Titled something like The Importance of Being Ernest or Let’s Be Frank. At the end of the story all people were clones of either Ernest or Frank.

They’re designed to home in on the shields! The missiles can’t miss!” “I just didn’t turn the shields on.” “(She’s good.)” “We didn’t think of that. How did you know they work that way?” “It’s what I would do if I designed shield-penetrating missiles.” “(She’s GOOD.)” “(Shut up.) Well, we can play that game, too. We’ll turn off our shields, so in case you did design shield-penetrating missiles, yours wouldn’t find us either.” “Oh, I already used them to find you, and I’m right behind you, and you’ve dropped your shields…” “(She’s *GOO Flyswatter March 9, 2022 at 7:00 am 9 months ago Happy with yourself? Christopher now has to re-write the space battle scene. Scorpinac March 9, 2022 at 3:01 am 9 months ago Oh, please, like Choan didn’t predict that there could be weapons capable of penetrating their own shields. And she had how long to play with the stolen tech before this happened? The Stribs are in for a mass of disappointment.

They always seem to think I’m requestIng it that way to payless because there is no frosting. Also most supermarket cakes are not baked at the supermarket, they are premade by one of 2 companies and frozen so I usually tell them to get the cake out of the freezer. Cake thaws pretty quick on the way home so usually its ready to eat in 15/20 minutes. Louise March 9, 2022 at 7:49 am 9 months ago Cake, then sadness is better than no cake and sadness. Better to have carbed and lost? Meran March 16, 2022 at 7:22 am 9 months ago Best to learn to bake cake! I had to learn it twice… first the normal way, and then the celiac way. Good thing about cake: best ones are made with cake flour which is very light and gluten free cakes are made with the tenderest, softest flours around! irisclara March 9, 2022 at 9:19 am 9 months ago I agree that the solution to running out of cake is more cake. Cupcakes are good. Each one feels like a tiny cake! Pete Rogan March 9, 2022 at 5:56 pm 9 months ago Nogg knows he’s terminally serious. That’s funny. Especially now. Looking forward to the next dead-serious thing Choan gets Nogg to say or actually do. He’s a practical-jokester’s best friend. Right up to the cream-pie mountain detonation. SSPPLLUUUUURRRRRRTTTTTTTT! Ah, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Efogoto March 9, 2022 at 6:11 pm 9 months ago 1-0-0-0-0-0 As for the last time Nogg got laid, if he has to stop and think about it at least there was the once. Demarquis March 9, 2022 at 8:19 pm 9 months ago Well, somewhere there must be a species that looks like Nogg does, or where did he come from? By their standards of beauty, for all we know, Nogg is a veritable God. Efogoto March 10, 2022 at 2:05 am 9 months ago NOW you’re stretching the bounds of believability. This is Nogg after all. tlhonmey March 15, 2022 at 11:45 am 9 months ago Not really. There’s often in inverse relationship between good looks and intelligence… Zeebob Froomchik III, Esq.
