    This is not a pun

    As a reward to himself for ranking up, Jake had bought a gaudy gold paintjob for his T9. But the first time he took the newly decked out ship fuel scooping, the heat from the star caused the paint to blister.

    He took the ship to his local body shop. Shaky Bill explained "Well that's yer problem there... shoddy workmanship. Yer supposed ta gild the metalloy with real gold then apply a heat resistant nano-coating. The cowboy what painted yer ship used a cheap gold paint. It boilt in the heat of the star.

    All that blisters is not gold."

    Blue blood can really cause a mess in the bathroom


    The design married ideas of style, innovation and practicality. The Imperial flagship builders had viewed it with avarice, excitement and amusement. They had immediately banned sales throughout empire space, which meant the design could be used in only one place, by one person.
    While this meant a huge one-off payment, it also stopped the even bigger profits from the open market.
    This resulted in a small change from the smooth round low temperature diamonds in the brochure to a much sharper design in the manufacturing plans.
    The newly invested Lord of the Latrine hoped the emperor enjoyed his new seat.

    Cmrd Pseudonym : Ranking faster

    Cmdr Skiprat chewed on his dongkum branded Panamanian petting nuts,
    He'd been a little under the weather with Dongkum Diphtheria the last few days.
    Fortunately his romantic poem had found him getting together with Soo Doku, and she'd been looking after his every need these last few weeks.
    'you wan more panaman nut mr skippy?' she asked in a thick mandarin accent 'I can bling you many nut'
    Cmdr Skiprat coughed and blew his nose 'I was thinking of something a little more pleasurable' he said nasally
    'for you anyfin Mr skippy, you wan me rank you off in style?'

    A short lived poopy victory

    The little girl start wailing as her mother awkwardly shielded her eyes from the form known as Midden. He really was a misshapen hideous eye-sore of a gargantuan pile of dog excrement, with less charm.
    Hankey was excited.. last thing he'd won was a square medallion with some words, he had used his mouth to remove it from a funny tasting sausage.
    He was so excited that every time he took a step he let out a little peep.
    He stopped walking but the peeps didn't.
    He turned to see how far the trail went but slipped and actually died.

    Yes Kow, You Have To Put Your Fingers In Your Mouth, Go On, Do It .....

    "Man Moo Mays Mopick Miz"

    Simoof interrupted "What are you doing?"

    Psykokow took his fingers out of his mouth "I'm reading Alien's drabble" He put his fingers back in his mouth
    "Moo Mays Mopick Miz Ranking Mup Min Mile"

    "You sound silly, do it properly"

    "My Mam Mooing Mit Mopperly ... Mister Mankey Mows Mooday's Mopick Man Mo Mid Mong Moo Mows Ming Mit Mon"

    Simoof had to interrupt a third time "It still sounds silly and besides Cmdr Pseudonym did this joke two drabbles ago"

    Just then Skiprat joined in "Ullo my saucy sausages, you're now at level two BLALALALALALALALALALALALALALA"
    When you need me, but do not want me, I must stay ... When you want me, but do not need me, I must go.

    Keep'em coming. That especially goes to any viewers of this thread that have never done it before. You write a story of exactly one hundred words and post it in this thread. Your title isn't part of the 100-word count but overly long titles is a real vote loser.

    The story should be set in the Elite galaxy, and should be about "ranking up in style" and/or "bling"

    Post the story in this here thread before around eleven o'clock tonight (22:00 GMT) to guarantee its inclusion in the vote

    Out Of The Fire

    Expectent he stood, gleaming pearlescence,
    Weighted by preciousness, stone and metal.
    Gun drawn and ready, a stance for the fighting
    He waited, with patience thinning and sharp.
    The other was shaken, and hurt, blood beading.
    In search of the prize, this pirate was seeking,
    Aware of the ticking clock of his ending
    And stalling, important, vital to stall.
    The darkness absorbed, a light pearcing deeply,
    The pirate surprised, light footedly fleeting,
    To ship where he launches, dogs to their fighting
    Explosions, ship destroyed, groundwards now slipping.
    The victim of one, would be victim of seating
    Under was crushed, rescuer beaten

    Thanks for all the votes. It may have something to do with the fact that I gave up trying to watch the Drabble show because of the "technical diffculties" <glug glug>. I do seem to do better when I don't show up in the text chat of the show to remind Psykokow of the terrible job he's doing. But then winning isn't everything.

