Computer Lord Loses

 The Computer Lord sat inside his dusty shell waiting impatiently for the games to begin. His tentative claws tapped the keyboard and his toes curled in delight as a brilliant light flashed across his screen. His mouth dropped and he caught his breath at the sight of the Ninja Captain, taking over his computer. He was ordered to play ten games simultaneously and win all of them, and all before lunch. If he failed he would be thrown out of IWSG and made to feed the clones for the next 20 years.

So he ate and ate until a green vapor escaped his mouth with a loud burp and then he proceeded to play the games--all ten simultaneously--which required him to push buttons with every finger, toe, and even elbow. The task grew incredibly difficult when he got a terrible itch on his...GAME.

“An itch - now where did I put that itch. . . Oh yes I know it flew around the globe and landed at that place of Ping Pong - the Wimbledon tennis tournament” Ping Pong...

Between each PING and PONG the itch dodged, leaping across the net in frenzy. Breathless, it took one final leap and landed ... SPLAT! The keyboard lit up and Captain Ninja smiled as the Computer Lord was sucked straight into the last game of Ping Pong.

“That will teach any wanna- be Computer Lord to mess with me!” Captain Ninja chuckled with venom on his tongue as he watched the wilted wanna- be feeding the clones.

Thanks for playing little clones.

That turned out awesome! Must've been Michael who wrote those last few lines.

Alex is right: your game turned out amazing this time. I would have chimed in this weekend, but I had worked 18 hours and drove 800 miles. Whew!

Suzanne Furness said...

Loads of awesomeness!

Hi Siv - glad Michael turned the story into something sensible - now I won't be able to think of ping pong any other way ---- cheers Hilary

This was great. I bet the itch was the surprise.
