Then I go back to my rock. -Donavan
