    Title “<Sharp intake of breath>” By Honest John 😉

    Look Guv’nah, you fly into Honest John’s Second-hand Ship Emporium and expect me to part exchange that pile of mistreated space scrap you call a Sidey for a ‘Conda?

    I don’t care if you CAN get a brand new one at ‘Utton for 200 creds… it’s not as if you could make it there in that beaten up old jalopy, is it?

    I tell yah what, I’ll give you a good price on that A-Rated Python over there, it’s just had a new purple paint job.

    Tell yah what – I’ll even throw in a “Hutton Orbital Radio” sticker too!

    For Four Franks Makes No Sense

    What follows is an account from "Frank" on events in the Thargoid and Fer-De-Lance bar

    I asked him why he drinks:
    "I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day."

    "Why did you not stop them?"
    "The most important thing to do in your life is to not interfere with somebody else's life.
    First impressions are unfair, because a first impression of somebody is guarded, and you don't know the person.
    She might have mentioned it in passing - we talked of so many things."

    Entries for this week's competition need to be handed in by 11:00pm tonight. So if you want to get your exactly-100-word story (not including the title) into the poll then you'd better get typing.

    This week's subject is "Let's be frank", so a story about some candid conversation would be good, or if you prefer <shoots a dirty look at Kow> you can make fun of a sweet innocent old man

    You too can be Frank

    Have you ever wanted to experience life as someone else?

    Even for just an hour or a day, seeing the universe through someone else's eyes?

    Of you course you have, but it's an impossible dream.

    Until now. Thanks to advances here at NeuroTek, you to can experience how other people live.

    The only question is, who do you want to be today?

    Ever fancied being a rugged explorer? Choose Simon.

    Maybe a mysterious femme fatale is more to your liking? Choose Alien

    Of course our most popular experience is Frank. Who wouldn't want to be a trillionaire playboy bronzed Adonis.

    You Can Be Too Frank

    I gave the NeuroTek neurolliser a go. I played as frank. Everyone in the universe turned into Franks.

    That's it. Entries are now closed. I'll go stick up the poll

    Obviously too late to be included in voting, but thought of this while getting ready this morning, thought I'd include it for a giggle.

    Title: Frank's Frankly Full of Frankfurters (and Fries)

    Frank and Francesca filed in to McThargoids for a fine feast.

    Frank ordered a Frankfurter and Fries. Francesca found her fury which Frank found fearful.

    "What furrows your brow, Francesca," asked Frank.

    "Frank, your obsession with Franks is frankly frightful," Francesca followed.

    "Frankly, Francesca, I find Frankfurters a friendly, flavorful food and fabulous fare for fine feasting."

    "Fine feasting! Foolishness. Frankfurters flatly fail to fit fine feasting features!"

    Flabergasted, Frank fought on. "Frankfurters are fitting fare for festive feasting."

    "That will be five Francs," said Francis the French cashier.

    "No one has used Francs in ages," declared Frank. "The Gaul."

    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.

    Brief encounters of a slot kind

    There was nothing to indicate that take-off was anything other than routine.The trillionaire playboy bronzed adonis settled back to his first janx of the day,enjoying the gentle lift as he tapped the pedals guiding the nose toward egress.His tailormade stillsuit,adapted for the slightly corrosive effects of janx,delivered the precious sustenance to him at just the right temperature,one sip at a time.He savoured the droplet,then made a note to his tailor,complimenting her on her workmanship and ordering another dozen,in a varierty of irridescent tartans.Gentlemen,after all, really do wear plaid.

    A Handmaid Tail

    The two senators stared lustfully at the slavegirl. "That's some outfit. Where did you get the fancy dress cat costume for her?"

    The fat old senator beamed with pride. "You can't get that from the shops. I nano-printed it myself using my own design." He yelled over to the girl. "Keira! Come over here for a second. That's right. Turn around."

    The senator grabbed a hold of the costume's tail and pulled hard on it.

    "The tail is an integral part of the costume. I can tug it as much as I like and it's not going to drop off."

    Title: Jobs For Ugly Critters.

    By Fletch – Aged 7 and ¾

    In the 34th century, equal opportunities meant it was easier for unskilled cephalopods to hold down reasonable jobs.

    Maude was content with her work, even though she was considered a bit weird, even amongst her own kind. Being able to change colour, she preferred to be greenish than anything else. Some of her family called her bonkers.

    An eight-armed room cleaner at Hutton Orbital YMCA wasn’t the best paid job, but she was content.

    Her facial hair problem was overlooked by Sven, the manager, and her occasional Tourette’s outbursts were forgiven.

    Sven actually liked the mad green hairy lip squid.

    Ooh-err, missus

    George Lucas turned its attention to the Cobra docked in bay 17.

    It chuckled, remembering the joke it told Pratchett Gateway 604,800 lightseconds earlier. Pratchett Gateway had sniffed and said it would send him a present. Here it was, a Cobra - registered as 'Handmaiden' - with a hold full of rares.

    "Self-propelled luggage", declared the cargo manifest. George Lucas sent a sub-ether starmoji -- :quizzical: -- to Pratchett Gateway.

    "Everything is selfed here," Pratchett replied. "Self-piloting. Self-sniffing. Self-drinking. Even self-cloning."


    "Yes. My humans start by accessing a sample of their own DNA. Although they don't like it when you call them 'handmade'."

    Caikt Insh Ite - A story of cleanliness and a grotty little man.

    Commander Winnard was called to the stations managers office.
    "Why did you call me to you office?" he asked, as if Mr Hankey had scripted his question.
    The manager waved him over to the window overlooing the landing pads.
    "Look - that pile of junk sitting there - your grotty ship"
    "I've tried to hire cleaning staff but they refuse my calls now"
    "Well thats the other issue. I have here a complaint from our staff... the handmaiden..."
    "That was a misunderstanding over her job title."
    "Yes, our head polisher knows only too well."
    Winnard started to cry. "I am so lonely"

    Ah,the old parsec gag.They don't tell 'em like they used too.
    I am enjoying the George Lucas tales immensely.So much so in fact,that i was inspired to pen the following for your perusal .

    Thea slapped away the ghostly finger.
    'Get your pervy pins out of my sockets,ya old goat,before i ice yer bits.'
    It is rare to catch a station guard but the snatch of protocols he'd glimpsed was unlike anything he'd ever experienced before .
    George backed off hastily, as banks of indicator lamps suddenly blossomed red in the control room,gradually fading to a more circumspect orange.
    'Im terribly sorry,erm..mam?'he stammered,'I'm just doing my job.'
    In a love that spanned galaxies,he was a Station A.I.,she was a simple Threat Evaluation Analysis module.

    Keep up the good work,Commander.
