100 Words - Machine War


The declaration of victory by the machines proved premature. Yes, they had superior intelligence, bullet-proof armor and a masterful strategy, but we had millions of buckets of water, acid-filled squirt guns and super glue.

The acid guns were used to damage the rubber seals, then the water was used to short circuit the inner works. The super glue was used to lock their fingers together, which made it hard for them to hold things. The final step was to snap their antennas off.

This was a slow process, but it kept the machines at bay till we perfected the elctroray.
