Moon For Sale

I’ve decided to sell the Moon.

It’s been nice, I’ve enjoyed having it around. It was a great conversation piece when I had people over for tea and crumpets. And on those days when I was moving my couch into the bedroom, and my bed into the other room, it was good to have somewhere to spread out . . . but now that they’re planning to send robot penguins up there I feel it’s time that I moved along.

It will be hard to give up . . . to think of all the times I ran through the Sea Of Tranquility, nekkid as the day I was born, screaming to the mountain tops: AMINI AMONI ADOSHI A-DAISY! I miss screaming that already . . . I scratched the initials of Big Mama and me onto I don’t know how many boulders . . . only the Fizziwumps know how many for certain. The Fizziwumps, and perhaps Eris, but I doubt she cares. I think the fort I made on the dark side is still standing, at least it was the last time I was over there . . . it’s cold, if you plan on buying, stick to the sunny side. In fact, the Carter Family wrote a song about it. Look it up.

So, with some sadness, I feel I must put the Moon up for sale. It is slightly used, it’s certainly not in mint condition anymore; a lot of meteors have crashed into it over the years leaving some fairly impressive craters, in addition to that it was used as a Demolition Derby arena in the early years of the Twentieth Century (before I acquired it) and suffered some pretty intense damage. It was also the site of the Tungsten / Homina war of 1733, but it suffered little damage since the Tungsten’s used marshmallow bullets, and the Hominas just tossed jujubes. In fact, you may still find some stray Jujubes up there.

You can change the name of it, if you want – I call it Curly, but you can call it whatever you want.

Pricing is negotiable. Trades considered.

    I’d be interested in the Moon. A question, though, is it made from green cheese like the stories say?

  2. Baron von Hoopla Says:

    No, that’s just a rumour. It’s actually Limburger.

    But, since there’s no air in outerspace you can hardly smell it.

  3. Moon Man Says:

    I was kind of hoping for a green cheese moon, to be perfectly honest.

    I had this whole image in my mind of carving huge castles out of green cheese, and living in them.

  4. Baron von Hoopla Says:

    Well, you do realize I hope that you could do all that with Limburger too. Green Cheese hasn’t corner the market on carved castles.


  5. Moon Man Says:

    Yeah, but I had my heart set on green cheese.

  6. Baron von Hoopla Says:

    Well, maybe it will get mouldy after a while?

  7. Moon Man Says:

    Could I paint it???

  8. Baron von Hoopla Says:

    Hey man, if you buy it, it’s yours. Go nuts with it. Paint it, carve it, talk to it, take it out for dinner . . . I don’t care.
