It's a normal day at the palace you work at as a guard when suddenly you and your fellow guards are hit with potions from a random peasant with a...llama? Your friend is turned into a COW. Confused, he asks to go home, the emperor's advisor let's him leave and asks if anyone else would like to. You decline as you've somehow gotten lucky to be turned into a Gorilla so you're good. Then she yells to go arrest the man and llama as they have murdered your emperor as they jump down the water pipe, that you know you won't make. Before you can contemplate, she bungie jumps down after them. Once everything comes to a head you find out the llama WAS the Emperor and his advisor has turned into a cat. You couldn't believe the day you just had.
The real question: Would you rather spend a year as a Honey badger or a lion? Downside is you can't understand anything and are just a normal animal living in the wild until you are changed back, upside is you remember everything that happened in the past year.
I hope you enjoyed, bonus points if you can identify what movie I'm referencing as it is one of my favorites of all time!
