    01 - Frank - Can You Believe It?

    It was a one to one interview with the President. "The chocolate cake was delicious!"

    The reporter frowned. "Mr President, can we get back to... you sending the Death Fleet to Zaonce?"

    He waved a tiny hand off-handedly, "Zaonce, Lave... some Alliance system anyway. These cakes are available at any PREZ hotels." His eyes lit up as he heard the sweet trolley approaching. "Wait 'til you see this. People say I'm unpopular? They keep sending me these gifts."

    The reporter's frown seemed permanent. "It's made of chocolate? It's a teapot? You don't understand the meaning?"

    The president stared back innocently.





    02 - RoyalHankey - National Chocolate Day

    It was 1st of August and National Chocolate Day!!!!
    Commander Winnard leader of the turd party gathered his troops.
    Winnard said "This year we can only get chocolate animals".
    "So go find them and I will expect to view your choices at end of shift".
    Frank was first he got a chocolate santa"
    Hes getting old so he was forgiven.
    Angelgriff was next and produced a chocolate bunny.
    Mouse666 turned up with a chocolate moose.
    Psykokow managed to get a chocolate cow.
    Simoof thought getting 2 cows was funny, but it was his birthday.
    And Mindwipe acquired some chocolate hares.




    03 - Listeri69 - If you knew, Peggy-Sue, then you know why....

    'It's right there' Whispered Kow nervously
    'Relax here's the 10,000cr we agreed' Hankey smiled as he shoved his nuts forcibly into Simoof's chocolate fountain
    Simoof gave a muffled fart, 'Don't wake him' Kow grimaced
    'I have enough now...' Hankey shook his nut bag, wiping it clean on the curtains
    'Seriously? What you need chocolate nuts for?'
    'Master Bait, Thargoids love them, i'm going to lure one onto my python '

    A face appeared 'Whatcha doin' Simoof yawned
    'Hankey was using your chocolate fountain' Kow panicked
    'What fountain? I sold that months ago..'
    Nuts hanging out of his mouth. Hankey was dead....





    04 - phong - Ze, 'ow you say' ,chocolatiers tale.

    'So,what 'ave we 'ere?'said the customs inspector,tapping the first of the
    massive containers ranked in the massive hole of winnards massive ship
    'chocolate chocolate chocolate way point scoop
    chocolate chocolate way point scoop chocolate
    chocolate weigh chocolate p0int chocolate scoop
    point way chocolate scoop chocolate chocolate
    chocolate chocolate chocolate point scoop weigh
    choclate shoclate wehey schcoop point chocolat
    chocolate scoop chocolate chocolate point way
    chocolate way point scoop chocolate chocolate
    scoop chocolate point chocolate chocolate weigh
    way point scoop chocolate chocolate chocolate.'
    The little drone hummed its chirpy reply,as it busied itself about its task,before signing off with a cheeky 'chocolater'.





    05 - cleonymus - A love of sweet things can lead you to do some strange things.

    The skimmers were all down. The commander edged up to the warehouse doors and slipped inside. His eyes widened in amazement. The rumors were true. The biggest chocolate factory in the bubble. Ahead a huge lake of runny delicious brown liquid.


    His hands shook as he stripped his flight suit and dove in.


    Two days later and local security were discussing the autopsy report.


    "It says he had a heavy cold, but no signs of drugs. The cameras show there was no foul play. There seems to be no reason why he broke into the main system sewage recycling plant."





    06 - Galactic Midden - Oh I, i just died in your barns tonight

    After the crippling meat blockades on Birminghamworld, Horatio's Farm had transformed itself into a lucrative safari park. Chocolate was their prize attraction, an alpha Bull of an indigenous herd species, it looked sweet but was in fact quite deadly.

    Today Horatio's was closed as Federal police investigated the untimely death of work placement student Robbie Nobbit. "We don't know why he entered the barn, officer, or why he's naked" pleaded Horatio, "We only found tonight's worksheet on him. He was supposed to stack shelves in the gift shop! ".


    Worksheet
    ~~~
    Strip down shelf.
    Prepare display: -
    Milk Chocolate
    Finish before tour ends





    07 - JetsonRING - Mmmm, Chocolatey . . .

    Imagine humanity's joy and surprise at finding out the Jelly worms of Rinax-IV were edible and delicious.
    Millions of the tiny creatures were wiped out almost overnight to feed the hungry masses patronizing “gourmet” eateries across the bubble.
    Jelly worms were almost entirely extinct when one hungry human, much like the story of the Oyster,
    ate some of the pellets excreted by the Rinax worms and found them to be more tasty and nutritious than the worms themselves!
    “Chocolate Worm Candies” are now enjoyed throughout the bubble, revenue from the sale of the confection having saved the species from extinction.





    08 - Alien - If Only I Could Erase This Scene From My Head ...

    Cue audio: single trumpet plays six notes

    Scene opens on a Type-9 with a friesian cow paint job landing on a moon's surface.
    A single SRV in midnight black exits the Type-9
    As we follow the SRV bouncing across the moon's surface, it flies off a cliff, barrel rolls in mid air, like a stunt from a James Bond movie.
    The SRV effortlessly dodges raining skimmers and ships trying to blow it out of existence.
    Finally it stops nearby a ship and a posh accent reads out the words now on screen ...

    AND ALL BECAUSE ROYALHANKEY LOVES KOW'S MILK TRAY




    09 - Cmdr Pseudonym - Chocolate doesn't make you pregnant.

    Cmdr Skiprat had decided that what Dongkum needed was a new sausage
    one that could pleasure all the women.
    A 12 inch chocolate sausage
    Skippy spent all night working on it until finally it was ready
    he stuck it through a test gloryhole and sure enough it was munched on quite heavily
    'That was delicious anymore where that came from?' A Jamaican woman replied
    Skippy had an idea he covered his willy in chocolate spread and stuck it through..
    there was a loud crunch followed by a scream..
    'I don't like this raspberry filled one as much as the plain'





    10 - Edith_The_Hutt - That's not biowaste...

    Maris flicked her bobblehead, its inane plastic rictus wobbled dutifully. Outside a thousand miles of incandescent plasma, contorted by colossal magnetic fields, twisted and spun against the cool blackness of the void.

    There was no escaping it, she was bored.

    A flash indicated new visitors to the backwater. Dutifully she locked on and hit the cargo scan. What would it be this time? More farm equipment? Some geological stabilisers perhaps? Or more Bio-

    -You never saw that being shipped. It was unheard of. It… just…

    She called her wing-mates excitedly.

    “Boys, this one's got some real *tasty* cargo”





    11 - Simoof - Not Poo. But the drabble is.

    Food had been the root of many wars in Earths history.
    In the late 20th centruy there was the ice cream wars of Glasgow.
    Before that some crusades about cheeses had occupied the people for thousands of years.
    The commander had a choice to make. In front of him 2 canisters. He only had room for one.
    In one the last remaining viable coffee beans. In the other, the last cocoa bean.
    Noone had fallen asleep and crashed into a sun because of lack of chocolate.
    His wife would be furious, but he would just buy her some... oh crahp.

    Okay I pasted over the corrections you made, but left in the other mistakes. Not changing people's stories without their permission was a lesson I learnt a long time back.
