    Hi guys!

    I'm making this comic strip about an evil glacier who's on trial for "hanging valleys, truncating spurs and sending tributary water plunging to its death". I need to condense the formation of a corrie down to one sentence. Is the following okay/relatively easy to understand?

    "Glacier: I suppose it was my sheer weight that helped me make that massive hole in him [the glacier's 'father', the mountain] by plucking away rock and sanding down the hollow floor through rotational movement with crushed bits of what were once rocks that I murdered through freeze-thaw weathering" (In the actual comic strip, some of the words are written in bold, and there's a diagram of corrie formation)

    Thanks!

    On a side note, that comic strip sounds fascinating! It would be awesome to see it, when its done
