    If they had ships fast enough to get the mother-in-law there, why not use one of them?

    Maybe the idea was a slow boat to china.

    If they are on the same tiny vessel, then yes, they can hear you scream.

    When Reginald Iolanthe Perrin woke up on the Thursday morning, he had no intention of calling his mother-in-law a hippopotamus…

    Oh wait, it’s HIS mother. Never mind…

    Funny, my married siblings never seemed to have any troubles with their mother-in-laws.
    Maybe this is a stereotype that needs to be retired.

    This is easy to explain. Like charges repel each other and dislike charges attract. The stronger the dislike, say mother vs. daughter-in-law, the more powerful the attraction.

    Both ships were equal in speed. Once the mother reached infinite dislike for her daughter-in-law, the attraction was able to move the mother’s ship and the space around it at seemingly faster than light speeds without breaking any laws of relativity.

    “The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin”. One of the all-time great TV shows. (British import, of course.)

    I live near the town of Mars, PA. There was a diner in my area called the Venus diner (now gone). So you could eat at Venus on your way to Mars.

    At least it’s the wife’s mother-in-law this time, unlike usual.

    Only a couple of seconds ago did it occur to me that a private investor really was talking about financing a 501 day trip to Mars for a married couple.
