I just saw the "Time keeps on Slippin'" episode and that gave me inspiration for this game, I'll tell you a situation and then I'll skip to the end of it, in 24 hours, you have to make the best story of what happened in between.

It can have no relation to what happened before. I'll start with one from the episode (it's easy):

The crew are going over ways to stop the time skips
<skip!>
They are at another Globetrotters game with Bender actually playing.

Bubblegum Tate died, and Robot Hell froze over.

Also, this would be funnier if we did it with real life (-ish) situations, like in the "I Can't Believe It's Another Quote Game!" thread, rather than ones from the shows.  The first winner should keep this in mind.

Edit:  Good point, Jicannon.  Sorry, Vette, I didn't read the whole thing.  Badass name by the way.

Welcome to the board, Corvette!

Now, do we have do something elaborate, or a quick sum up of what happened (as NOR did) instead?

Well, I'll keep in tradition and go with the latter for now, until you come back and say the word.

Flexo killed one of the players under the pretext of a traffic accident on his way to the Globetrotter's practice before the big game. Bubblegum Tate, unsure of the whereabouts of the nameless member, is so amazed by Flexo's funkalicious funk that he inducts him on the spot. Of course, in a twist of fate, Bender ties up Flexo in the locker room moments before the game, and dressed up as Flexo (goatee included), he gains his rightful position on the team, and all is good.

Just tell us what you think happened in between, I was going to have the event happening atfer the skip being the "Nude Conga Line" but chose something diffrent. Also it can be anything.

Basically this is just a advanced "Fill in the blank" style game you could just say.

Awww... I love the Nude Conga Line. I wanna be in a Nude Conga Line. We should start one some time.

Great idea anyway, Corvette!

LJ - bring up the nude conga line idea at PEELathon (or PEELcon, whatever they're calling it now), and see how well it's received.  Also, congrats on your Delivery Boy status, whenever that happened ...

Anywho, on topic:
While straining to think of a way to mathematically divert chronitons with gravity, Curly Joe suffers a debilitating aneurism.  Desparate to fill the fifth position left open while Curly recovers, Bubblegum has no choice but to turn to Bender, who has just proved his funktatious funkability on the court.  Too bad Bubblegum has no memories of Bender's funkylicious attitude when Curly Joe recoveres. *and cue sad Globetrotters theme*

Wouldn't the winner of the previous game decide the next time skip? That's generally how these games work.
Also, Welcome to PEEL, corvette!  big grin

Damn, Zoidberg227 got some funky use of the word funk. Superfunkacalaliciousexpealid ocious!

I'm sure the nude conga line will be a huge hit. Down the streets we go!

And as for the time skip.

In a horrible accident while on a delivery to a planet populated by hostile disco dancing vegetarians, Leela is temporarly paralyzed from the waist down and Fry is blinded. It's discovered that these vegetarians were in cohoots with the five most nefarious bureaucrats in the galaxy (apparently, the vegetarians can avoid all the red tape), and in order to return the favor, the vegetarians kidnapped Nibbler so the bureaucrats can enjoy their favorite dish in the world from their office, Kibbles of Nibbler Stew.

Of course, this isn't a hostile disco dancing vegetarian people secret recipe, for all those curious. The head Iron Chef was also kidnapped, but no one cares. So Fry and Leela, making the best of the situation by Fry using his legs and Leela using her eyes... eye..., they dart through the central bureaucracy after Nibbler (stuffed in a tube, of course), but will they make it??

Oh, I put all that effort in to my story, and I get no reward?  Bah! 

Nibbler has taken to running off again, and Leela is over-concerned, as usual.  She doesn't recall what happened last time he ran off, so of course she follows.  Fry, concerned that Leela is acting strange all of thesudden (again), also gives chase. 

Leela suddenly stops, confused.  Now very concerned, Fry has to carry her on his shoulders to continue the pursuit.  In his efforts to keep up with Nibbler, he fails to notice that New New Yorkers are acting stupid ... again. 

Where is the giant stupifaction ray coming from?  Will the greatest scientific minds in the Universe ever find out how to stop the movement of chronitons?  Will Curly Joe ever fully recover?  And why is the Central Beurocracy the only area unaffected?  Also, why am I asking so many questions?

... find out, in the next "Tales of Chronological Significance"!

The time period for this is pre-Nibbler.

On the way to Vergon 6, they receive a distress call from an unknown planet, but are unable to translate the language and so carry on to their destination. After making the delivery, Leela finds Nibbler and decides to keep him as a pet.

Nibbler, on his exploration of the ship, finds the distress signal saved on the ship's log. Shedding his idiotic fašade, he appeals to the crew to respond to the distress signal, as it is from Eternium, his home planet. After a brief period of adjusting to Nibbler as an intelligent being, they agree and set off for Eternium.

Eternium is in the grip of a terrible famine, and the crew decide to take the Nibblonians back to Earth for a few months to let the planet repopulate with the incredibly fast-growing ham bushes. When they get back to Earth, the Nibblonians celebrate by parading their saviours around the Planet Express building; Fry is chuckling, because he is imagining the Nibblonians trying to pick him up for his victory lap.

Only 1 entry, okay for this period, if only 1 person enters, on every 2nd day from this point, another 24 hours is given. On every first day (which in this case it is), a new one is given.

New Skip:
The crew is going to the Washing Machine to wash their uniforms.
SKIP
The building is filled with wild RomantiCorp LuviBears. They also keep eating Nibblers food right before he even put one tooth in it, which is giving Leela extra work.

NO QUADRUPLE POSTS

However, to prevent this post from being spam, I will present an entry.

After washing their uniforms, the Planet Express crew had to make a voyage to the Romanticorp to explain why their candy heart shipments did not reach their destination. The heads of the company demanded that as punishment they take all the defective bears they made and shall be forced to fix them. The bears are all bloodthristy carnivorous cannibals. Nibbler happens to be in the building and is extremely hungry, so he makes a lunge to eat one of the bears, but the other bears eat it first. This process keeps happening, then Leela notices and tries to clear the bears away to single one out using cool octuran kung-fu moves so Nibbler can eat it, but he can never get there fast enough, and Leela can't fend them all off. One always keeps slipping through.
