Continuing the Many Deaths of Eric-R

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Betty-R returns to silo 543, Eric-R no longer with her, to reunite with George-R. 'Did you see the alert The Computer sent out, to launch a nuclear missile at Sector ZQD?', says Betty-R. 'Yes. I tried to launch one', George-R lies, 'but it didn't work. I pressed all the buttons, nothing happened.' 'Did you try […]

Losing His Head in Seeking Revenge

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Eric-R wants revenge. He has just had his left forearm vaporised whilst trying to stop Betty-R from shooting High Programmer Stan-U.
