I’ll be honest. If she hadn’t given it to me, I would have stopped reading during the first chapter. The first chapter was just not my cup of tea. I’m glad I didn’t stop, though, because it was all uphill from there. I can’t say it struck me as funny as it struck my friend, but the bits that did strike me funny laid me out. I have now joined Team Space Team, so I won’t miss any adventures. Any space adventures, Beth.
And, yeah, the Space Team are from different planets, and they have translator chips so they can understand one another. But the translator chips won’t translate profanity. So if I ever get mad at you and tell you to go fonk yourself, you’ll have to guess what I mean. Try it now. Go on, guess. <– This is the kind of dialog that runs all through Space Team, and it kills me.
If you visit Hutchison’s web site, not only can you look at a very handsome picture supposedly of the author, you can get three free stories and watch a video of The Adventures of Splurt. Well worth your time.
Beth also suggested I watch this recruitment video for the New Zealand Police Force. What can I say, Beth, but thank you? Nothing else, that’s what. So thank you! That’s some funny shizz, right there. Oh, be sure to stay tuned for the out-takes.
