The cruel boys began to spin the helpless, upside-down turtle amidst the growing crowd of bystanders, several gasping with disgust. The inhumanity displayed had breached their threshold for decency.
Fortunately, a superhero in the crowd clad in vinyl from his neck down to his toes stepped in to save the little guy.
“STOP! No more of this! How dare you fiddle with a vulnerable creature in such a monstrous fashion? Look! You’ve damaged the shell design!”
“Gee, Testudines Man, we’re sorry. Honest.”
The turtle made a squeaky noise as the superhero held him hidden in the folds of his cape.
