Jurassic Park - The Beer Collection! Part V

"Now try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous period. You get your first look at this "six foot turkey" as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity if based on movement like T. rex - he'll lose you if you don't move. But no; not Velociraptor. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side - from the other two raptors you didn't even know where there. Because Velociraptor is a pack hunter, you see, he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force today. And he slashes at you with this - a six-inch retractable claw, like a razor, on the middle tow. He doesn't bother to bite your jugular like a lion, oh no...he slashes at you here [makes slashing motions below the child's chest] or here...[above the groin] or maybe across your belly, spilling your intestines. The point are alive when they start to eat you. So you know...try to show a little respect."

...and brew yourself up a batch of...
