    Angusm you are the Edward Gorey of Halo!

    My daughter had a Sesame Street Grover alphabet book when she was little, in which Grover was bent and twisted into all the letter shapes (he’s apparently very flexible). This is better, though I suppose not for little kids.

    Also, “C” is for cookie, and that’s good enough for me!

    Ewe, at first I thought it was too macabre–until I clicked on the link. Hilarious and clever! I’m not a game guru, which explains my confusion.

    BTW, great poem ANGUSM.

    This really needs to be made into a usable font!

    This made me giggle. Maybe I should go to sleep.

    I’m sure there’s an Edward Gorey/”Gashlycrumb Tinies”-style mashup to be made out of this.

    A is for Arthur, overwhelmed by the Flood,
    B is for Barry who drowned in his blood,
    C is for Charlie, crushed by a Brute,
    And D is for Desmond, who punctured his suit.
    E is for Edward, chewed up by a Drone,
    And F is for Frank, who expired with a groan.
    Glen fell from his Warthog and died on the spot
    And Howard was knifed, bombed and finally shot.
    A grenade fell on Ivan and blew him to bits,
    While John lost his life after multiple hits.
    K is for Kenny – some bastards killed him -
    And L is for Leo, ambushed in the gym
    M is for Michael, picked off by Elite,
    And N is for Nelson, who lost both his feet.
    Ox was a Spartan, but now he’s a smear,
    And Peter got vaporized some time last year.
    Quentin was chopped into bits by a Grunt
    And Roy lost his life on his way to the front.
    S is for Sam, who ran out of ammo
    And T is for Terry, allergic to camo.
    Uther had both his arms ripped from their sockets,
    Vic died when his Hornet was hit by two rockets
    W’s for William, who dropped a grenade
    And X is for Xavier, stabbed on parade
    Y is for Yorick, run down by a biker
    Last, Z is for Zero, killed with a Spiker.

    (Apologies to Halo fans for any errors, and to everyone else for the quality of the verse).
