Alarms shrilled in the starship. “Oh, zark,” K’Pid swore. “Chief Engineer, why isn’t my ship moving? The asteroid’s almost here!”

“Captain, the warp drive’s completely shut down!”

“Well, restart it!”

“It isn’t that easy, captain! It’s not like my great-grandmother’s car; I can’t just give the crank a spin and take it from there!”

“Well….reverse the polarity then!”

“Captain, what does that even mean?”

    “Oy” is the answer to a lot of questions.
    It’s better than hitting your head against a wall…that hurts. 😉

    • Between “Oy,” and “42”, I think we have the meaning of life about covered. 🙂

  2. I enjoyed your take on the prompt.
    I shall spend the rest of today looking for ways to use the word ‘Oy’!

  3. Nicely done, Mike. Personally, I loven the word “Oy” and it’s versatililty. It’s an approproate comment for just about any situation.

  4. I like how fast-paced this was. The dialogue built on top of itself quickly, and the ending, “Oy!” I’m a little late to this party, but I have to say–I’m going to have to start using it more often, too. lol Nice write
