Will Bunz an’ Katz finally get their Scout Craft back? Is Earth’s Doom about to commence? And what about our wayward duo’s new “Friends” who they’ll be meeting shortly into our next installment??
Yes, find out the answers (maybe) – plus other things that you didn’t really need to know, Next Time! Sorry that there doesn’t seem to be any excitement this time around – sometimes you jus’ have an off day…
Ah, money, that which is much needed, and that can cure many problems. But also, (as in this case) potentially able to make still worse problems, from our anti-heroes efforts to obtain “enough” of it. Could money (now) buy Bunz and Katz to looking for a more benign objective? The Nega-Fleet, even if mainly governed by super AI’s might use earth for repair and re-supply and instead find other and more suitable targets — like maybe The Borg of the Star Fleet Universe. A good Hollywood movie and their literalness might allow minor re-programming of their objectives.
Who is that in the alley?
Thug One and Thug Two!
If you try to play with them,
you will be black and blue!
Stay away, far away,
from Thug One and Thug Two!
One thing you should never,
no, never should do,
is flashing your cash
near Thug One and Thug Two!
Who’s that lurking beside them?
Golly gee, that’s Thug Three!
Worst of all, seems to me.
–from “The Cat in the Hoodie,” by Dr. Sues
Mmmmmm… a bit of anticipatory mayhem in the offing eh what? Doesn’t Bunz look all cute and totally helpless in her pleated plaid skirt and vest? Doesn’t she look like the easiest bespectacled and pony-tailed mark ever contemplated? An ally thug’s dream. You would never know that behind that innocent facade lurks the remorseless and implacable bat wielding bat-temp. A cunning and utterly ruthless creature of the Negafleet. A creature so foul, so cruel that no man has yet fought with it and lived! The bones of full fifty men lie strewn about it’s lair!… Well, maybe not that last bit but she’s pretty tough. Villainous thugs beware for here there be dragons!
Bunz does look so neat and clean in her new outfit. Thugs 1 through 3 have the idea of un-doing the new look of course. And regard to the money in her hands, I wonder if she likes keeping more of it, with regard to the new tax rates?
Nah, doubtless Crunn was paying her under the table. You just know a grungy, anti-heroine would be part of the underground economy.
Well, as an Illegal Alien, naturally she has no choice but to work underground. No doubt the ICE would like to get hold of her. No doubt they would greatly regret it a few seconds later.
Crunn is a bit of a mysterious figure. It looked like Bat-guy was working for him in the story. However the alter-ego of Bat-guy was at one time so rich as to set up Crunn’s organization (as well as perhaps even several Bat-caves). The several movies used that as a plot device. To deal with people like Bat-temp, Crunn would have to deal with the underground economy. But with the vast assets left to him, to stay under the radar of the IRS, the bulk of this would have to be explained away as part of the above-ground economy. And Bat-guy himself. Is he so prideful that he prefers receiving pies in the face on TV from an abominable clown, rather than remember that as once super rich (though penny-less today) — he must have the potential for vast credit, that would let him start over?
A thought. Bunz now has in her estimation enough money to get her space craft out of storage. And she wants it fixed. But faithful Katz has doubts that he can do it. Or maybe he looks at it as too much [work!] as a character on “The Many Loves of Dobbi Gillus would sometimes expound in painful terror.
But of all the characters thus far introduced in the story, only Bat-guy of the pie in the face TV show, has the required gray matter to take on such a project. Though would he?
Ahem… I imagine Quag’s lawyer (also Notary Public, Small Appliance Repair and Dogs Walked) has already informed him that Batz should have no relationship whatever with *The B—-N*™, (copyright all to hell and back), so we must assume that Crunn, Bannister & Seagoon is merely a seedy little Temp agency in a seedy little part of town, who support themselves by taking a cut of their clients’ wages (and rewards)… and that among those clients are some odd types with delusions of grandeur and dubious crimefighting skills, such as Bat-Guy. Of course, as an equal-opportunity business, Crunnn & Co. also offer temp service employees to real criminal enterprises, even the US government… Which might explain a lot…
Quag has a lawyer? Dewey, Cheatem & Howe?
