My body was dying. Starting the transfer to a new one, I reminded myself “Today is the first day of the last of your lives.”

I love this one. It's a little bit Doctor Who, a little bit 'The Hidden', with a little Body Snatchers thrown in for good measure.

Bo's resume was handed back to him. "I'm sorry, sir. Job opportunities for spontaneous self-immolation are limited."

And a little bit country, a little bit rock n' roll. A little bit me, a little bit you.... Er, I'm gonna stop now.

Adolf grabbed the Luger on his desk. As another time traveler approached, he thought to himself, “It must be Thursday…”

Now you've made me want to remember the name of that story that had scores of clowns, from various points in the future, popping in on Nazi Germany. They're rounded up, but one TT manages to kill the wrong guy and make things worse.

I told my wife, "Doctor Sweeny says that Viagra solves many birds with one bone."
I'm due to leave the hospital next week.

Yeah, Adolf probably knew first hand whether time travel was possible or not, from the amount of visitors he received... never heard of the story mentioned, but Hitler-killing Time Travelers are right up there with Pact with the Devil stories when it comes to cliche themes. The BBC series Misfits gave it new treatment in an episode when a TT was killed by Hitler and he discovered his futuristic tech (a mobile phone) enabling the Nazis to back engineer it and dominate the future world.

And of course the Dr.Who mid-season teaser "Lets Kill hitler"

Here's my stab at the trope.

1/30/1933: TT-X unit #1,349,372 steps through the time rift and executes the newly elected chancellor, one more time.

(we live in the world that they never got around to.)

The time-fools killed Hitler, removing insanity from the Huns' war machine. The Third Reich died when all mankind did.

Ah, gotcha.

So this twit-fic was scrawled on the wall of Winston Churchill the 395th's 8x8 cell in Stalag 1.

One could well imagine that the Third Reich would want to keep him (or a succession of clones) around to parade on Adolf Hitler's birthday. (That poor, sad, and insane martyr, by who's death victory was finally achieved.)

I'd read a story like that!

Alas, it doesn't pass the "fridge logic" test... Churchill had way too much liver and lung damage to ever be clonable. But he was self-pickled for posterity. :D

You just need a world class geneticist. I know a couple, (but they arent Nazis.)

Also, there was more than enough viable DNA in his jowls alone.

The Man in the High Casket

A thousand years since the Time Corps killed him, der Märtyrer still looks down upon us and leads the Reich. Heil Hitler.
