I’m not good with Picture books either. Should I, should I connect it, then rib it? Or should I rib it, then connect It? So This is fatty McGee, this is the fat Screw. We got to stay consistent on the Screws, like that could easily [bleep] us up Like mhmm Ben, when the video’s not on [Murmurrs] So I didn’t think making A phone would take this long. But through The power of editing, I’ll come back and it’s Gonna be done. [Snaps finger] I can’t Believe it, but this actually took 20 minutes To do, and I think we got it It was, kind of easy Matt helped me with the reading, because my Comprehension is trash… We did it! Like, we did it. This is a group project Like, this is all we, this is all we! So it kind of just folds up, like there’s like two Colours you can go with.
