(A Urusei Yatsura MSTing)

MSTed From the Desk of Megane 6.7 and Zoogz

"My Kid's An Alien!" is the property of Andrew D. Johnson and he's 
welcome to it.  I do not intend to offend him for making fun of his work 
like this but I figure it's only a matter of time before someone does.  
Think of this as another form of C&C.  It's all meant in good fun.  ;)

(Door 6: It's a metal door with no knob.  Before you can do anything, it's
yanked off its hinges from the other side by a tow truck.)

(Door 5: It's an old fashioned elevator.  Both sets of doors open for you
as you pass through.)

(Door 4: It's made of dominoes.  You tip the lead one over and watch as
the pile slowly lowers until it's half its original size and you step over it.)

(Door 3: It's filled with cute stuffed toys.  You cuddle them for awhile
before proceeding.)

(Door 2. It's solid black marble. An Ankh floats from behind you and
touches the door. The door vanishes.)

(Door 1: It's a castle gate that rises into the ceiling, revealing a
drawbridge that slowly lowers to the ground.  You cross it cautiously,
looking for moat monsters.)

(Door .7: It's a swirling blue vortex.  Suddenly a large hand reaches out
of its center and pulls you inside.)

     Joel emerged from the vortex into the theater with Tom in his arms,
Crow emerging a moment later and following close behind.  Stepping
over the air grate that prevented Tom from entering the theater on his
own, Joel placed him down on one of the theater seats and sat next to
him, Crow sitting on his right.



The Final Chapter

Joel: That reminds me, did Jason take Manhattan yet?

Crow: God willing, we won't all meet again in 'My Kid's An Alien 2: 
The Search for More Money'.

Based on the popular characters by Rumiko Takahashi and the popular 
novel by Ray Bradbury. Okay, so it's not based on anything by Bradbury. 
It just makes me seem sophisticated.

Tom: Which the narration quickly dispels.

Ataru was about to ask if that was his mom when he came to again, but 
suddenly remembered that what had happened was as real as could 
possibly be. 

Crow: <Ataru> But enough about the Matrix, what's this I hear about 
a woman in a red dress? 

He opened his eyes to find himself standing in place. In front of him 
some humanlike forms were milling around. When his eyes focused 
more, he noticed they were actually aliens! But not Onis, rather those 
aliens everyone called the "Grays", the ones that people claimed 
always abducted them. 

Tom: This would be the same people that... populate shows like 
Jeremy Spangler.  The fanfic finally comes full-circle!

Joel: Of course, those isolated reports of people being captured by 
Soggies deserved all the shame and scorn they could get.

Lum had once told him that the Grays came from Orion's Belt and were 
some of the most dangerous creatures in the universe. They were very 
weak physically, but possessed the power to control minds and literally 
use other beings as puppets to carry out their schemes. 

Tom: Oh please, like anybody would let themselves be used like a puppet!  
That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever... aw crap, there goes my head 
again, could you grab that for me, Trace?

Apparently they had tried several times to conquer Earth, but fortunately 
for Earthlings, all of Earth's leaders knew about them and managed to 
keep them at bay with their military superiority. But now they seemed 
to have captured him and placed his friends and parents under their 

Crow: Truly the V-Chip has so many applications.

Ataru glanced around at his surroundings. They seemed to be in what 
looked like an airplane hangar, with vintage jeeps and aircraft off to 
the sides. But closer to them was the Grays' ship, a flying saucer!

Joel: Named after the bombed pilot.

Tom: They tried a flying teacup but the fuel kept spilling.

And over there, next to those other Grays, was.

Joel: A relaxing Ocean Blue with just a hint of Silver.


"Darling! Get us out of this!" Sure enough, there in a force-field cage 
formed by blue "bars", were Lum, Ran, Benten, Oyuki, and Lum's 
parents. Lum was huge now, barely contained by even her skimpy 

Tom: <Lum> Run, darling!  They do the anal probes... AND LEAVE 

That was Ataru's baby in there. Overjoyed to see her, he tried to run 
over there. But to his shock, he couldn't move.

"Rrrrgh!" he groaned. "Oh Lum-chan, I can't move!"

"Oh no," she sobbed, starting to cry. "They put you in a force field too! 

Joel: <Ataru> Actually, they just tied my shoelaces together.

Tom: <Lum> A knot!?  BASTARDS!!!

Ataru screamed a little when one of the grays strode up to him, staring 
him down with those unsettling, insect-like eyes. "So, I have heard 
that Oni is your wife."

