A hunter was out for the kill. The mammoth was unaware. Ugah-man was
ready to throw a large boulder at the giant, when a tyranowasp stung him in the
arm, causing him to drop the boulder on his foot...and yell bloody cave murder!!!

wondered what would happen if they fried them again...
great with mammoth stew, but...who was complaining? They gave it a name...