    The Topic for this week is "Quick Fix"





    1. Drabbles must be 100 words exactly (Excluding the title)
    2. Over-use of-hyphens-to keep your word-count at 100 is very amusing but probably not a great idea.
    3. Keep it as clean as you can to suit the family forum rules here, so no frogs attached to anatomical parts.
    4. Only the first 20 entries are guaranteed a place in the (usually weekly) poll.
    5. 1 entry each, you may write as many drabbles as you want, but it is assumed that your first drabble is your chosen entry unless otherwise advised. But please mark Drabbles that you don't want entered as such.
    6. If your drabble is under or over 100 words you will have a chance to correct it before the poll is erected, at this point, your drabble may be DQ'd if other drabbles are available to take its place.
    7. Drabbles must be set in the Elite Dangerous universe (as loosely as you care to make it).
    8. It should try to meet the theme in some arguable way.
    9. If there is more than one theme you must match at least one, but can gain extra votes if you meet more.
    10. It's all for a bit of fun, so enjoy yourself... Enjoyment is mandatory!
    11. If you win, you get to submit next week's Drabble topic, so make sure you post it by 3pm GMT Monday. Or else chaos will ensue and who knows what will happen...
    12. You must big it up and get the Drabble Show over 100 viewers, that would be amazing.
    13. Every winner can be the owner of up to 1 abrakadrabble mug.
    14. No animals were harmed in the making of this series (Simoof is not an animal)
    15. If we get over 25 entries, the potato will host it nude.*
    16. The Title must also now be under 100 words (not including the title to the title)*
    17. Extra points for Kow-tipping.*
    18. Anyone working up a Throf during the show will be asked to politely leave...
    19. Pegging the host is frowned upon unless accompanied by a Panamanian petting zoo

    Sometimes it's difficult to know what constitutes exactly 100 words. Our arbiter is
    www.wordcounter.net
    It doesn't matter if it's right or wrong. Its count is the law.

    So submit your drabbles in reply to this thread, and the first 20 will be guaranteed entry into this weeks poll, and read out on our live Show Friday night.
    Entries close at Random O'clock on Thursday evening (or sometimes if we have 20 entries earlier). All Drabbles submitted up to Friday Afternoon will have a good chance of being read out on the live Drabble readiing show.

    New winners each week now wins a prize ...

    You can always hide a dent underneath a bigger dent


    The galaxy is full of star systems and most of these are described as anarchy.
    The problem with these anarchy systems, wasn't the pirates.
    It wasn't the bounty hunters.
    It wasn't even the unsympathetic system authorities.
    It was the total lack of standards, sympathy or service.
    Take the repair shop in Slough Orbital.
    The system is the home of one of the many famous factions in the bubble. Not that that makes a difference.
    When you ask for a quick turnaround on a simple hull repair, the answer was always the same.
    "I can try hitting it with a Hammer!"

    Title:- A Message to Skiprat

    Alien said to Winnard "Send the message now".
    Winnard Replied " I Can't"
    "Why not" Alien said
    "Every time I put the Commanders name in the going to box it has a fit"
    Alien replied "What is it doing"
    "Every time I put the name in it says Sh-itrat, Skipcat or Sh-ithunt"
    "WHAT!!!!" Alien shouted"
    "Every time I put the name in it says Sh-itrat, Skipcat or Sh-ithunt" said Winnard
    "Go and sit on it then".
    "Ok", Winnard sat on it, then said "It doesn't work now".
    "Turn it on then" shouted Alien
    Winnard said "That's a Quick Fix, it's working".

    T = V divided by DM over DT Multiplied by Moof Variable 1xy

    'What's goin' on' Simoof entered the cockpit munching on a snake sandwich with avocado.
    'failed interdiction' said psykokow you might wanna strap in'
    Simoof pulled out his autopegger
    'In, not on, ya bawbag. We're going to have to run, hitting the boost....'
    <Boost Failed>
    'I diverted the power to the toilets before, used a bit too much paper wouldn't flush...'
    'we're screwed then....' Psykokow paniced
    <Canopy compromised 5 mins of air remaining>
    'Not if I can help it' Simoof stuck his bum into the broken canopy
    'that's a quick fix for the air problem, but now we have negative thrust....'

    Cmdr Pseudonym - Out here in the fields, I work for my meals, I put my throf into my living

    Cmdr Skiprat was drained, his new girlfriend Soo Doku had seen to that.
    The rumour was she could suck start a harley davidson.
    So he was feeling a little light headed.
    The fridge hadn't helped either some four week old sausage stared at him, stiff and furry like a pre-fluffed pornstar.
    The cupboards, empty as hankey's vote column.
    A half used packet of splurge biscuits and a crusty tube of tomato puree.
    It was the junk draw where his luck changed a whole tube of Dongkum thermal paste.
    Squeezing the creamy goodness between his butt cheeks he began to jog.....
