Dead links are common throughout Europe and North America. Although the majority of dead links are hardly ever seen, occasionaly one comes upon one, feeding perhaps on its favourite prey (here). In the Ortum of 20005, the town of Hell in Norway was voted the No. 1 town for Dead Links, with approximately 15,304 Dead Links discovered in that one season. However, these shrank quickly when the Grue army from Germy arrived in 20007. Although most of the Dead Links were eaten, as were the people of Hell, some survived by swimming across the Atlantic and taking root in Reykjavik, where they now continue to thrive.

History of the Dead Link
The Dead Link evolved roughly 3.6 billion years ago in the early Crustaceous. Numbers rose to about 5.2 million per cubic mile in 180,000,000 BC, but declined rapidly in 12 AD due to the rising numbers of Grue. They rose again in Northen Europe in 15006, and peaked in 20005 in Hell. (See above)
Appearance of the Dead Link
The Dead Link has appeared throughout history, most notably in 1098, in Hell, Norway, when a flock attacked an unsuspecting nest of Grues. Spectators gathered to watch the resulting massacre, only to turn and run in panic when the Grues had finished with the Dead Links.
