G. M. O. T. !
Well . . . I can’t say I wasn’t expecting something like this.
I really can’t.
When it is rule of funny the alternate becomes soft.
As altered time-lines go; this one’s a doozy.
“Ladies and Gentlemen …
Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (717) 9/3/2019 Wednesday
“A small area of the junction plates in the back is the sweet spot to deactivate them.” Said Violet.
It was an exciting fight as long as no blaster bolts hit you. The One-Eyed-Jacks won’t stop till they are deactivated.
The wreak of ozone was building as the air ionized around them as the robots fell one after another once the pattern was set they fell like 9-pins. But what a job it was.
“I think me windings are over heated.” Mentions Night-3. Quoppina do not sweat. Some of his body plates are up letting out heat build up.
“Dang Night-3 you’d make a good stove if it was cold!” Alley said humorously. Night-3 rippled some of his plates in laughter. Being small such buildups of heat are chronic. (Lack of surface area.)
“So would those junk heaps the way they’re smoken.” He pointed a metallic claw the way of the destroyed guard robots.
“Smoking? I could use a sarsaparilla “Dope” stick right about now." Said Night-4.
“Alright! Time to move out people!” Ordered Night-2 as they walked carefully around the smouldering bodies of the guard bots. They are still popping from the temperature differentials in their body casing.

9/4/2019 The Seventh Voyage: The Land of the Cyclopes_ (801 A.D.)
“THE OTHER CYCLOPS”
For that lascivious smile Ooola punched him in one of his big deltoids. That grin didn’t change one iota.
He does a quick kiss then gets up still crouching and brandishing his stick blade sword to see if he can mess up 2-Horn’s day.
She’s seen this a hundred times. Her little gun might be a distraction for the hulking monster. Just hope Alley can wound it before it stomps him!
Alley has come up against many enemies most of them human. Rarely has he come up against a giant, three times now with Sinbad. When he went before in the future they managed to miss the cyclopes still alive on this island.
The creature is so huge it is hard for him to not help but blunder along. A tight forest would slow him down. And that will give Alley a chance to sneak around him then cut one of his tendons on the fetlock.
Looking at its anatomy the lower half looks close enough to guess where to cut the sesimoid tendons above the fetlock bone.

Uh… Whatever. It’s called writing. So what else but the Pulitzer..
As really bad comic strips go, this one is a doozy.
I love it!
KZZZZZOP! I would sure like to be able to do that, i.e. pop into the future to see how things are going to turn out. However, I am not sure that the real Plato “learned” philosophy…I’m not an expert in this sort of thing, but being philosophical may be a talent that comes more or less naturally. ???
I wonder if it is a pop-up book.
I forget which article, but Patrick McManus has maintained that poor fishermen tend to make good philosophers. He also claimed that Plato was a really bad fisherman.
I sincerely enjoy looking at the illustrations these days. They are quite pleasant and becoming pleasantly consistent for the characters… and the backgrounds and other environmental features….. more and more interesting! Thank you, Mr. Lemon!
So, “Puppet Genius” won a Pulitzer? Cool Beans! (sarcasm)
For me, the writing is wholly frustrating again. But…. let me try to figure out a way to make this all “fit”:
Wow, so, like really cool…. the writer to was interviewing Plato, and listening to his umpteen Olive songs, and was having a jolly good time with his lyrical improvisation…. then asks the 50-something, non-philosophical Plato… “Hey, dude, what else you got for me?”
Plato responds, “Woah, woman, look here…. I can make these olives I had in my pocket that I somehow had from Kroger… look… I can make them into PUPPETS!!!!”
The writer responds, “Rock on, Dude! Gimme more!”
“Well, I gots a big bunch to tell ya, I sure do!” Plato sputters in a “Popeye-esque” accent he just made up on the spot, “But, I gots me so much to say, that I think you should record the stuff I say on this here 80’s mix-tape I found.”
“Cool Beans!” replies the writer
She lets him yammer on, has the tape transcribed. When the book gets to the publication phase, she has to make a decision…. does she call the book “Puppet Genius” or should she name it “Rock, On, Olive Dude!” Luckily for her, she made a more literary sounding decision, which then allowed her to receive the Pulitzer…. because her work was the first and only entry in that category of the year….. the year when all writing ceased as Fahrenheit 451 became a reality.
Yeah, that makes today’s effort work for me. :)
