Dinosaur Comics Creator Stuck in Skate Park Hole Takes His Predicament to Twitter In Real Life Text Adventure


On August 18, Ryan North, the creator of Dinosaur Comics, took his dog Chompsky for a walk around a Toronto skate park. It was raining when North went take a photo of Chompsky in the bowl and he subsequently found that they were stuck with no feasible means of egress. So North took to Twitter and posited a “hypothetical” question as if it were an interactive text adventure game.

Several of his followers responded with well-meaning suggestions.

North finally found the solution with a great idea suggested by Nicole Hoye.

Once out, North had some choice words for the hole.
