Ok, this is how it's going to go:

A person comes up with a character, a place and an object from Futurama, and the next person writes a short (1-3 paragraph) story incorporating those elements. Then that person comes up with a character, place and object and the cycle repeats.

I go first:

Character: Flexo
Place: Suicide Booth
Object: Slurm can

Knowledge is power. Power corrupts. Study hard and be evil.

so you're doing this just so you don't have to be creative?

« Reply #2 on: 06-26-2007 20:48 »

No, I'm doing this because I want to see what other people will do with someone else's ideas.

Like a roleplay type thing? Ok, I'll give it a go.
Flexo was throwing a Slurm can at a suicide booth, when it dropped, he just picked it up and threw it again. There was a long queue taking turns in the suicide booth, ignoring Flexo's mysterious behaviour. Many passers by were looking, but then they just walked away.

"Stupid, damned suicide booths!" shouted Flexo. "If I had known the girders I bend were for you, I wouldn't have got the job in the first place!". Quite frankly, Flexo had had enough. He stepped into the suicide booth and killed himself.
I couldn't be bothered to do a long ending.

Bah, you forgot to come up with more plot elements.

How about this?

Flexo finds a Slurm can in a Suicide Booth.  Flexo goes in the booth and gets slammed shut on him.  Then Flexo tries to break free by avoiding the girders coming at him and by trying to break down the door.  Flexo then moves the booth from side to side and the booth falls and he comes out of it.  Then Bender walks down the street and laughs at his rival, and takes a picture of him and sends it to the robot mental hospital. 

I did my best here.

Shut the hell up. I said I couldn't be bothered.

Kurt...sigh.  Don't beat yourself up.  At least it was mostly lucid.

Bender is next in line for the suicide booth.  The door opens and Flexo steps out.
Bender: Flexo!
Flexo: Bender?  What are you doing here?
Bender: I've come to end my pitiful, meaningless existence.  What the hell are you doing here?
Flexo: I came for a drink. (He takes a sip from a Slurm can)
Bender: What are you talking about?  The is a suicide booth, not a snack machine.
Flexo: Apparently you've never read the ingredient list.

In keeping with the improvising theme, I will now improvise the next exercise.

OK, here goes:

Bender: Oh my god! Doom is impending!
Leela: That doesn't sound like something you would usually say.
Bender: Well, it is. There's a black hole right there.
Leela: Crap.
Fry: Shit.
Bender: Fudge.
Leela: What?
Bender: Sorry, I meant to say fudge. I mean fudge. What the hell is wrong with me?
