Red Team Conspiracy

First the Red Team huddled:


And when they broke, Rusty walked away laughing:


Were they conspiring?  Just telling jokes?  Just looking forward to a long holiday weekend here in the U.S.?  Actually, they were comparing Bricey’s bravery demonstration to Qannik’s protecting The Herd from the Invasion of the Ski Jacket.  Notice how they stopped talking when Qannik approached?

    I don’t know. Those red ones are pretty funny. Haven’t you heard Ammy’s jokes?

    Honestly, I think Qannik was very brave.

    Okay I couldn’t keep a straight face when I said that 🙂
