The Hunter and The Quail

Narrator: In the forest there were many quails but the smartest one was the Sage.

2 Quails: Tweet, Tweet!

Sage: Yes, I am the Sage.

Narrator: Then a hunter came.

2 Quails: Tweet, Tweet!

Hunter: Heh, heh, heh. Gonna get a quail.

(hunter hides then throws net on quails)

Hunter: Yahoo!!!

Narrator: The Sage was really dissapointed.

Sage: No, no, no. This can’t do, wait, I’ve got a plan!

(whisper to quails)

Narrator: The next day the hunter arrived!

2 Quails: Tweet, tweet!

Sage: Ready?

Hunter: Heh, heh, heh

(throws net on quails)

Hunter: Yahoo, wait what?

Sage: Fly quails fly!

(quails fly up, then escape net)

Narrator: But then the following day.

(2 quails up and first one hits second one)

Quail 1: DOW! Oof, what was that for?!

Quail 2: Sorry, I didn’t mean-

Quail !:Yeah, yeah,yeah LIAR!

Narrator: Then the Sage left with his family but tje others who argued didn’t. So the next day the hunter came.

(hunter hides and quails fight)

Hunter: Come on don’t fail me now.

(throw net on quails)

Quail 1: Over there, fly there!

Quail 2: Yeah yeah bossy pants!

(quails argue)

Narrator: Then the quails were captured and soon died. So, what do you think was the lesson?

Claws Response to Literature

Have you ever been so scared that you were about to waz in your pants? Well in a book called Claws by Dan Greenburg, this kid named Cody takes pressure and fear to the next level! The conflict is that Cody’s mom is abusive so he ran away, all the way to Texas! It starts out when Cody arrives at the tiger ranch and meets the owners, Sunny and Deke. Then Cody meets the tigers, in their pens, except for Brutus, the meanest tiger ever! Next, a twister hits and Brutus escapes but Cody tames and retrieves him. After that, Cody finds out that Wayland, Sunny’s brother, isn’t really dead. Finally, Deke tries selling the ranch with Wayland but Brutus attacks Deke which sends him to the hospital, foiling their plan. The most heart-pounding part was when Cody’s mom found him at the tiger ranch but he stands up to her and gets to stay. I think what the author is trying to say is that you have to overcome your fear.

The characters here are really interesting to know. First is Cody, a fourteen year old boy who isn’t scared of anything. Next is Sunny, a nice women who can handle tigers any day. After that is Deke, the rough and tough U.S Marine Corp. Then it’s Brutis, the biggest, heaviest, and meanest tiger in the whole ranch who actually bonds with Cody. Last but not least is Cody’s mom. You wouldn’t want her as your mom, she is so mean and abusive.

The main setting where this story takes place is on the Sam Houston Tiger Ranch in Texas. The other settings are Saddlers Creek, the Heartbreak Motel (where Wayland stays), and Arthur’s home (where Brutis was when he escaped).

I think to overcome your fears is a perfect theme for Claws because when Cody went into the tiger pen, he “drained” all of his emotions out. He also overcame his fear when he faced Brutis and tamed him. And when he faced Deke he just ignored all of his scared feelings. And last is when it was Cody vs. Mom! He felt so scared but instead he stood up to his mom.

So, all in all, this book had so much action in it that when you read it your head will explode from all the action! So this story’s theme face your fear, goes 100% with this awesome story. You can even apply this theme to your life because if you do face your fears you’ll be able to confront anything!

Ernie’s Strange Research Report

By Ernesto

Here’s The News
Right now you are going to listen to the most shocking, terrifying, heart-pounding news of the slaughterhouse. The poor little creatures scared to death by all of this madness, people killing these birds just to make a quick buck, the people who try to stop the torture, and all of this blood and pain (this should be a horror movie). All of this happens in the most devastating place of all, chicken restaurants.



Chicken Cruelty
Would you eat it…hmm?!?

This paragraph might be the first but it is the most terrifying (if I were you I would not eat any chicken right now).Let’s say you are going to KFC. You order a chicken tender and when you see it, the tender is thick and sizzling. But then you take another look another look and wonder how the chicken tender was made and now you will find out. Did you know that the employees in the chicken restaurants feed drugs to the chicken and they get so huge that they can’t even move their legs [kentuckyfriedcruelty.com]!? And after that the chicken killers toss the frightened birds in really small coops and they get squished! Also,the chicken’s beaks Get barbecued right off their little faces! Do you know how much that burns [badgerherald.com]!? And the creepy thing is that the workers cut the chicken’s heads off an they put the heads in extremely hot water, sometimes even when the chicken are still alive [kentuckyfriedcruelty.com]! just to tell you, over eight-hundred million of these defenseless birds die a year by this madness! [badgerherald.com]

Why Like This!?

