Frame one of three: A person walks across a college campus, texting, head down. Metal Dad says, "All these people walking around, heads down, texting, heads down — it’s dangerous. They’re vulnerable to attack." His metal friend says, "It’s a campus. So, maybe they trip. It’s not like they’re in danger." Second frame: As the texter looks down, a pterodactyl swoops in and scoops him up in its talons. As blood sprays, the texter shouts, "OH MY GOD, HELP ME!!"    Third  and final frame: Standing near a pool of blood, Metal Dad says, "Nobody told you about the new pterodactyls, did they?"  Metal Friend says, "Being at the top of the food chain was nice while it lasted."
