Solar flash


















Forgive the brevity of this flareup, but it's hot in here.

"So much for plan B."

"What about C?"

beep

"There's always D."

beeep

"Thinking about cup sizes again, Jack?"

beeeep

"Thinking about menopause again, Jill?"

beep beep beep

"Funny. How they made you mission commander, I'll never know."

BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP

"Being a man, I always pay atten --"

Congressional beancounters were relieved that the coronal mass ejection disintegrated the entire ship. Why waste money on a lengthy investigation in lieu of installing gold-plated faucets in Capitol Hill lavatories?

Graves, you swine!

You should replace more of your posts with Beep Beep Beep - it makes more sense, and frankly, uses less bandwidth.

Win-win!

Regards,

Tengrain

PS - Eat at Ray's!

That's a hot picture.

Remember that Far Side cartoon where this goony kid has 2 caterpillars under a magnifying glass with the sun burning in on them, and one caterpillar says to the other "yeah, you're right, it is getting kind of hot in here."

sunshine said...

Ahhh, is there anything better than a couple of snarky a-holes getting disintegrated??
I think not. :)

Cute story. :)

Very cute, Randal, but don't give the GOP and ideas. I can just see the calls for solar drilling now.

David Barber said...

Do I like this...of course I do. People being disintegrated is always fun. Just make sure you're sat by your PC on Saturday! ;-)

Is that what they call putting out the fire with gasoline?

Quick, somebody flash South Carolina while I'm down in Florida.

Liberality said...

You aren't, by chance, referring to BP's long line of "plans" to cap it's out of control oil well are you? well, I didn't think so but that's what popped into my head while reading this.

Oh, and those hot flashes are nothing to sneeze at either.

Demeur said...

Yeah Yeah we know. Why waste money on worthy things when there's such a need for lesbian bondage strip clubs and Hawaiian junkets.

Amazing, how reminiscent your illustration is of my forehead after a dinner at a Mexican restaurant that was muy caliente.

Randal Graves said...

tengrain, most importantly, less effort, too, leaving more time to eat at Ray's.

tom, you mean you haven't built a giant magnifying glass to do that to your fellow man?

sunshine, my brain's fried from this whole move gig, so I figured short n' cheap chuckles was the way to go. ;-)

tomcat, so the real Axis of Evil is North Korea, Iran and the Sun?

david, yeah, I'll be stuck here, but luckily it'll be on the internets. I might just close the place and sit in front of the widescreen in the lounge.

susan, needs more lighter fluid.

BB, kudos to your state for keeping the top spot in the loony state-level politics rankings.

liberality, no, but if one is inclined to agree with particular frogs, each text has multiple readings, and I'm always on board for more BP hate.

demeur, exactly!

SWA, ha!

Cormac Brown said...

Jee-sus, it's been so long since we've done Friday Flash, that I forgot to swing over here. All apologies and I will be rectum-fying it now.

Sue H said...

Very good, Randal!

It had a 'Dark Star'-esque feel to it, somehow (now I'm showing my age)

Ah - I see you have self-serving beancounters on your side of the 'pond' too.....!

Flannery Alden said...

I like the tidy ending!

Nicole E. Hirschi aka CJT said...

I second Cormac's comment above! This gave me a good laugh. Thanks Randal!

Was this on Futurama? I think that it was all Bender's fault.
