Tuesday 30th sees a multiplayer Zombie 7TV game, Dreadball action, X-wing action and of course 40K.
Damn that petrol gauge…
Australia had seemingly escaped the Zombie virus that was raging through the rest of the world. As soon as there had been a hint of trouble the Govt. had locked up the borders, the few infected individuals had been literally fed to the fish (of the rather large, pointy teeth variety) off Botany Bay and everyone went back to the barbies and stubbies (or glass of red for the Shielas). Now this seemed in theory a pretty decent idea, shame theories are just that; theories.
The Great White who had gobbled all three bodies up without it barely registering was now beginning to wonder if he’d eaten something that didn’t agree with him. As one can imagine this was a shock to him as the V8 ute engine he’d ingested only last week came up nearly intact and was only a minor inconvenience. But something was definitely amiss, stomach bubbling and what passed as a brain seemingly exploding the shark thrashed, dazed and confused, even for a shark. Suddenly he sped up, his olfactory organs kicked in to override anything else which was going on… Sliding through the growing swell his target came into view. At least, he thought, the booger (body boarder) might make him feel better.
It had taken three surfers to drag the body boarder out the water, minus the bottom of both legs which were, if you are interested, not making our Great White friend feel any better. Paramedics had stabilized his legs but the trauma was too great. They pronounced him dead on the way to Sydney Hospital… The orderlies who opened the ambulance doors got a bit of a shock, and then a bite!
That had been three weeks ago now and apparently the outbreak had been quashed yet again. But Bruce and his mates were not taking it for granted. Loading up the combi with people they headed for his mates ‘plantation’ up in the bush. Pity the petrol gauge was dodgy…
So there we have it, a group of slightly worse for wear escapees stuck on the highway 400m from a closed up petrol station. No brainer really, grab some fuel in a can and bring it back so they could carry on… What could possibly go wrong?
Come and join in the pre- halloween 7TV game!
