Not So far In the Future, In a Bunker Far far away... : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

The conclave had gathered to discuss the great danger which lay ahead. A pahntom menace was stalking the great ones a the end of the twentieth century.....

The wise ones gathered in a great forum to debate the extent of the danger, the great Doombringer garynorht would speak first. "With all due respect, this great tremor in the web which we have all felt is unspeakably nasty, we'll all be dead before act III, my advice: it sucke being a Jedi, let's go hang out wiht Milne and learn to be pigfarmers, imparial troops don't bother pgi farmers do they?" with a swirl of his somber brown robes, he sat trying to hide the look of glee on his face. Jedi Milne favored North with a nod, "you and you Padawan learners Yourdon and Hyatt have doen great service tot he Jedi cause--" There was a bit hooting form the Jedi optimists: Decker, Hoff, Flint and their grandmaster: Koskinen the feckless. Bob beemer stood his awesome presence heralded silence in the forum hall. He turned his greying head sweeping his iron gaze over all of the Jedi's, then, he began to speak. "know you not y2k of, ASCII invented I did, and the little escape key. Key escape without screwed you would be. Online shopping there would be NOT!! Then how would dried food you order? news on Oil bad is, Jedi's infomagic and Hamasaki right are, screwed we will all be." Koskinen dared to interrupt, purring in his senatorial voice he proclaimed "but master beemer, no matter what we have 3 days of winter storm to contend with, besides if it was gonna be that bad i would have said so, i have all that senatorial stuff going on. You don't see bennet and Dodd running for the hills do you?" :speak with forked tongue you do 'factless,'even I ancient beemer tired of you crap has become.. away from the jedi forum with you!" Jedi North cheered, his voice tinny from spending so much time in his Jedi bunker. "oh yeah?" snarled Koskinen, he drew open his robes and out flashed his Jedi Saber, a glowing brown rod reminiscent of his great jedi powers of crapulence. Beemer being to old to fight motioned to Jedi Milne who took his place with a glowing blue lightsaber, representing his face after arguing with flint for hours. "BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!" he sceamed as he catapulted through the air, "if you live within 5 parsecs of a space station you're toast!"

Oh, I dunno know, I think I could have done without the image of Koskinen's "glowing brown rod" as I tried to eat lunch. (Little bits of wing dings now strewn across my keyboard...)

-- Brooks (, November 02, 1999.

Yeah, Jeremiah, I hate to say it, but that story is"precious". So what do you look like, Jeremiah? I hope you're not so "former" a former Seal that you look like Jesse"the Beer Barrel Polka" Ventura. Now he's WAYYYYYYYY "former".

The force is strong with you, but you are not a Jedi YET!


Vision of "wing-dings" strewn across your keyboard nearly made me blow Dr. Pepper out my nose! How come I missed the "glowing brown rod" the first read through? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH...

Thank you, thank you! That was, "sorry i'm still laughing" - having a hard time doing both - outstanding. Thank you for sharing, and may the force be with you "master"!!!!!