Crow: <Gray> It's just a short step from her to me... am I sexy?

"You just wait till I get out of this, Space Ant!" Ataru yelled, trying hard 
to move. "What do you want her and those other aliens for, anyway?"

Crow: <Gray> Just a little sugar, baby.

Tom: <Gray> Oh, I'm just building an ark... hope you like your new 
five by five cubit room.

"Simple, really," answered the Gray officer in front of him. "We need 
fuel for our spaceships in our quest to conquer the universe. When news 
spread that you, an Earthling, had impregnated an Oni, we couldn't 
believe our luck. The yolk of Oni eggs makes an excellent fuel source. 
Plus, Oni flesh is quite tasty." 

Joel: <Gray> And we use their skins to role-play.

Crow: <Ataru> Wow, and here I thought it was that edible body 
lotion we used.

After he said this, he peeled back his lips (or at least where his lips 
should have been), and revealed a mouthful of sinister, needle-like 
teeth, which he licked with a lavender tongue.

Tom: And his uvula was a foot in diameter and fluorescent green.

Crow: And don't even ask about his tonsils.

Ataru exploded. "You little gray bastard! I'll tear you apart! No one eats 
my wife if I can do anything about it!"

"But I don't think there is much you can do about it," continued the Gray 

Joel: <Ataru> But she's not recommended by Atkins!  You can't 
abandon the plan now!

He squinted his eyes slightly and suddenly a powerful electric current 
coursed through Ataru's body. It must have had at least three times 
the voltage of Lum's normal shocks. As he stood there, unable to move, 
feeling like a microwaved TV dinner, the sinister Gray continued his 

Tom: <Gray> It was never easy for me.  I was born a poor black child...

"So we hypnotized some American government agents, and sent them to 
kidnap the pregnant Oni girl and her friends and family. This would 
inevitably lead to a war between your pathetic planet and the far- 
superior militaries of Planets Uru, Fukinokami, and Neptune, and would 
ultimately spell the end of the human race, leaving Earth ripe for our 

Tom: <Ataru as Scott Evil> I have a gun in my room.  Give me five 
seconds, I'll come back and blow my brains out.

But then when the Urusian ship you were on was sucked into a wormhole 
that sent you back in time to the Christian year 1947, we thought of an 
even better idea. 

Crow: <Gray> We decided to let the sisters have you.  One good ruler 
upside the head will set you right!

We would hypnotize the American government into giving us the formula 
for the atomic bomb, at a time when the technology was brand new and 
only available to the Americans. Then we would use it to not only wipe 
out human civilization, but also those of the known universe. 

Joel: They can fly through space and can't figure out an atom bomb?

Crow: This is sounding more and more like a Dr. Claw scheme.

They may have more sophisticated technology and better organized 
militaries, but so far, the atomic bomb is one of the most destructive 
weapons in the entire universe. And now that it is in our power, there 
is nothing you can do to stop us."

Tom: Suddenly millions of heroes, both action and super, appeared 
right on cue.

"Dang it," he muttered, "where's Ten-chan when you need him.again? I 
mean, even if he was becoming the Jiminy Cricket to my Pinocchio, he 
was still right, and he saved my ass last time!"

Crow: <Ataru> I got sick of having to show him that I was a real boy.

"Sorry, Ataru-chan," Ten answered, fluttering up to him. "But we can't 
let you do that." To Ataru's horror, the Oni toddler also had that 
unsettling blank look in his eyes too. 

"Aghhh!" he groaned. "Not you too! Now what am I supposed to do?"

Tom: I suggest heavy and persistent use of the nearest boomstick.

"There's no need to be afraid," the Gray officer calmly told him. "All we 
need for you to do for us now is to take this laser knife and cut open 
your wife, so we can have her egg. 

Crow: <Ataru> Oh, if that's all you... W-WHAT!?

Joel: <Gray> Mmm... she may be incredible but she's not all that 

And as for the rest, they shall spend the rest of their lives as slaves in our 
plutonium mines in the Crab Nebula. I'll start by turning off your force 

"The second you do," Ataru growled, as the alien held up a silvery gun, 
"I'm gonna perform an alien autopsy on you, without knives or 

Tom: Now see?  This is why you don't give the laser scalpel to the only 
freaking person you DIDN'T hypnotize.

"Well, I don't think you will," the little gray person answered. "I don't 
think you will." He(she?) fixed its eyes on Ataru. Those deep, dark 
pools of blackness, holes from which nothing could escape, like black 
holes, black, deep, dark.

