    REPAIRMEN: Ok Mr. Cyclops. we’re ready to fix the Maytag.

    CYCLOPS: And you better not goof off like you did last time. Today I’ll be keeping an eye on you!

    REPAIRMEN: (They stand stock still, then start to vibrate softly, to quiver, a snort escaping, sideways glances at each other, elbow in the ribs, then a chuckle, a stifled squeal, looking up and down . . .)

    CYCLOPS: Is something funny?

    They’re repairmen _and_ bodysnatchers? I guess they’ve come to raid us for spare parts.

    This cover should have been here last Wednesday.

    And to think I’ve been wondering all these years who to call when your central heating installation is suffering from a demon infestation.

    One of the more over the top bits of The Odyssey that was edited out of the final draft.

    ‘The body-snatchers from Beyond’ with a capital B. I wondered about their claim to not be using cows in Beyond Burgers. They must be in league with this lot

    Impossible, you say?

    Hoodies on. Check.
    Atomic-powered screwdrivers. Check.
    Let’s start repairing!

    So, if you stay off the ice, the body-snatchers/repairmen can’t get you?

    Looks bad for Hans Brinker.

    @BC: GSS!

    You know, they’re going to have trouble running around Earth and snatching bodies in those outfits without being noticed. Perhaps they can pretend they’re cosplayers?

    What are those orange dots on the (slightly less orange) background supposed to be? Stars? Floating Worlds? A side effect of the jets on those rockets? Cyclops eyes?

    Speaking of rockets, did they each arrive on Earth on one little rocket of their own? Presumably the rockets are now leaving to park in orbit. Hopefully the guy with the pickup signaller didn’t leave it in his other cloak, or they _will_ find themselves having to repair washing machines and cursed central heating systems to make a living.

    The repairman on the far left is showing quite a bit of thigh.

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: Or if the tiny rockets land on auto as well as Musk’s latest don’t.

    GSS to Mr. Yngve!