Now that you have heard of the horror the new question is, “DUDE,why are chicken restaurants treating these little birds like this(it’s like feeding a chicken steroids and then killing it for its abs)!?” The reason why the employees do this is because they just want to earn money. The other reason is that the chicken murderers think it’s an “easier” and “faster” way to kill the chicken.[wikipedia.com]


Come On Chicken Lets Go!

So now it is time for the chicken to fight back.I know that sounds strange but sometimes the chicken do take a little revenge on the workers. When the chicken get delivered in cages, the moment a worker opens the cage to kill, the chicken goes ninja status!The chicken immediately jumps out of the cage and they peck on the workers face! They even try clawing the employees on their faces and arms! But eventually the chicken’s revenge doesn’t last long. When the employee gets tired of the fight, he/she will grab a knife and SLASH, the bird is DEAD! [wikipedia.com]

The Rescuers
Help is on the way! 😀

Many, many people were stressed hearing of how these people treat poor, frightened animals. The people who protest are normal people, farmers, and even some of the employees! There is even a group who try to stop the unfair treatment of animals and they are called PETA. PETA stands for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. This group of people have protested for many years. These people try to end all of this unfair treatment of these defenseless, little creatures. They even try to save other animals from being killed. [badgerherald.com]

PETA Fights Back

The most important thing that might help these birds is PETA. T he reason why is because they had made many protests. The way that PETA tries to protest to chicken restaurants is by splattering red paint all over their shirts which stands for blood and the death of animals. They even caught on video some things chicken restaurants do to the chicken. They also dressed Pam Anderson (I think she started this protest) in a lettuce costume meaning that everyone should go vegan. Their only goal is to close down restaurants that serve meat or fish (especially KFC). [badgerherald.com]

No Restaurants Closed?

What’s wrong PETA? Why haven’t any chicken restaurants been closed yet? Well that will be answered here. The reason why chicken restaurants haven’t been closed yet is because these chicken officials (officials of chicken) do not believe what PETA is saying to them. They think the people in PETA are lying about all of those chicken treatments being awful. Even when PETA showed the chicken officials the videos of what happens in the kitchen they still didn’t believe them. And no matter how many times PETA tries to protest, the chicken officials will not close chicken restaurants down. So therefore the chicken officials will ignore PETA and they will keep all chicken restaurants open, doesn’t that suck? [badgerherald.com]

Help The Nation (of chicken)
CHICKENS ARE REVOLTING, Viva la urban chicken revolution

So now you have heard of all of this terror and the people who try to stop this madness. So hopefully you won’t eat so much chicken (besides you would be overweight). I chose this as my topic because I love chicken and because I didn’t want to write about anything else.There is even a computer game called the Super Chick Sisters and that game shows you what KFC       does to chicken and encourages you to join PETA. So all In have left to say is, SAVE THE   CHICKEN!!!

Professor Stuffy Huggy Bear’s Journey

It was a beautiful morning and Professor Stuffy Huggy Bear woke up and started dancing in his room. His room is blue, very messy, and it had a lot of monkey dolls. Then he went to his moms room and while she was asleep he was bouncing on her big, round belly like if it was a trampoline. Then he said “Mom….mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, MOM!””Ugh, what is it?”his mom asked. Then Stuffy said,”Mom, can I go to the circus?””Okay but give me a kiss,”said his mom and then stuffy responded,”NO WAY! That’s until you can fly!” Then Stuffy scampered straight to the circus.

Then,when Stuffy arrives he sees an ice cream cart. Then he remembers that a day ago his friend told him that there was a super delicious ice cream flavor called fudge-filled honey nut flavor. Then he goes up in front of the ice cream man and says,”Yo, give me some ice cream. I want fudge-filled honey nut flavor.” The ice cream man answers,”Oh, I’m terribly sorry we ran out but if you come back later we will have some more.””Oh flickerdoodles,” the professor muttered,”This sucks….eggs. Well I might as well go in the circus tent now, anyways that’s what I came here for.” Then when he entered the fun house, he heard the crowd applauding, he viewed the fascinating performances, and when he felt the seats they were hard, rugged, wooden chairs,then he smelled th stink of animal poop. When he sat down the circus entertainer announced,”Okay, I need a volunteer from the audience to go in this human cannon.””MMMEEEEEE!!!”the professor exclaimed. Then he was picked and when he got in the cannon the circus entertainer wanted to make it more exciting by adding gunpowder, explosives, and fireworks. So when he added them in the cannon, he lit the fire and Stuffy exploded out of the cannon and he flew all the way to space. Then he cheered,”It’s a good thing I don’t need oxygen because I’m a teddy bear!” Then an alien came out of nowhere and said,”Well you are going to dye so bye-bye,” and then it blasted a laser and it exploded Professor Stuffy Huggy Bear’s head and he died.