Crow: <Gray> You'll be Maximilian... and you can call me Dr. Reinhardt, 

The world seemed to grow dull and time itself seemed to slow down. 
The alien's mighty power was drawing him closer, ever closer, 
commanding him to kill Lum. 

Joel: <Ataru> We no hurts the hobbitses!  But they have my precioussss!

"Darling." The voice sounded familiar, unknown yet welcoming, like 
water on the lips of a man crawling across the desert. Ataru glanced 
away from the blackness to focus on a green glow slightly above his eye 
level. There, in the midst of it, was the most gorgeous woman he had 
ever seen. She had a perfect figure, clad only in a skimpy tiger-striped 
bikini, long hair, and childlike blue eyes. 

Crow: ...which were quickly passed over for her skimpy tiger-striped 
bikini again.

But something about her was different from all the others; her hair was 
green, and small, stubby horns poked out of the top of her head. She 
was gently floating above his eye level, like a leaf in a breeze. She 
seemed so strange and exotic, and yet also somehow familiar to Ataru. 

Crow: Ahhh... this paragraph is so relaxing... all I need now is a bubbling 
hot tub and a tub of Haagen-Dazs... maybe some soft guitar and.... 

(Crow notices Tom and Joel staring at him)  

Crow: What!?  I've been stressed out lately, OKAY!?

"Darling, I love you with all my heart. Please, please don't hurt me or 
our child."

Crow: <Ataru> Can I at least administer a spanking?  

Tom: <Lum> But the baby isn't even born yet!  

Crow: <Ataru, slyly> I know. 

Somehow her words spoke to him more strongly than the eyes that were 
trying to become his mind. Like they were trying to reawaken something 
in him that he had forgot. Like he had to do something else.

Joel: <Ataru> Every time I think of Lum scolding.... oh shoot, the garbage!

"Please, Darling?" pleaded the otherworldly girl, with a plaintive tone 
that nearly made Ataru drop to his knees and start to cry. As he 
approached her, with the evil-looking laser knife beam in his arms aimed 
at her, she sniffed and tears ran from her eyes like a faucet. 

Tom: Flash Gordon was NEVER this weepy.

Joel: It's not the impending surgery without anesthesia... it's that Ataru 
smells like sauerkraut and bar onions.

"These people are evil, Darling! Don't listen to them! Their next move 
will be to use you and your friends and family to destroy your planet!"

But I must, he thought. But I don't really want to, do I ?, he thought.

"Yes," answered a cold yet calm voice. "Yes you must. To perform our 
demands is bliss."

Crow: Man, this is one intense episode of Fear Factor.

"No, Darling!" sobbed the girl. "Please listen to me! Use your mental 
energy to break this spell!"

Tom: <Lum> Think with your OTHER HEAD!

Mental energy, he thought. I never had much mental energy. My average 
is a D+. How should I stop them?  

"There is no way," answered the other voice. "Let us be your guides and 
do our bidding."

Joel: Internal monotone... err, monologue by Ben Stein.

Crow: <Ataru> I'm so confused... should I be saving Lum or Jessie 

"Please, Darling?" cooed the floating, bikini-clad girl, who bobbed down 
to Ataru and kissed him passionately. Ataru could feel himself shifting 
into high gear as she started peeling away her skimpy clothing, rubbing 
herself against him, burying her tongue in his mouth, grabbing and 
squeezing with her arms everywhere.

Crow: <Lum, seductively> You don't need to cut me open to get 
inside me....

Tom: I'd say that this is nothing more than a bad "Boogie Nights" remake, 
but it's always nighttime in space...

"Lum-chan," he gasped. It was all coming back to him now. "Oh 
Lum-chan, how I love you! I could never >let anything bad happen to 
you!" The blackness vanished from Ataru's field of vision, and soon 
things fell back into focus.

Crow: And as Ataru witnessed the bloody carnage on the floor, he 
remarked,  "Why did I make out with a laser scalpel in my hand?"

He was now standing before the force field cage, with the laser knife 
still held in position.  Lum, plump and rosy with the baby, cowered in 
the corner with a pinched face and red, tear-stained cheeks. 

Joel: <Ataru> Hey, wait... you weren't pregnant in my head!

She braced herself for the pain when her Darling swung the knife forward.
and slashed the wires powering the force field generator! Sure enough, 
the blue beams vanished.

Crow: <Ataru> Gee... I missed.

