Operation
Weird Bumps
We went to the Great Pear of Dorchester. Planet Massachusetts all the
way. Newly hatched food were out in force, ululating wildly at our
sleek, unfamiliar space vehicles.


Photo annotations, in order:


1 All bump the Pear. Dr Claw has magic glow ankles!


2 Inanimate food smooches Wombat's plasma casing.


3 PIPE MOFO


4 What horror lurks within the stripey helmet? Nosepicker knows.


5 SO MANY TEETH


6 Shore leave. Civitron attended in mufti.


7 Our noirey heroes stop for a snackety snack.


8 Reconstruction of Lazarus' laser arrays continues.


9 You cannot recycle this here.


10 Civitron ejected from Mjollnir unexpectedly. All present chortled
while he leaked bodily fluids and expressed surprise.


11 Skunk smooches his bump. Can't fault his taste: it's still the
weirdest bump around.


12 O THE FRUITY RADIANCE! The pear is greatly improved since
SCUL's last flyby. In addition to being surrounded by a brilliant
laser array, it is now garnished with detailed bronze replicas of
Earth artifacts including a premillennial subspace communicator,
shoes, rope, a "book", and DELICIOUS MOIST CAKE.


13 SCUL may leave, but the pear remains. It is a Clapp pear.


14 Mission close. Medals were Strength to Dr. Claw for powering
Starhustler into a G-well solo, Injury to Civitron, and Valour to
Civitron for navigating
under duress.



PS Treekiller may not tailgun again this season, no matter how much he
wants to.
