    The Hawking Meal (in theory it has everything)
     
     
    I'll likely have a flash of genius 5 minutes after I click "post", so I guess I'll post again with better ideas later.

    I, Taco (with crunchy circuit sauce)
    Gremlin Taco (Just add water to make it a 12 pack family meal!)
    Robot Chicken Quesada
     
    I'll have to try to think of more later.

    I....am going to bed. I hashed this out in the shower, and at work, probably subject to change, but here it is for now. All comments welcome.
     
     

    The ballad of 218K -
    Dedicated to those who never gave up, and everyone else besides.
    (Think "The Times they are a Changin" by Bob Dylan, mixed with
    "Scarborough Fair" - the Simon and Garfunkel version) With a dash of the Space Quest 1 theme thrown in for relief. :) 218K is pronounced two-one-eight-K)
    COME! Gather around and I’ll tell you a tale
    Of brave Women and Men who all Pledged to prevail
    Over fantastic odds, and the trolls in their way,
    As they reached the great slowdown of 218K
     
    Space Pope was assembling an army to fear
    Yes the Two Guys would come, but they were not yet near.
    The Andromedan cavalry, riding our way
    In the deafening silence of 218K
     
    But the trolls did besiege our poor garrisoned mound
    Well, the total went up, and the total went down
    Oh they toyed with emotions and got in our way,
    In that terrible struggle of 218K
     
    Yes, we fought and we bickered, we knew it was bleak
    Seemed we wouldn’t reach 500K in two weeks.
    There would be no Space Venture, and nothing to play
    If we just couldn’t win against 218K
     
    But, in that darkest hour, hearts heavy with dread,
    Our adventure games future, it hung by a thread..
    Out of sheer desperation, with no more to say
    We clawed out of the trenches of 218K
     
    Now if we stood a chance, heck, we just couldn’t tell
    With the cone on our side, though it wasn’t, as well?
    Oh the Trends, and the Triangle fought us that day
    As we clashed, worn and weary, with 218K
     
    All adventurers rallied to put out the word
    On the forums, and tweeted (though not like a bird)
    And then, ever so slowly we pulled from the fray
    And we gained some momentum through 218K
     
    So! With 42 bullets and 5 guns apiece,
    The Xenon Special Forces, they led our release
    With the power of Polycheese, and Douglas A,
    Slowly scaled the great mountain of 218K
     
    *tempo slows*
    As we drew near the crest, there was hope in the air
    For we knew it would all be downhill beyond there -
    With one final full-Nelson, pushed over the line...
    …..And we gazed on green pastures of sweet 219
     
    Friends! This story impassioned, is one of renown -
    Tell your children to pass-down our tale to their own,
    Of the Quests that we went through to be here today,
    And to look back in wonder at 218K.
     
    Yes we look back in triumph at 218K.
     
    So. Who’s good with an acoustic guitar? :P