"Yeah!" howled Benten. "Gonna use us for slave labor and eat my friend; 
I don't think so! Eat my boots!" And she rushed toward the Grays.

Tom: <Gray> We told you already, we only eat Oni...gackk!!

The Gray commanders quickly grabbed their energy blasters, but Ataru 
knocked some out of their hands (along with their heads and arms), 
while Benten and Lum's parents took care of the rest.

Joel: <Benten> Here, have a pina colada... your feet look like they 
need a rub.

Crow: And the truth was revealed that the Grays were nothing more 
than some renegade Potato Heads.

"Guys!" Ataru announced to his friends, parents, and some American 
soldiers standing hypnotized nearby. "Think about something you 
really, really like! I tried thinking about Lum naked! Okay, it doesn't 
have to be that specific or explicit, but you can picture anything you 
truly love!"

Joel: Gee, thanks Tony Robbins.

So Ataru's dad pictured himself making out naked with his wife on a 
tropical beach. Ataru's mom pictured herself making out naked with 
Rei on the same beach. Mendo pictured himself making out naked with 
Lum, Sakura, and Asuka on the same beach.

Tom: Yes, it's the long awaited 'Urusei Yatsura Expansion Pack' 
for 'Sexy Beach 2'!

Crow: Meanwhile, Notch Johnson taped them all from the stands at 
Malibu Adjacent.

Shinobu pictured herself making out naked with Inaba.  Sakura pictured 
herself making out naked with Tsubame. Ten pictured making out naked 
with.well, just about every girl in Tomobiki (even Ataru's mom was 
there), except of course for Mako.

Joel: <Ataru> Um, okay... I'll just go grab a sandwich or something... let 
me know when you're done... um... picturing.

And Cherry pictured himself eating a full-course luau banquet on the 
beach, naked. Not that he had some sick food fetish, but he was 
actually a nudist at heart. He also wanted to try and get rid of his tan 
line. If you just pictured what Cherry's tan line looks like, you win this 
year's "Sick Little Monkey of the Year" award.

Crow: As opposed to the dolt WRITING about Cherry's tan line?

"Charrrrrrrge, men!" bellowed Sakura, once she had been jolted out of 
her trance. The Tomobiki Eight rushed toward the aliens, along with 
Lum's parents and friends, and a couple hundred formerly mesmerized 
American soldiers. 

All: <American soldiers> YOOOOOOOO JOE!!!

The aliens tried their mind-control powers on them, but now that they 
all had their minds set on a clear task, they could mow down the 
fragile Grays like corn.

Tom: I'd like to mow down that analogy with a roto-tiller.

Crow: If you're expecting originality this far in...

In the end, all the crew suffered were some injuries, burns, and 
contusions. Ataru stood back and gazed at the crumpled, torn bodies 
of the Grays. 

Joel: Really makes you think, don't it?

Crow: <Ataru> Well, I can't burn 'em.  I don't have a permit.

"Damn," he gaped, "I sleep with Lum just once and the next thing I  
know, I'm back in time in 1947 killing aliens in New Mexico. 

Tom: Just imagine if he slept with Buffy instead...

Maybe they were right about how a butterfly that flaps its wings in 
Brazil causes a typhoon in Japan."

Joel: Maybe if the butterfly was MOTHRA.

Crow: Applications of chaos theory to fanfics... clearly THIS ONE 
spun way out of control.

Tom: <Ian Malcolm> This fanfic is not safe.

"Well, either way," Shinobu added, "your hentai sense saved us all. 
Who'd have thought your libido would one day be our salvation, 
especially after all the trouble it's gotten us into over the years?"

Crow: Hey, sweet job author!  Maybe next time, we can all be saved 
by Mendo's acne!

Tom: Or Cherry's tan line.

"Darling-oop! I think I'm due to lay the egg soon," Lum gasped. 

Joel: <Ataru> About three minutes, right?

Sure enough, she was having trouble breathing, and couldn't keep her 
legs together.

Tom: Yep, that's pretty much how this whole mess started.

"As school nurse, I'll help deliver this.egg," Sakura offered. She went up 
to the laboring alien as the others eagerly gathered around.

Crow: <Sakura> Uncle, put that bearnaise sauce away!

Joel: <Sakura> You... boil water!  You... get the egg dye!  You... 
find a spoon!

Lum's mom said something in the chirpy Oni language which translated 
to, "Oh! I'm going to be a grandmother soon!" (Actually, our translators 
have no idea what it actually meant, but we can assume it was along 
those lines.)

