You know you're distracted when you let a steamroller crush you.
I think you might be onto something there, perhaps all the little monkey kids aren't the horrible bastards we think they are for leaving their dead comrads lying in the street. Rather than being indifferent to all the bloody corpses they were too concerned about that asshole orville running off with their lunches to notice.....
besides that, shouldn't we maybe give some of the blame for running over the monkey kids to the people driving the cars? especially the steam roller, how hard can it be to stop something going a whopping 400 feet per hour?
