The Half-Flush Conspiracy

“You’ve had five years,” said Lord Gurgatron. “What have you accomplished?”

The little alien scientists beamed. “We’ve sabotaged many of the humans’ toilets to only flush halfway on the first attempt!”


“This will soon incite insurrection against their plumber overlords!”

“They are ruled by plumbers?”

“So our research indicates.”

Liquid Life Forms

All the aliens in the zoo are unique, but the sentient liquids are by far the strangest. They’re so far beyond the scope of my understanding.

I clean their tanks conscientiously, and feed them their minerals, and every day I resist a growing urge to hop in for a swim.

This story was based on the TypeTrigger prompt “liquids.”

The Grand Adventure of Jim the Space Rabbit

Jim the Space Rabbit had always wondered what Mars was like.

One day, he flew his space rocket to Mars. He got out and looked around for a bit. It was cold and dry.

He told his friends he’d found diamonds and met aliens, but they knew he was lying.