Crow: <Author> Translated verbatim?  Okay... "I'm gowwana be a 
grwandmotha soon!  I tought I taw the egg!"

As Sakura offered breathing exercises and Ataru bit his lip awaiting the 
news, he heard the engine of a Jeep entering the hangar. Closely 
escorted by dark-suited Secret Service agents, was an important-looking 
figure with specs and a cliff-like jaw. 

Joel: Wow, Egon Spengler's really come up in the world.

Crow: Oh great, they must be here to recruit guests for the Soaprah 
Spinfrey show.

"All stand at attention for Harry Truman, President of the United States!"

The President grimaced slightly at the mutilated alien bodies, leaking 
lavender blood. "So, what exactly is going on here?" he asked.

Crow: <Ataru> Well, I invaded the alien's pearl harbor and now she's 
dropping the bomb.

Tom: Wow... Ataru's got quite a set of euphemisms to say that to 
the President.

"It's.uh, quite an interesting story here, Mr. President," answered the 
general in charge of Roswell Army Air Field. "Some evil aliens landed 
here with apparent intent to conquer Earth. They had also kidnapped 
some other, peaceful aliens, and one of those is about to give birth."

Crow: <General> Then the Third Pixie Battalion along with First 
Motorized Kobolds knocked out the resistance on our left flank...

"Actually, just lay an egg," corrected Mr. Invader. "The baby won't 
hatch for another nine months."

"Right. Anyway, the evil ones were defeated by our troops here and 
these fine young Japanese people, who claim to be from the year 2002."

The President briefly rolled his eyes. "Right," he said. 

Tom: Don't feel bad, Harry.  It wasn't that believable to us either.

Joel: <Truman> I could use a warm bed and a hot Bess right about 

"I'm.not gonna ask any more questions, but I am gonna want to have 
these extraterrestrial bodies and spacecraft kept here for scientific 
research. And I'd also like this hangar, number 18, kept off limits from 
now on."

Crow: This is reading like a bad Clive Cussler book.

"Yeah, yeah," exclaimed Mendo in English. "Come witness the miracle 
of creation!"

Tom: He's so eager for this... he must've bought the baby.

About fifteen minutes later.

"Ewww!" groaned Shinobu.

"Yecch," answered Ataru.

"Barfff!" went Mendo.

(Crow starts tossing something at the screen, catching Joel's attention.)

Joel: Hey Crow, quit trying to throw this poor excuse for theater 
popcorn into their mouths.

Crow: Well, what else should I throw at the screen, my lowered 

Everyone standing in the room, even the famously rugged President 
Truman, were knocked over like bowling pins.

Crow: Great, now she just needs to get pregnant eleven more times and 
go for a perfect game.

About two thousand miles away, in a tiny Minnesota town called 
Frostbite Falls, a small flying squirrel and a large, stupid moose were 
sitting together outside a shack. "You hear something, Rocky?" asked 
the moose. 

"Yeah, sounds like the whistle at the lumber mill again," answered the 

Tom: Well, this story IS a fractured fairy tale.

Meanwhile, back in Roswell, Lum sat panting in front of a large, wet egg 
with a shell colored lavender and dotted with pink speckles, about the 
size of Ten. 

Joel: Then she chucked it at a nearby cloud with a question mark on it.

Although most of the crew had nearly lost their lunches watching the 
spectacle, and Mendo had, they erupted in cheers for Lum. Ataru 
joyously ran over and hugged her. "Oh Darling," she sighed, "thank you. 
I can't wait for the baby to hatch."

Crow: <Lum> You're getting a vasectomy NOW.

President Truman offered thanks and the U.S. Army bade them farewell 
as the group piled into the Gray's old flying saucer, and flew back 
through the wormhole to their time. 

Tom: But not before finding a stray Neelix first.

Joel: <Ataru> Can't you please just toss him back out of the airlock?

Their first stop was Washington, D.C., where Lum's parents, etc. helped 
straighten out the mess between the planets. 

Crow: <Invaders> We now realize that you're not smart enough to pull 
something like this, but it's purely within the realm of reason for you to 
screw up this massively on accident.

The U.S. government hid the saucer at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base 
in Ohio, where most of the wreckage from the Roswell crash had been 
stored. After a memorial service for the Oni soldiers who had been killed 
in the Roswell crash, the President flew them home to Japan on Air Force 
One, while helping straighten things out with the Japanese government. 