“ugh,where am I? Wait a minute, I know this place, I’m in HEAVEN! And my head has returned!” Then when Stuffy looked around, everything was golden yellow, cloudy, puffy, and beautiful. He walked by the gate to Heaven and saw the Heaven guard. Then Stuffy went to the guard, the guard demanded, “ID please.””But I don’t have ID, I’m just 10 years old!” yelled the professor. Then they both had an argument and the Heaven guard just decided to kick Stuffy out of Heaven and when he did Stuffy fell all the way down to earth and he broke through the ceiling of a wizards castle.

Then when Stuffy looked around the castle it was dark and strange. There were pictures of the same guy and when he looked behind him it was the same wizard guy in the pictures except now he had a baseball bat. Then the wizard whacked the Professor over and over again and said,”DIE, DIE YOU EVIL SPIRIT, DIE!!!”Then he exclaimed ,”Wait, you have a halo, you’re an angel. Hi, my name is Mr. Bozo, what’s yours?”” I’m Professor Stuffy Huggy Bear .” Then Mr. Bozo remarked,”Hey, do you want to be a teddy bear again?” Then Stuffy yelled,”YES!” So then Mr. Bozo turned him back into a teddy bear and then the professor added,”Oh yeah, I also need to go back to a circus.” Then Mr. Bozo said,”Well you can return the favor by having a sleepover with me.””Oh all right,” said Stuffy.But instead of a sleepover for one night he stayed five nights and he’s gone crazy so then he took a magic wand and sent himself back to the circus.”NOOO!” cried the wizard,”Don’t leave me! I already set up the tea party!” Finally, when Stuffy arrived at the circus, he went straight to the ice cream man and asked,”One fudge-filled honey nut ice cream please.”Then when he got it he licked it and said,”Mmmmm, this is so, DISGUSTING!!!” Then he went back home and he was so frustrated that he banged his head on the door continuesly and when he looked up he saw his mom with wings flying and saying,”I’m flying now so give me my kiss!” Stuffy exclaimed,”WHAT THE….!”

The Dog I Always Wanted

I was six years old when I got my dog,Blackie.My dad was coming home from work.He promised me he would Bring me something very special.When he got out of the car he  was carrying a ball of fur.That was my present,a dog.I was so happy i was going to cry.Then I thought carefully and decided to call him Blackie.
Blackie is black and white and smells stinky when you carry him,even after he gets washed!He gets annoying sometimes.Blackie barks at the mailman like crazy,once he bit the mailman and the man sprayed pepper spray in Blackie’s eyes!!!Blackie is a dog who is really hard to train,he only responds when I call his name!The weird thing about him is that he likes human food more than dog food!Every Sunday he is always expecting a pancake with syrup and a pad of butter on the top.He also thinks That I will give him a chicken wing.Well all I have to say about my dog is that he might be annoying sometimes but he still is somewhat of a good dog.
Now me and my dog Blackie play around in the backyard.I try teaching him fetch or some tricks but he is unteachable (or is he?).sometimes he obeys me when I give him a chicken wing.But mostly he just wants to lay down on the couch and sleep.I wish Blackie could learn some tricks (at least to follow what I say).Sometimes when I lecture him about how he didn’t follow what I said,Blackie starts to cry and his eyes get really big.So then I forgive him but then he continues ignoring me sometimes.
So what I say about Blackie is that he is cute,fun,but he could get you annoyed sometimes.He is a dog that just acts wild.He is constantly wanting human food.He might be stinky ,weigh a lot, and bite sometimes,but he is my dog and I love him just the way he is!

Everyday Heroes We Know

My everyday hero to me is my mom.My mom’s name is Maria R.When she was young she only went up to sixth or seventh grade.She stayed with her parents until the age of 21.My mom never had a job or went to college.Then she got married to my dad and they went to Lawndale.

The difficulties my mom is facing are taking care of us and doing taxes,paying the rent,etc.But the worst difficulty my mom has ever faced was the death of her mother and father.The way she tries overcoming her difficulties is to earn enough money for taxes,the rent,etc.She also ignores me sometimes but I don’t know if that is overcoming her difficulties.She took care of the problem about her parents by trying to forget about it.Well now her big problem is watching out for me!

My mom’s biggest achievement in her life was getting married and owning a house.That is why she came here,to look for a better life.Now she 45 years old and she still is happy with her life.So that is what I have to say about my mom
