Because of the popularity of my snippets ( Very heavy sarcasm folks)
I have once again graced this blog with another entry.
Sometimes, I just want to write what I like.
It was another exciting day on The Star Ship Galaxy.
Captain Girdle Toupee was sitting in the captain’s chair gazing out at the stars as they whizzed by.
His first officer, Mr. Spocket, looked gravely at the captain and said, “Sir, I do believe we are in for some turbulence due to it being called for in the script.”
“Not another camera tilt?”,the Captain groaned.
“I am afraid so, sir”
“Alright then everyone find something to hang on to!”
“Sorry to interrupt captain”, butted in Uheardof, “but we are receiving a number of distress calls!”
“They will have to wait until after the camera tilt”
“Okay…. here it comes-hold on!”
“Okay, Uheardof, about those distress calls.”
“Well, captain they must have been related to the camera tilt , because the distress calls have all vanished.”
“Why does this have to happen every time there is a camera tilt?”, inquired Captain Toupee .
Suddenly, Spotty, the engineer appeared and exclaimed, “Captain, I don’t think the engines can take another camera tilt ! There has been 3 bloody ones in a row!”
“Take it up with the script guys!’ , snapped the Captain, angrily.
The scene: The Mayflower
The time: A long, long, long time a go.
“Well, Mary Kate how goes the voyage with thee?” asked Bishop Turtledrop.
“Besides the baby puking on my dress, the bad food, all the sickness aboard the ship , the overcrowded conditions, the fact that we women have no rights, and that modern toilets have not yet been invented?”
“Yes, I mean besides all that.”
“Pretty good so far, I thank, thee most honored bishop.” , said Mary sarcastically.
“Good, good carry on”, said the clueless bishop,”Pray, excuse me as I believe I must vomit over yonder rail.”
Singedbad the sailor was ready for anything!
After, defeeting the 7 footed podotropomus, he knew he could handle anything this voyage would throw at him.
It had been 69 days 11 minutes since his uncle Goofyus had sent him on the quest to seek for the land of a million golden apples.
These were not ordinary apples, but apples that possessed healing properties, said to even raise the dead, if the dead had not been dead too long.
Singedbad was becoming discouraged they had been to many islands with no success at all!
In fact a third of his crew were dead and buried!
They had found many apples ,but no matter how soon after Singebad had slain a sailor- the apples did nothing to revive him!
“Oh, well”, thought Singedbad, “only 12 more islands to go!”