Joel: <President> Look, we already apologized for the soda jerk... All 
right, we'll take away his social security and kick his cane from 
underneath him, will THAT appease you!?

Once home, Ataru's parents helped set up a "nest" of old sheets and 
clothes where Lum could sit on her egg.

Tom: Old sheets and clothes!?  Lum, you're the daughter of a planet ruler!  
Tell your cheap ass parents to open the purse strings and get their only 
child some PILLOWS for god's sake!

Oni mothers have to do so for the entire nine-month duration not only 
to keep it warm, but also to establish an early bond between mother 
and child. It helps develop telepathic powers.

Joel: <Lum> Oh my god, my baby wants to kill me!  

Crow: <Baby>  Blast!  She wasn't supposed to know till AFTER 
the explosion!

It was a rather dull nine months without Lum to liven things up in 
Tomobiki, but of course the wait would be well worth it.

Tom: Still, Ataru stayed by Lum's side the entire time right after her 
father broke his legs.

Crow: Amazingly enough, nine months later Harry Truman hatched.

The big day came on a brisk, windy day in mid-October. The Moroboshi 
house was crammed with journalists, but Lum didn't mind. She had 
always wanted to be a mother, and her dream would soon finally come 
true. She had no problem with cameras constantly flashing in front of 
her face, with her "Darling" in her arms, putting on a typically goofy 

Crow: <Spangler> And just like in television, happy endings do happen.  
Take care of yourselves.  This has been Jeremy's Final Thoughts.

"Oh, Ataru-kun!" said Shinobu, sobbing with happiness. "Good luck 
with your baby! I'm sorry about how I yelled at you when you first got 
Lum pregnant! I think you'll make a great dad!"

Tom: <Shinobu> Almost as great as Michael Jackson!

"Heh, heh," laughed Ataru's dad, leafing through some yen bills. "Go 
ahead and have as many kids as you want. If it means all these 
royalties, go get 'em!"

Joel: <Ataru> Sorry dad, our fifteen minutes are up.  Unless Lum can lay 
a double-yolked egg...

"Hey, how about it, hon?" Ataru asked his wife, a hungry grin on his 

Crow: <Lum> Sure, what's another nine months stuck in this dink 
apartment?  Moron.

"Not tonight, Darling. I'll probably be having to nurse the baby and 
change its diaper. Maybe this weekend." She pulled him in again and 
smooched him some more, to the delight of all the photographers. "Oh! 
I can see the first cracks!"  

Everyone gathered closer. Sure enough, the baby was starting to punch 
cracks in the shell.

Joel: If it says "Nanu nanu", I will get so ticked off...

Crow: <baby> WAHHHHH!!  I'm claustrophobic!  I'm scared of the dark!  


"Awright! Lummy's a mommy!" shouted Benten. "Attababy! Show that 
shell no mercy!"

"Yay! A new cousin!" cheered Ten.

"Agghh! We're grandparents!" screamed Ataru's parents.

"Hooray," added Oyuki simply in her standard monotone.

Crow: <Oyuki> Can I get paid now?

Tom: So... what?  Will the egg hatch and be a Gray? Why the hell are 
we still sitting here?

The first piece gave way.Then the shell split in two, and folded open like 
a book. Out floated a tiny Oni girl! She had her mom's demure face and 
wide eyes, and her dad's black hair, but hers was long and straight, also 
like her mom's.

Joel: And Ataru knew that it was much more than a hunch...

The baby yawned and stretched in front of the many flashbulbs. Ran 
quickly dashed forward, dried her off, and dressed her in a small 
tiger-striped dress similar to the one Lum had worn as a girl. "Mommy!" 
cried the little one, fluttering toward her mother.

"Darling, I've done all the work so far," Lum told her husband, beaming 
at their brand-new daughter. "Why don't you name her?"

"Okay." Ataru thought for a bit. 

Crow: <Ataru> Let's see, no i's at the end of her name... nothing edible 
or even remotely suggestive... Bertha!

"How 'bout Rumiko, after my favorite manga artist."

"You mean the beloved creator of 'Ranma �', the Mermaid Saga, and 
'Inu-yasha'?" asked Mendo.

"But you forgot one," added Shinobu. " 'Maison Ikkoku'! I love that 
series; it's so romantic!"

Joel: Shouldn't Megane be here to protest this blatant breaking of the 
fourth wall?

"I love that choice!" Lum cooed. She handed the baby to Ataru's waiting 
arms. "Hello, honey. Your name is Rumiko-chan, or Ruko for short. 
This is your daddy."

