This weekend’s Trifextra prompt was to write thirty-three words inspired by the idiom “third time’s the charm”. This bit of dialogue sprung to mind. Basically I pictured the bad guys of Independence Day, but a bit more…erudite. 😛

““I say, Q’irpington, shall we invade Jupiter next?”

“I should say not, sir. Bit gassy, you know.”

“Saturn’s out too, then. What about the little blue one?”

“Brilliant choice, sir.”

“Naturally, Q’irpington. Naturally.”

  1. Invading aliens, British Accents. It works!

  2. You have mad sci-fi skills, my friend!

  3. I say . . . I can just picture the alien with a monocle 🙂

  4. Haha! Brilliant dialogue! “I say!” (I laughed so hard at that.)

    Nice work. 😀

  5. I wonder if they drink gin?

  6. Hahahaha! Awesome dialogue. My three year old is always telling people that our planet is not gassy, which he sees as a good thing. Not always, I suppose… 😉 Great take on the prompt!

  7. Really enjoyed this conversation. Well done.

    Earth is gassy too, in it’s way haha 😀 Very cute!

  9. Funny exchange. Although, I might be the only person who hasn’t seen Independence Day 🙂

    • I may be the only person who hasn’t seen Pirates of the Caribbean, or The Matrix, so I feel your pain.

  10. I guess that would be the best process of elimination! Terrific.

    • Or at least the moons around the gaseous planets….lots of lovely moons, you’d think the aliens would pick those, but nooooo.

  11. I loved this! I literally laughed out loud. Well played.

    • That is my goal in life; to make people laugh out loud. With me, not at me. 😛
