Quotes of the Week

1 – LCM Len Eode: “I think the Space Slug Queen did a wonderful job is his reign over the Warrior for the 20 hours or so that it happened for...Though I have to say, I think that may be the strangest thing that has happened to me, and I live with LT Spiffy“

That’s gotta be something…

2 – LC Plif: “Yeah, lots of diseases over there on the Warrior. Heard there was one like a Goat Flu or something.”

MAJ Flelm: “I may or may not already be infected. Now I have to go chew on some durasteel.”

Yummy…