Tom: Will she shock or burn him?  Boy, the suspense is just killing me.

"Hi," greeted Ruko, waving at her father. Ataru was struck once again 
by how intelligent Oni babies are by Earthling standards, but since they 
do hatch from eggs, that means their heads and brains don't have to be 
undersized at birth to squeeze out the birth canal.

Crow: <Ataru> Wait a minute... there's a Leap Pad in this eggshell!  
Fraud!  FRAUD!!!

Then she glanced over a bit and noticed Mendo.

The cameras followed Ruko as she clumsily fluttered toward him and 
embraced his arm near the shoulder. "Hiya, stud! What's your name?"

Crow: Yeah, she's a Moroboshi all right.

Joel: <Mendo> The name's Mendo and the password is "pre-nuptial".

Everyone in the room bent over laughing as Mendo frightenedly tried to 
shake off the amorous alien baby. "That's Shutaro Mendo, the richest 
boy on the planet!" giggled Shinobu. "Good luck with him; he's quite 
the player!"

Tom: Anna Nicole would be horrified.  You marry for money only when 
the spouse is *over* eighty.

"Well, hey, Darling," drawled Ruko, "are you single?"

"Well, uhh, sorta." answered Mendo. "Gahhhh, you Onis freak me out! 
Go play with your parents!" And he grabbed Ruko by her tiny horns 
and dragged her back to the waiting Ataru and Lum. They, Shinobu, 
Sakura, Cherry, and Ataru's parents gasped with surprise.

"Mendo!" began Lum. "Y-you just grabbed Ruko's horns! Do you know 
what that means?"

Joel: 25 to life?


Ataru exploded with laughter. "It means you have to marry her, just like 
what happened with me and Lum!  Congratulations, buddy!"

"Darling!" cried Ruko, planting kisses all over Mendo's face. 

Tom: End end end the 'fic, get it off the screen... hurry hurry hurry 
hurry or I'm gonna scream...

Crow: Don't they have to play tag first?

"Yes I will marry you! Oh, this is the happiest day of my life! Of course, 
we'll have to wait till I'm 16; then we can get married in the American 
state of Louisiana, but until then, I'm moving in with you, t'cha!" By 
now everyone in the room, even the journalists, were laughing so hard 
most of them were wetting their pants. 

Joel: It sounds like we could use a mass housebreaking here.

Mendo, meanwhile, rolled his eyes into the back of his head and collapsed 
to the ground.

Tom: Ziggy could've pulled him out during the Truman scene, but she 
wanted to enjoy the show first.

The End

Crow: That was honestly the worst episode of Jeremy Spangler I've 
ever seen.

Tom: <Randy Newman, singing> Fanfic over and it sucked...

Joel: I can bet that this isn't exactly going into the Truman Library.

Crow: Anybody got a pen and paper?

Joel: [staring at Crow] Are you kidding?

Crow: Yes.

Joel: Seriously though, anybody got anything to say about this fanfic 
besides the usual gripes, grunts and groans?

Tom: Res ipsa loquitur.

Joel: Come again?

Crow: I think that's Latin, Joel.  <imitates Val Kilmer> Evidently Mr. 
Servo is an educated bot... now I really hate him.

Joel: But what does it mean?

Crow: Hell if I know.  Look it up.

Tom: Res ipsa loquitur.

Crow: Yeah!  Ipso Facto THIS, you stupid fanfic!

Joel: <chuckling> Whatever guys.  Can we get out of here now?  My 
knees are getting stiff.

Tom: Yeah, mine too.

Crow: You don't have any knees, Servo.

Tom: Details, details, let's scram already!

(Joel picks up Tom and follows Crow out of the theater)

*     *     *


     Crow and Tom stood on the bridge, flanking Joel who was currently 
wearing a white baseball cap backwards and peering through a periscope

     "Joel, are you sure this is such a good idea?  Remember what happened
to the oni ship?"  Crow cautioned.

     "Ataru and Ten weren't in control of the ship, we are!  All we have to 
do is find this Bermuda Wormhole in space and I can guide us back down 
to Earth!"

     "But what if we end up in the past like Ataru?  I *REALLY* don't 
want to see you in a zoot suit."  Tom shuddered.

     "Just trust me, guys!  I know what I'm... what the heck is that?"  Joel 
muttered as he turned the periscope slowly as if following an object.  "The 
hell?  Cambot, give me Rocket Number 9, pronto!"

