I'm taking a vacation. 
From acknowledging your existence.

Thanks, Tria!

Seems most logical under the circumstances ;-)

Tribble is about to watch his favourite Bun Trek episode : The Trouble With Hoomins... !

Of course, Tribble knows all about the trouble with hoomins, but he still likes to watch the show!

Maybe Tribble is vacationing, but I'll bet he left one of those gadgets - probably an extra large one - that is filled with disapproval and then dispenses a healthy dose at random moments during the day! Probably has the "Keep Full" option from the delivery bunn too!

Love all the comments! I'm so excited Tribble made it onto the blog! The caption is perfect!

And yes she definitely knows all about "The Trouble With Hoomins"

What a fine, shiny little bunny.

I hope you are not wearing red, Ensign Tribble's Mummy.

janet2buns said...

Good one, brandi! Ensign Red Shirt would never make it back to the BunTerprise.

Fleetie said...

I'm just wondering what the "funny-eared" one looks like in "Bun Trek". Any ideas?

Bea Dazzler said...

@ Brandi, LOL, I NEVER wear red!!!
@ Sallyneary Thanks for noticing!
@ Fleetie, a very good question...
@ Rabbits Guy, Watch where you step, Tribble has hidden disapproval gadgets all around!

i would like to see Star Trek TOS acted out by Bunnies!!
Such a great day Seeing my Star Trek bun here!

I have an episode idea for "Bun Trek":

An exploratory probe of a dozen or so buns sets out from The BunTerprise, to map a newly-discovered, distant star system.

After dropping out of warp and checking a few of the outer gas giants, they arrive near a blue planet that sets their ears and noses twitching. The planet is mostly covered by water, and appears to be leaking a cacophony of radio signals.

Unfortunately, the wet planet's relatively strong magnetic field, and the very high level of radio noise coming from it, play havoc with their probe's nagivational systems, and they lose control, and are dragged down into the planet's atmosphere.

They manage to make a crash landing with all crew intact. On emerging and exploring on the land mass where they set down, they soon discover that the world is populated with many alien life forms. Dominant among these is a species of slow, lumbering, bipedal giants, of disappointingly low intelligence. These warlike primitives offered little hope for the buns' long-term survival here.

The bun crew decide the only safe option is to set up residence underground. Burrowing into the earth, they set up a colony out of sight of the ogre-like, and remarkably stoopid giants above.

Time passes. Much time. A lot of time. No, really, a seriously big wedge of time. The bun crew, once settled, begin to establish themselves, and build families.

Unfortunately, the planet's magnetic field and radio noise mean that their erstwhile crewmates and their successors on the BunTerprise and their colleagues in the United Federation of Rabbits continue to be unable to locate them within the mysterious star system where they were last heard from.

More time passes. In fact, time on the buns' new home planet passes much faster than in the rest of the universe. Weeks on the BunTerprise are equivalent to decades on the missing buns' new "home" planet. Generations of the crew's families come and go, and the bunnies spread scross the planet, still living mainly underground, while the Federation continues to search for them

To Be Continued...

What about the Hares, what about the Pikas???
The suspense is killing me, Fleetie. We all know that no good can come from cohabiting a planet with stinky bipedal hairless primates!!!
The apes are so big, and the bunnies are so small...

sharmalee said...

Too bad they Scotty Bun can not beam humans off the planet!

Looking forward to the next saga Fleetie!

Bea Dazzler said...

LOL I Love it!!!
:)

Auntie Jane (It is official!) said...

The suspense and the laughing are killing me.

Fleetie said...

Erm, I really only wrote "To Be Continued..." for humorous effect! I didn't intend to actually write another one.

Maybe someone else should write the end part!

brandi said...

Come on, Fleetie. Didn't anyone tell you finish what you start?

janet2buns said...

Oh Fleetie! I am weak with laughter! I realized slowly, (oh so paaaaainfully slowly)onto which planet the BunTerprise crash landed. It just proves how stoopid I am!

janet2buns said...

And Fleetie, do you read Terry Pratchett? Your Bun Trek suggestion sounds hilariously like something he would write.

Fleetie said...

By the way, I just want to say that Tribble has lovely eyes, and a lovely cute white nosie!
