1. The Earthworm’s celebrated as a giant ‘brute of a Mole’ was brought down by a fiendish trap left in the ceiling. Their shouts of joy soon turned into cries of dismay however, as they realized that the dead Mole was so big that it effectively blocked the passage! All was not lost as they still had the escape through to the top. The desolation in front of the Mole is due to a later attempt at removing the Mole by letting off an explosive in front it to clear the way. This succeeded only in blowing down their own door.
2. The Earthworms were not worried however. They knew they still had the above ground exit. Upon reaching it however, their slip sliding slid to a sudden halt. A Mole’s bum was covering the exit. The simple Mole had actually not even noticed the disguised exit and just seen the little indentation as a comfortable looking place to plop down on. He did notice that something was amiss when the Earthworms started struggling to get out though!