     A small object floating in earth orbit was now rapidly drifting towards 
them, a moment later, there was a loud thunk noise and the ship suddenly 
ground to a screeching halt, throwing Joel and Crow off their feet to hit 
the floor while Tom swayed unsteadily.  A moment later, the loudspeaker 
crackled to life.

     "Joel, we just came to a full dead stop, what's going on up there!?"  
Gypsy asked, concerned.

     "Well, you're not going to believe this...."  Joel replied as he got to his 
feet and looked through the periscope again.  "...but I think we've got a 
Denver boot on our ship."

    "Dare we ask why a Denver boot is floating around in space?"  Crow 
grumbled as he leaned on Tom to get back to his feet.

    "I dunno but it must be magnetized because it latched right onto us.  
Gypsy, could you go outside the ship and see if it can be removed?  I'd 
do it myself but I get...."

     "Spacesick, I know.  Hold your horses."  Gypsy replied as her 
cylindrical body passed through an access hatch like a worm emerging 
from the ground until she reached the affected area.  "It doesn't look 
good, Joel.  It's stuck on real tight and we can't blast it off without 
crippling the engines."

     "Hmm... couldn't we demagnetize the boot by...."  Joel began.

     "Forget that science stuff!  There's only one way to give da boot to 
that boot!"  Tom interrupted as he floated over the counter.  "We're 
gonna ACT that thing off!"

     "Come again?"  Joel replied, confused.

     "I get you, Servo!  Let's do it!"  Crow replied as he struck a dramatic 
pose and orchestrated music began playing.   "Home?   I have no home...." 
he began in his best Bela Lugosi.  "Hunted... DESPISED... living like an 
animal... the jungle is my home...."

     "But I shall show the vorld that I can be its master!  I shall perfect my 
own race of people... a race of atomic supermen..." Tom continued with 
his own Bela Lugosi impression.

     "THAT VILL CONQUER THE VORLD!!!"  They both exclaimed at 
the same time as the music swelled to a dramatic conclusion.  Joel was 
about to say something when he winced at the sound of shearing metal 
and suddenly the ship lurged again as if stung.

     "Wow, that's did it!  The boot just popped off and the ship's moving 
again!" Gypsy exclaimed.

     "But... but how... why would... I don't get...." a bewildered Joel 
rambled on while Crow and Tom strolled together toward the pantry.

     "Good job, Crow.  We make a good team."  Tom said.

     "Yeah, though your Lugosi WAS a little wheezy... better work on 
that!"  Crow replied laughing as a peeved Tom chased him down the

     "What, will these hands never be clean?!?"  Frank cried as he continued 
to scrub his sore, wrinkled, pink hands in the lab sink.  Meanwhile, Dr. 
Forrester offered a sympathetic smile and pat on the back.  

     "There, there, Frank... you'll get over this soon... you'll have to, cause
I'm sure as hell not paying for therapy."

     "How I can ever face Hot Dog again!?"  Frank sobbed.

     Dr. Forrester rolled his eyes.   "Just do what I do Frank, bury him in 
cheddar cheese and ketchup.  Hmm, speaking of which, Frankie want a 
whistle dog?  Huh, do ya?"

     "Oh boy!"  Frank immediately withdrew his hands from the sink and 
ran in the direction of the kitchen.  "Hey hey, wet hands!  Use a paper 
towel, you slob!"  Dr. Forrester admonished as he snatched a roll before 
chasing after his assistant.

I've been MSTing for over eight years now and I want to thank each
and every person who's send me words of support and encouragement
and who have helped me with my MSTs over the years.  I treasure
every piece of fan mail I receive and I consider it a great honor that
some people have dedicated their MSTings to me and tell me that I
helped encourage them to start MSTing.  To all of you, thank you from
the bottom of my heart and I hope I can continue to inspire and make
you laugh for a long time to come.  :)

I'd like to give personal thanks to Zoogz, who helped me with some
in-depth C&C and suggested riffs for this MSTing....

- Zoogz's 'Mystery Science Cinema' series can be found at including his latest MSTings
'Moon Honey Flash' and 'From Weird to Weirder'.  The editing of the
FFIRC MSTing 'Battle Royale' is also complete and all of these can
be found in the 'Recently Completed Projects' section of 'A MSTing
For All Seasons'.  Since this MST is finished, Zoogz is currently
between projects but should have a new MSTing on the horizon before
too long.

know, I'm back in time in 1947 killing aliens in New Mexico.
