Ben and Zane were excited to enter their Egg-powered Nostalgia Cannon in the General Area Device Generation Engineering Tournament. It would be some pretty stiff competition, what with the robot dogs built by little boys, and the time machines built by little dogs. They saw a little girl crying, holding a picture of a man in one hand and a wrench in the other. She was working on some sort of mannequin, but when she started saying “It’s Alive!” it got up. The Cartoncasters feared for their lives, but this MAD machine was actually completely harmless. The judges loved how well it shrugged, though. Oh well, we’ll get that G.A.D.G.E.T next time.
