'''MILKDUST''' is an animation by Youtube and Newgrounds animator [[https://www.youtube.com/user/deadlycomics1 DeadlyComics]]. In it, a [[ItMakesSenseInContext dinosaur working her shift at a mug shop tells her manager (who is an anthropomorphic cat with a]] ThousandYardStare, [[ItMakesSenseInContext by the way)]] that she’s going on lunch break. Just as she sets off, she suddenly ends up in her manager’s car, and he gives her a bird. And then it begins.
