Oh here it is merry Christmas, everybody's getting drunk!
About this creation
So this is Christmas. Yipee. However, let's fastforward a few decades or so, and take a glimpse into the furture.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. And Mark Kelso.
Welcome to Christmas. In space.
You know how your dad always gets drunk and starts randomly shooting? Well, this is what happened here. Some of you may recognise Merv the Texas engineer. Unfortunately, he got at the booze, and then he found an assult rifle. It took days to clear up that one....
Hey, is he drinking a crystal? Man, I knew those space navy guys had big budgets, but jeez.
Someone had the bright idea of using the workbench as the table. Great. If you don't mind finding a spanner in your turkey.
Yup. Just checking out those barrels. Wait. That one looks tampered with. Maye it wasn't a crystal Merv was drinking.
Then there's this poor sap.
He's been taking the *RUDE WORD FOR WEE WEE* out this girl's hair all year. And now she's snapped and gotten her revenge.
Of course, the marines alway want to get in on the fun. Let's look at these two playing charades.
Marine 1: 'OK, it's two words, it's a film....'
Marine 2: 'To be honest sir, I don't realy give a damm.'
Should we tell Shannon he's gotten his present mixed up?
In the midst of it all, an alien surveys his fellow's celebration. To him, it looks like getting drunk and taking revenge on people. Yup, pretty much.
See, this is what happens if you let an engineer design the tree.
Looks like they got the presents and the lastest shipment mixed up.
A few hours later...
Crazy engineer lady has passed out.
Merv's passed out.
Marine 1 has passed out.
I think marine 2 just fell asleep out of boredom.
Shannon made the mistake of opening his 'present'.
'Hey, guys? You gonna lemme down soon? Guys?'
And the alien is off to get the health and safety manager.
So, let's give a warm hand to our cast!
And remember children:
Stay away from your dad's drinks cabinet. You don't have to follow in his footsteps.
On a totally unrelated note, I may make this sorta thing a long running series, called Hanger 52. Maybe.
