The fifth re-write is my favourite! 'You attacked him with vehement anga. I would side with our officer Manga.' 'My temper it blew When he yanked her out, too. Like a silly old Orangatanga.' An outstanding collaboration! Kudos to you and Wes, also applause for very entertaining, witty re-writes! Splendid work! Thank you for sharing. Blessings to you both. I look forward to reading your future collab's...

Very interesting experiment. Though difficult to decide but I think final, i.e.,5th is the best.

Wes Vogler seems to enjoy this kind of re-write! Any way it helps readers to think in what all ways, the same incident can be presented with variety! Good attempt!
