What’s That Brittle Cracking Sound?
BY Jason Ross
A monkey demolishing a rattan chair?
A mummy playing soccer?
A little girl breaking the seal on a pint of Teachers?
A man enraged by his woman’s deception stomping on the stuffed marlin from their honeymoon?
The moment that no one on the football field will ever forget?
A bear returning to the skeleton of a camper he mauled long ago and crushing the bones for marrow?
Ice cubes bursting in a gin and tonic?
Sappers in the wire?
An alien creature emerging from its encrusted egg sac?
Gary Busey wiping his nose?
