Welcome Back, Loyal Vidshow-watching Citizens! And now back to our show.
Episode 3: Larry-R’s Lament
Turn 126: Let’s Do Lunch…
Howard-R leaves the ashes and walks back over to where the rest of the team stands in front of the supply closet. Phil-R follows quietly behind him.
Howard-R says, “Damn, that is weird. Corpore Metal and Frankenstein Destroyers hate each others guts. PURGE and Frankenstein Destroyers makes sense but how the hell does Corpore Metal get involved. The only thing I can think of is PURGE planting Corpore Metal signs to confuse everyone.”
Dean-O says, “The victims are a mix of humans and bots. Maybe we’re looking for two killers – one Corpore Metal and one Frankenstein Destroyer?”
Issac-O announces while slapping his forehead, “It’s so obvious! Even the completely obsolete Mailatron 200 could see it, and it only has 6×6 pixels of ocular sensitivity! The Filthy Frankies are trying to frame Corpore Metal for their foul deeds! We must inform Friend Computer at once and recommend that he makes further steps to proscribe the activities of the Frankenstein Destroyers! We have ALL the evidence we need and the crime is solved!”
Aken-R says, “There are so many factors to think about! I don’t know where to begin.” Then his face brightens. “Let’s go get some lunch. While we eat, we can read the new information on our PDCs, and talk things over.” He walks over to Eula-R, and asks, “Citizen! Could you point us to the nearest food ingestion facility? And would you care to join us? I’d really like to see some more pictures of your pets!” He turns to Dean-O. “I take it that is okay with you, team leader? And I suppose we can also meet up with the proper crime lab authorities to give them the evidence we collected so far?” Then he carefully folds his piece of jagged plastic into the piece of paper and puts into the Indestructable Loyalty Transcripts Recorder. “There,” he says, “that will remain untampered with,” and he shoots a dirty look at Isaac-O.
Eula-R waves Aken-R off, “No, thank you, young clone. I’ve already taken my mandatory lunch break, and I still have a lot to do here. There’s a RED clearance cafeteria up on the 10th floor. You fellas run along. I’ll be right here if you have any more questions… Oh, and if you really are interested in catbots, why don’t you take this sales brochure I just happen to have with me. If you see anything you like, just let me know, and I’ll see if maybe I can get you a discount… I have a friend that works at the outlet, you know…” She hands Aken-R a small pamphlet with pictures of cute, cuddly catbots on the front and smiles warmly.
We shall return to the PBEM Network’s presentation of The Bot Murders after these messages…
