    02 - phong - Must..learn..reading ..skillz.

    Being a rear-admiral in the imperial space navy certainly entitled one to certain perks and priveleges not available to lesser ranks,but the demands of duty required unremitting vigilance and the higher up the chain of command the heavier the burden.So a chance of home leave,however brief,was highly prized.The somewhat shy four-year old nephew she remembered had blossomed into a confident, intelligent ten-year old,defiant of jaw and firmly resolved to follow in the footsteps of his celebrated relative.She offered him the data cube,a record of her journey during the intervening years."Sheesh,auntie..."





    03 - Frank - The Plight of the Molly Rose

    The wind it did blow boys
    from out of the sun

    A coronal ejection
    Let's spool up and run


    The lady we left boys
    a sight to behold

    We'd crippled her drives
    and then poked her with holes


    we never looked back boys
    to see what we'd done

    We left her to die
    when we'd all had our fun


    Their comms were left open
    The screams we did hear

    To wash out our shame
    we did all have a beer


    Our black hearted captain
    he laughed at their plight

    But then we all knew
    that his manners were shockingly bad





    04 - Listeri69 - Kernal, kornal, cernal buggy colonel Blow me.....

    Deep in the bowels of a small studio in new Glasgow two aspiring producers decide to write an inspiring space shanty

    'Winnard is a massive kock , Hankey owns a crusty sock,
    Midden, should remain hidden. and Skippy he looks like chuck rock'

    'It's inspired me' moof nodded along

    Kow said it's good but it's missing something how about

    'Winnard is a massive c**t , his belly sticks out in front
    his willy is rather chilly
    for in his trousers you will have to hunt...

    'I'm liking this more' Moof said

    Not as good as our granny though 'Pigfart' is a classic





    05 - phong - Mr.Hanky Sings Phong

    'It was Friday night at the Fer de lance,and the peacocks were strutting their stuff;When into the bar strode a pilot from far,And he said that his name was Simuff.He hitched up a chair and sat down with a glare.Sven the bartender poured him a drink.....''Will you shut up with that daft song',said Kow."I'm trying to land.Where did you hear it,anyway?"'On tinternet.There's quite a bit about you,too.'"I've always fancied being part of popular culture.How does it go,then?" 'Stop',said Simoof,'we've reached 100 words.'





    06 - RoyalHankey - Star Wars

    All I want, all I want, all I want is a girl
    Someone that cares enough about me
    That she refuses to react
    When I act like I don't care about her

    Ice-packs for my shiners
    Though you're on my nerves
    Someone smart enough to click me back together
    ?? simple and suede and still evadable

    Is that too much to ask?
    Is that too much to ask?
    Is that too much to ask?
    Well, I don't know

    Well, I don't know
    Someone that loves me the way of
    Star Wars, Wizards and Ninja Wars
    Star Wars, Wizards and Ninja Wars





    07 - Galactic Midden - Should I read my own drabble? No you shant.

    08 - Cmdr Pseudonymn - frikkin in the Dongkum.

    One... Two... Three....

    It was on a purple python
    that simoof killed his first man
    he shot his load in zero g
    and left him with a strange tan

    The captain was a potato
    he had a load of ammo
    he sprayed it all in his face
    and gave him army camo

    The ship mates name was hankey
    he was always got quite spanky
    he did his haircut with a spoon
    and it really looks quite w@nky

    The cabin boy is midden
    very disease ridden
    he smells of fart and chocolate sauce
    with just a touch of year old chicken




    09 - TheOriginalB - Something Something Spanish Ladies (aka Recycling Content For The Greater Good(tm))

    Farewell and adieu to you Hutton Truckers
    Farewell and adieu to you drinkers of gin
    For we've received orders to fight 'gainst the Thargoids
    And we may never drink from these warm mugs again.

    We'll rant and we'll roar, like hardened space truckers
    We'll rant and we'll roar, across shipping lanes
    Until this menace is driven from the bubble
    Restocking on mugs; .22 light years remain.

    We flew to Maia to get meta alloys
    And out to Synuefe for Guardian ruins
    'Twas hundreds of light years in an old Lakon freighter
    Did the Thargoids start this or was it humans?




    10 - Draxxor - weeigghhh heyyyy blow that man off

    Come all ye noob pirates that follow the coin
    To me weigh hey shoot that ship down
    with foo-king beam lasers then cannons or guns
    I'll give you some time to shoot that ship down

    To me weigh hey, now all i do is frown.

    Boys and girls!
    I think you’ll find
    That my shants
    Will blow your mind.

    Look at my shants
    With the eyes in your face.
    My legs are covered
    In outer space.

    Space shants!
    Space shants!
    I
    Am wearing
    Space shants.

    Space shants!
    Space shants!
    My shants are
    Space shants.

    Do you see my shants?
    No wait! You missed them.
    My shants are a tour
    Of the solar system.

    When I say “space,” you say: “shants.”
    Space! (What?)
    When I say “space shants,” you say:
    “are intergalactic space shants.”
    Space shants! (Intergalactic space shants)
