Peanut’s Attack

I am Peanut as you all now and I’m the going to attack the Smith’s house with an army of 1 million clones of me armed with potatoes guns and potato tanks and that is how I’m going to destroy this home. Step 1 is to ambush the home. Step 2 to attack the backyard defences with the potato division. Step 3 roll out the tanks.

I’m Larry the security guard of the house and fight for Smith House and I’m going to fend of Peanut’s attack with a water bomb and an army of the kids friends.

“Battalion attack”.

“Your never going to get through”, sneered Andrew. Pointing his Nerf Gun at a Peanut’s head.


“Charge, pea man, for peanut, random splash”.

“Oh yeah well I set up a trap to defeat your army, friends get those peanut brains”.

“We got 1 million men to unleash on your house”.

“Your still not gonna win”.

“Unleash the tanks on the house’.

Who! screaks, reddle, raddle.

“Unleash the bomb of Peanut doom and destruction”.

‘Your never gonna destroy me never”.


Another one Bites the Dust plays

“We will fight to the and will not lose peanuts forever”.

Today peanut went phyco in his own personal tank of doom.

This was just play for everyone in fact and they all had fun with trying to destroy each other with there toy’s. They were just playing role play in a silly way like come on how do destroy a house with potato guns.
