    Stuck on you

    Tommy had committed many crimes, the biggest against his own health.
    He'd spent the last fortnight, trapped on a 4g world.
    His own weight exceeded the mass limit of the thrusters.
    His punishment was also his savior, as the food printer malfunctioned, into producing nothing but sprouts.
    After discovering Buffalo sprout wings with his own hot sauce, he settled into a routine.
    His stomach large enough, and well riveted with layers of protective blubber, he built up the pressure.
    Rebooting the systems, he knew he only had one shot at this.
    Hovering over a torpedo tube, Tommy squeezed his freedom.

    Tactical Response

    The local cops were waiting in the docking area as Lieutenant Ketch landed his midnight black Fer-de-Lance. They shook his hand as he left his ship. "That's quite a fighter you've got there. How fast does it go?"

    Ketch patted the outside of his ship in a proud manner "I'm afraid that's classified. Let's just say that even Palin-improved ships would have difficulty escaping the deadly weapons of this little beauty.

    So who's this fugitive you want me to take care of?"

    The cops passed him a holo-document. "His name's Eugene Snotter, wanted for parking in the wrong docking bay."

    Post Last orders

    Space has it's own system of crime and punishment.

    Take Joe, a deep space explorer from the Alioth System.
    Only two thousand light years from the bubble, the ship's heavily pitted hull barely reflects the shine of the nearby star.
    Having skipped the usual maintenance checks weeks ago, Joe's looking forward to the warm beer and terrible hot wings of home.
    A memory that reminds him that he has a four pack, left cooling in airlock #4.

    "One last drink for the home straight"
    <CLUNK>
    **ATTENTION! ATTENTION! AIRLOCK CYCLING**
    "Oh, f-"
    <WHOOSH>

    FOR SALE: Blue Asp, 40,000ly, one careless owner.

    A poem about Grime,and pun is meant.

    As i was squatting in the mire i met a man whose job was squire.By name McMoofus,very bold and gay,although in perhaps not quite the way that those of weaker mind than i might impute or at least imply.This McMoofus, then,by striving with his might,sought all day long and far into the night,to recreate sounds most mellifluous and grand,whilst trumpeting abroad throughout the land the most obnoxious smells and stenches,the sort of thing that empties benches at a football match.True troubador of flapping cheeks,McMoofus knows his parts and farts.

    Atmosphere's a bit ripe..

    The nose of his cobra rose slightly as he came to rest on pad 17, George Lucas looked over it cautiously.
    The dockers checked the manifests and bounty boards, this ship was clean. They gave the all clear.
    Customs Officers approached gingerly, and smiled ready to greet the pilot as his docking bay doors opened.
    A green mist poured out, engulfing the officers, squeezing the air from their lungs and moisture from their eyes, cracking them open like walnuts.
    The Pilot staggered out “Sorry about that, I tried this curry at Hutton orbital.. god knows what they put in it”

    A Toast to Free Trade

    "Lavian Brandy!" The party chairman held up the bottle for his new speech writer to see. He poured him and himself a glass.

    The writer didn't appear comfortable as he stared at the glass in front of him. "Illegal in this system. I guess one law for the rich." He choked on his first sip then took more gulps.

    He sounded disappointed "The Lavian Civil War, an engineer who'd do anything for bottles of this stuff, the countless millions of credits made in smuggling

    ...and all for something that just makes you feel a little dizzy when you drink it."

    You gotta piika pokke door chew

    Luke O'zade,notorious pirate, thief and galactic master-petty-criminal,rubbed his hands with glee at the thought of the immense riches his latest scheme had netted him.Those poor fools,even now slugging back pints of' 'Lavian Brandy'Yo in the hope that increased volume would spark the raging violence that lurked within their souls.And the more they drank,the dizzier they became. Soon the spaceways were filled with weaving, bobbing, corkscrewing and colliding spacecraft,all intent on replenishing their stock.He checked to make sure he had enough labels printed for the next round of 'substitutions' before boosting into the dark.

    Well done Phong. his chosen theme for the week is

    BEST LAID PLANS


    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. Futuristic Kung Fu is not allowed to question the rules, change the rules or even know what the rules are.
    19. Nick Kershaw is the real singer of 'Never Gonna Give You Up'

    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.

    The sound and the fury.

    Mr Hankey was excited about the latest exploration changes.He decided to go shopping for a new honk-scanner.He wanted a sound that wouldn't alarm his pet.He checked his telemetry and dropped his python 'Percy' in front of a large ceramic wall.He leaned out of the cockpit and shouted down."Can you make this for me? I've drawn the sounds i want in crayon on bearskin, it's a sort of slurpy, whooshy, squishy sound.It's on a mat up here."The bouncers looked at one another in bewilderment."This is Dick's Horny Tool Club.Are you a member?"

    The Rumbling Sound of Rabbie Spinning in his Grave

    You wanna know why genetics is outlawed today? Back in the 2200's labs started producing superintelligent mice designed to plan out mankind's future. Of course mice can't speak, so they were made to lay eggs. Carefully folded within these eggs were microfilms detailing the best layouts for schools and hospitals, etc.; anything which could make the world a better place.

    Mice eggs are tiny. They needed larger hosts for bigger plans, so they used men. That's when the angry mobs kicked down the doors of the labs and put a stop to the freakish experimentation. It all went off agley.

    "Jimmy's lookin' down"

    "His girlfriend's left him; you know, that one he said woz the best nights o' his life. Well she started taking over his life, telling him what to do and where tae go. You know how timid Jimmy is. He just let her walk all over him.
