    01 - Sneevus - Post Family Tree

    "You're here early."
    "I had a cunning plan"
    "If it's so cunning, why's your computer beepin'?"
    "The zero key's stuck down"
    "Let it go!"
    "I have."
    "Well, hit it with somat."
    "Crap, I hit enter instead."
    "So?"
    "I was posting an advert to see if I could find my Father, that key got stuck typing in the reward for finding him!"
    ** Docking crews to their stations, high traffic volume requesting docking **
    "'Ere, you know what landing bay's gonna be full of...?"
    "Don't bloody say it, you want us to end up as a drabble or something?"
    "Ah yeah, good point."





    02 - Alien - In Beta

    NPC's will pass and kids will pew pew my Asp
    but I'll be showing imperial class in beta

    A bounty on my head, if I'm not quick I'll end up dead again
    and space will be turning sticky red... in beta

    I'll finally dock at Barnard's Star station with a smile upon my face
    and head off to the thargoid and fer-de-lance and get out my face

    Oh I can't wait to see what Elite will do for me
    I wont even bother to get up to pee in beta

    Dah dah dah doo
    Uh bah bah bah bah bah boo





    03 - cleonymus - Tis' the season to be frugal

    The ward room on the courier gleamed. The table resplendent with the finest plates and Hutton Mugs. The crew were excited as they anticipated the meal to come. They had been looking forward to it all year.
    Meanwhile in the galley the cook was discussing the arrangements with the purser.
    "You better not make last years mistake", said the purser. "The amount leftover was intolerable. You overcatered for a crew of hundreds."
    "Dinnae worry yorsel'" said the cook. "You can explain to the crew that after your lecture last year, I froze the leftovers and will just be reheating them."





    04 - phong - Stormy presents: Don't put on the slippers until you've checked the toes

    'Dripping dripping dripping dripping.
    freeze,freeze freeze
    melting melting melting melting
    drip drip drip
    and that concludes the weather forecast for this morning.'
    The feline form stretched lazily once before the natural desire to preen overcame it and, wrapping it's tail around the
    ornate handle of an hairbrush, it began to pull the tines through it's thick lustrous hair,paying particular care to the
    area around its ears.Satisfied,it shrugs into a flight suit,slips on a pair of aviator specs and walks to the ready
    room,practicing it's swagger all the way.The room erupts!
    What an entrance!!
    Noice 'Fro,Zen.





    05 - RoyalHankey - Humbug Christmas

    I'm dreaming of a black Christmas
    Just like the ones I used to like
    Where the asteroid's glisten and planets pissing
    To hear sleigh ships in the snow
    I'm dreaming of a black Christmas
    Just like the ones I used to like
    Where the asteroid's glisten and planets pissing
    To hear sleigh ships in the snow
    I'm dreaming of a black Christmas
    With every Christmas will I write
    May your days be pirated and dark
    And may all your Christmases be black
    I'm dreaming of a black Christmas,
    Just like the ones I used to like
    Mah nah, mah nah





    06 - Simoof - On the first day of Christmas I was given a box.

    The ice planet was barren and harsh. Void of colour. Drab. Boring. Energy was provided from underground sulfurous pools. It had a peculiar smell that combined with the scorching bitterness of the air was repugnant to the nose. In a way is was reminiscent of home thought Commander Midden to himself.
    He was on a rescue mission.
    In one box, the apendagless Canidae Vulpes, the other its cryogenically preserved feet.
    "Whats in that box?" asked the customs agent.
    "Frozen fox paws" replied Middensatwat
    "And the other box?" the confused agent quizzed.
    "A Fox!"
    "What you going to do with it?





    07 - Galactic Midden - Too Much Tuna Will Fill You

    Simoof looked where his delicious fish dinner had been and then over at the hairy beast slinking in the corner of the cockpit.

    "Psykokow! What'd you do that for!?"

    Kow, looked up sheepishly, "sorry, didn't think you'd smell that one".

    "Whit? Listen, if you don't sort out that thieving, pathetic excuse for a rat catcher I'm gonna throw Zen out the airlock"!

    Just then a furry fore paw sank its claws into Simoof's solar plexus an instant before it's owner vomited a fishy sauce into Moof's ecstatically gaping mouth.

    "Wow. You've forgotten I promoted him over you again haven't you?".





    08 - Listeri69 - Tommy's faux pas : A tragic story of embarrassment, harassment and sentiment.

    Tommy was being winched out of another sidewinder, opened like a sardine can.
    He pondered as he sat hoisted 100ft above the docking bay.
    This wasn't his greatest faux pas. No his worse faux pas came on his last trip to Kowden.
    After being winched out of a python, but it wasn't his own.
    It was the pink orca that really caused all the problems, especially the welsh sounding one with the strange pirate hat, claiming him as an undiscovered planet,
    and then the faux pas.
    Hanging from the crane, a spinning shart cannon with a flag in the arsse





    09 - Cmdr pseudonym - Driving home for christmas...

    'But I'm so wet mr skiprat'

    'I don't care you're not having the umbrella'

    'I will be frozen and then you'll be sorry'

    'not my fault you didn't wear adequate clothing for the climatic conditions'

    'no spastic eagle for you tonight'

    Skiprat shrugged his shoulders. she was always moaning at him, yesterday it was because she had a 'name', he'd never bothered learning a name before, and what was that other one oh yeah it's disrespectful to involve a mate in your love life when you're waving at her through the window.

    'Fine have the F*$&" umbrella then' said Skiprat...
