The Rage of Eyjafjallajokull

That's what makes nature so special:

At the time in our lives when we've finally remembered the spelling and pronunciation of the names of the wild scene unfolding within our immagination -- y'know, the one where QB Asoteletangafamosili Pogi fakes the handoff to Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala before floating a pass into the right flat to Tshmanga Biakabutuka as linebacker Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila closes in -- nature's raw power kicks in and Asoteletangafamosili Pogi, Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala, Tshmanga Biakabutuka and Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila have no choice but to yield.
Asoteletangafamosili Pogi ... was nowhere near
Eyjafjallajokull when she erupted (so he claims)

Nature ... it evolves and re-evolves and de-evolves and un-resolves -- but, through it all, no matter the full-scale fury and ferocity featured by the Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajokull should've known that it was futile to tangle with my little ginger snap.

Eyjafjallajokull tried his/her/its best to knock Aso, CFM, Tim and KGB out of our minds, but his/her/its ash and lava were no match for my sugar plum.

When it appeared as though she might not return from her first trip to Europe sometime until Memorial Day, the kid worked her magic and got herself home from Paris.

Nature balanced itself out ... which is interesting, given that Asoteletangafamosili and Fuamatu-Ma'afala can trace their ancestry to the the islands not far from Krakatoa.

And, hundreds of years ago, the Biakabutuka and Gbaja-Biamila tribes of the dark continent prayed regularly to the mighty Kilamanjaro.

Eyjafjallajokull ... it cannot touch Krakatoa and Kilamanjaro.

And, Eyjafjallajokull cannot match Tuiasosopo! Manumaleuna! Onyenegecha! Loliki Bongo-Wango!

However, when "Katla" blows her top and makes Eyjafjallajokull look like a birthday candle on top of a birthday cupcake, well ... run for your lives, Asoteletangafamosili, Fuamatu-Ma'afala, Tuiasosopo, Manumaleuna, Biakabutuka, Gbaja-Biamila, Onyenegecha, Loliki Bongo-Wango ...
