Prometheus in Fifteen Minutes.

I would put up a sample quote, but with this movie... I'm not sure I can.

If you haven't seen the movie and want to, feel free to save the Fifteen Minutes for later. It'll keep. I'd rather people say they waited to read it than "Now I don't have to see the movie at all!" It's always a smidge funnier when you realize how little I was making up. On the other hand, it ought to be comprehensible if you don't.

(Yeah, the "alien language" line is actually a simple letter replacement; it can, in theory, be translated. If no one can, well--you get someone to officially reveal what David said in the movie which will never happen, and we'll talk. Seriously, I want to know.)

(On the other hand, do you want to know? Is there any translation that would possibly satisfy you? Seriously, it's not that great.)

I don't mind saying I'm working on something for The Avengers (have been struggling with it for more than two weeks, now, actually, since I saw it a second time), because there's too much of it done to give up anyway. It doesn't have the wonderful footholds of absurdity that Prometheus does, so it's harder.

Also, people seem to be having trouble getting LJ to work. I didn't do it.

Haven't read it yet, but just wanted to say thanks for writing it/sharing it with us. :) I know these aren't always easy to write, and I really enjoy reading them. They always bring a smile to my face and chuckles abound when they show up. Thanks again!

Thanks. I think they've gotten harder because I have these self-imposed lists of "jokes that are too easy, do not use them," "phrases/gags you've worn into the ground," "words that are lazy." On one hand, I think that's made them better, but on the other, it means you actually have to think of something else.
