    My goodness, look at what I’ve started (a few years ago)! Wouldn’t it be cool if this entire comment section was filled with everybody’s alternate Alley Oop story because we’ve all had enough of what the Bender’s have done to this strip?!!

    To Teresa, NG, Bacon, and whomever wants to argue that laser-headed dinosaurs could defeat the armies of earth.

    I maintain the big lugs wouldn’t stand a chance. We could defend ourselves with mirrors so every time they shoot a laser at us, it bounces back and destroys them.
    We could set huge bear traps for them.
    Dig ditches, cover them up, put steel spikes pointing upward at the bottom.
    These methods would not be eliminated by any type of electronic jamming.
    We could kill them from the ground with tanks and bullets.

    From the air with missiles, bombs.
    Probably find a way to repel them with smell or subsonic sounds.
    It would be no contest.

    I dare any of you to attack me with a herd of dinosaurs! I will defeat them all – just don’t tell nottawasaga.

    To nottawasaga: Regarding: “bio diversity allows humans to live on the planet…. killing the wild beasts is the road to homocide..we have to learn to live WITH not WITHOUT.”

    Okay, you’ve convinced me it would be wrong. Henceforth, whenever I come across a dinosaur I will not kill it.

    Say we lived in a world right now where there were hundreds or even thousands of malevolent wild beasts roaming the streets and eating people and causing great destruction. How long do you think it would take with our current technology to destroy all of them?

    I’m guessing a day?
    We can shoot them from the air.
    We can bomb them.
    Easier yet we can poison them by feeding them cyanide-laced food.
    We can electrocute them. etc.
    If we wanted to wipe out dangerous beasts, even as big as dinosaurs, we could very easily do so. The dinosaurs would not stand a chance against our current technology.

    What do Glarb Tribbles eat? Berries, nuts, corn, flowers, acorns. They can also eat bark and small eggs. They love honey and tree sap!

    Theresa, a while back it was mentioned that even though Tica and Kluco cover their tracks when going from ship to ship, a soft rain caused them to be slightly visible. So despite the fact that there’s a symbol on the ship showing it to have already been looted, the Glarbs got suspicious after seeing the tracks!

    Well I removed the Smothers Brothers and Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean when Alley was fighting Torka in the holodeck. And I changed some of Torka’s dialogue. And I added a little more scenes when Alley is getting chased by the Godzilla fish, but I haven’t given that part to viper yet.

    The mark is still there affixed to the ship. But the tracks in the dirt are pretty suspicious, and brand new. The Glarbs must investigate! And they are going to go through the entire ship looking for whomever could have left them!!

    “That must have been a horrible experience you’ve been through, Mr. Oop.”

    “The worst,” says Alley, “You can call me Alley.  I can’t believe you were on th’ way t’ rescue me?”

    “We were.  We started digging that tunnel before the finals and guessed wrong.  When Gritzel had you fight in the holodeck we had to change directions and guess where you might be.  Again we were wrong, but close enough to find you.”

    “I really appreciate that, everyone.  And for th’ food and everything.  But owe most of my thanks t’ Tribly and his friends.”

    “The Tribbles!  That was amazing that they were digging tunnels for you!  They are highly intelligent. And have secrets I hear. How did you communicate with them?”
    “I’m not sure,” Alley says honestly.
    “They just seemed to know what t’do, and even where I was.  I felt their thoughts in my head.”
    “But how did they tear up that metal coffin like that?” asks Lateedril.

    “They didn’t.  That was me.  I used this.” He holds up his broken collar.
    They are astounded at Alley’s bravery and resourcefulness.
    “That’s absolutely amazing.  You were not the first to be buried alive.  But you’re the first to escape.”
    “There’s been others?”

    “One before you that we know of.  We couldn’t get to him in time.  We think he died of heart failure soon after being buried.  It’s only recently Gritzel started this burying thing because the audience really seems to enjoy it.”

    “Animals!” exclaims Alley.  “I’m going t’ teach that Gritzel and Torka a lesson they’ll never forget! ”
    “We will help you get there.  But allow me to tell our story…”

    “We have much to tell you, as I’m sure you have much to tell us,” Borman starts out.
    “I’ll be happy t’ tell you everything, but can I please have a little food first?”
    “Of course, how thoughtless of us. Why don’t you have a nice meal and bath and then we can talk?!”

    Delicious food is laid out and Alley has a wonderful meal. Afterwards he is ushered to the bathroom and proceeds to take a much needed bath. As he sits soaking himself in the warm water he reflects on his recent horrifying experience of being buried alive.

    “Hah – I got out of that one, Torka, and now I’m coming for you!” he thinks to himself. “No mercy will be shown – I’m gonna flat out kill you and make you suffer!” he thinks with the utmost determination.

    A tiny flit of a thought passes through his head that his adventures were sure a lot easier when the Benders were writing him. Worrying about who is Lola and who is Ooola was a lot easier than escaping from a sealed coffin and clawing his way out of a grave! He will have to settle the score with this insane new author one of these days, but this thought passes by so fast he never really gets a chance to consider it.

    He finishes his bath, puts on new clothes laid out for him, and goes downstairs to join his new friends.
