Think before you name

Post by Conan » Wed May 09, 2012 9:03 pm

With a whoosh, Seeker First Class Twirling Laughter opened the hatch on the capsule and stepped onto the surface of the planet. The setting sun, turned a delicate shade of purple by the atmosphere, illuminated a raucous landscape of ferns and squat, orange bipedal beasts. Using a thought, Twirling Laughter asked The Galactic Grid for the name of this planet. A copy of an ancient text appeared, one of the few to survive the numerous Apocalypses that had plagued mankind, the International Star Registry. Twirling Laughter wondered who this fair maiden was that this planet was named for, this “Snooki”.

Weird. I just flashed a thought about some Norm Sherman Elder god in R’lyeh singing this anguished love song about some girl who is turning into Snooki.

Where does this stuff come from?

How can I stop it?
