Claiming to be misunderstood,
the legendary Roc speaks out for the first time
to set the record straight
journalist: so, why is it that you’ve come forward now?
the Roc: I am just so tired of the propaganda and the lies. I want the truth to be heard.
journalist: Do you not block out the sun with your wingspan?
rhe Roc: well, that is true.
Journalist: Have you not lifted an elephant high about the ground and then feasted on it’s broken carcass?
the Roc: This is also true.
journalist: It sounds as though you are merely confirming the legends.
the Roc: typical. you are twisting my words. I never intentionally killed an elephant.
journalist: why lift it off the earth?
the Roc: I like to be helpful. There was a wide river, I was trying to help the elephants across. I will admit something no one knows about me.
the journalist readies pen and paper with excitement
the Roc: I am a bit of a butterfingers. Or maybe I should say butter-talons.
journalist: Are you saying dropping the elephants to their death was…
the Roc: a complete accident. yes, yes, I am. And I only ate their carcass clean because I hate to waste food.
journalist: 3,258 accidental droppings?
the Roc: I haven’t counted, But if you say so.
You’ve heard it straight from the beak of the Roc. Not only is he a murderous monster, he’s also a liar.
