This was great! Had me in stitches quite a few times. It's definitely an improvement over the original episode. :)
Author's Response: Thanks! Although, to be honest, I don't see how someone could make it much WORSE!

Ever heard of something called "nose cola warning", EW? Good thing I don't drink cola -- but the coffee did try to make it to my nose...
Author's Response: Huh. I guess I'll have to get a beta just to tell me when I need that advisory. . . I just can't tell when something's insane enough! :P

LOL, I like this take! Sadly, it's not far off from the canon episode. I must say though, I'm surprised you didn't make anything of Jun throwing herself over Joe's body and clutching at his butt, and then Ken having to drag her away... ;-)
Author's Response: Point taken. But, considering this is my first fanfic EVER, I think I did pretty darned good, don't you?

Grammar stickler time: should be 'poring' instead of 'pouring.' And I think it's borscht.
Ken the Magpie instead of Ken the Eagle. All goons would carry shiny things to throw at him. Bombastic lines ruined by suddenly breaking off to say, "Oooh, shiny!"
Author's Response: Ah, this just shows that even former English teachers make the occasional mistake! Thanks for pointing them out; I'll tend to them promptly. I'm glad you enjoyed the story, warts and all.

I was imagining the unfortunate listeners shooting themselves (a la 'Airplane').
Zark just adores the sound of his own voice, doesn't he?
Author's Response: Sorry it took a little while to respond; in my previous attempts, I found myself prattling on and on for no obvious reason and ending with an overly saccharine sentiment. It was as if Zark had taken control! Then I said to myself, "What if I actually HAD been demonically possessed by a fictional robot? How do I fight it -- holy water? Or would I need something unique, such as a can of 1040-weight motor oil blessed by Steve Jobs?" At any rate, I'm so glad I could use my talent & skill to bring a few moments of joy to my fellow human beings! ;-]

There is a song with 'Dead puppies aren't much fun' in the lyrics. I heard it, I think, on Dr. Demento's radio show, so long ago that I don't recall all of them.
'Rocked launcher' makes for an interesting typo.
Now, take on the notorious puppy episode.
Author's Response: You're right about "Dead Puppies Aren't Much Fun" -- it was by Ogden Edsel and was played quite a bit by Dr. Demento. (I can remember the lyrics. . . I guess it shows I'm a sick puppy myself!) As for the puppy episode, take a look at ". . . And Their Stupid Dog".

So, when did you go to my kids' primary school concerts?
I howled with laughter all the way through this. Excellent. Loved the retcons too, for _why_ the technology used is so outdated. And Sosai channelling Barry Manilow makes me want to scrub my brain.
This is a compliment, btw :D
