Wake up Sheeple!

"Just one more pint of Bandersnatch Barley Wine," I suggested.

"That is a terrible idea," AK vouchsafed. "If we buy another round, we will be rushing to finish it before closing time, leading to an unseemly scene when Evangeline van Holsterin drives us out with the Stick of Lamentation. That is almost as terrible as your idea --"

" -- We agreed never to speak of that again."

"Let us fill a few growlers instead, such as I happen to have in my bag through the power of forethought, that we can take back to the laboratory and drink at leisure to keep ourselves focussed during the long night ahead of monitoring the screens."

Sadly, the Orbs escaped our vigilance yet again, even though the tapes record that they were present.

Tapes?

You mean those impossibly long strips of very thin mylar substrate coated with some kind of metal particle slurry that our grandparents used to record a continuous analog signal before we had the cloud?

I think it's time for the Riddled Labs operating budget to consider some basic upgrades - maybe a couple cheap 640x480 SD webcams and an old Core Duo PC running Fedora with a couple of dusty old PATA discs, maybe?

Oh golly, look! The "Foe" light is on and everything.Well I'm sure it can't have been too serious, it's not like some alien imposter got made president.

A few hours earlier, during lunch hour, the "pho" light was on.

Don't be stingy with the sriracha!

It is cruel to bring up pho when I can no longer have it delivered.

Of course you can have it delivered! In the world of free enterprise all things are possible if you work hard enough.

It is gruel to bring up pho

Ahh. So THAT'S how they make gruel...

Dood, in Galt's Gulch, there are only orderers of pho, no makers.

I think I actually LOLed the first time I read this.
