HNT - Spud Wars: When Darth Comes Knocking

This blog post is a serialized story continued from HNT- Spud Wars: Return of the Spud-Eye

Finally fully cloned (thanks to advice from Mister Bunny and some genetic material) and ready to stage his revenge attack against Mark, Darth Tater and his new army marched for days and days.

During the march, one of the clones started singing "The Spuds Went Marching One By One" but he was immediately dealt with as a trouble-maker, and sold off to the first chip truck they passed. Darth lectured his clones as well, explaining that he didn't want any BS from them.

"I've had enough of these BSoholic antics," Darth said.

"What?" One of the clones said. "What's a BSoholic?"

"I'm not sure," Darth said. "It's a name that just occured to me. Perhaps it refers to one who can't get enough BS or loves to deal in BS."

"What's BS?"

"Well for one, this whole goofy storyline," Darth said. "But that's beside the point.  Can we just move on through this unnecessary 'bridge' episode of this story. Simply, I don't want any wise guys in my clone army, and I really just want to get through this episode, because it isn't until NEXT episode that I get my revenge."

When Darth and his army finally arrived at Mark's door he made all the clones hide out of sight and he approached the door.

"Knock, Knock!" he said, because his little spud arms couldn't really reach the door.

Mark came to the door, peeked out, and not being able to see who was knocking said: "Who's there?"

"Al!" Darth replied.

"Al, who?"

"Al be getting my revenge as soon as you open the door!" Darth chortled.

"W-what did you j-just say?" Mark said, a little nervous.

"Er," Darth realized his mistake immediately. He couldn't get revenge until the door was opened. "I mean: 'Avon calling'"

"Ooooh, Avon! It's has been ages since seen an Avon lady at my door. And I just love the Avon skin moisturizer. It makes my skin so very soft and supple."

And Mark proceeded to open the door . . .

To be continued . . . in Darth's Revenge (Part 1)

Now that this un-necessary "bridge" episode has ended, will Darth finally get the revenge he has wanted? What's with the boring pictures that accompany this story anyway? Did Mark just run out of steam or something? That's pretty lame, particularly since this is just a re-run of a post from several years back - all he had to do was copy and paste most of it. Are the simple pictures a way of just "cheaping out" on the special effects (ie, actually seeing the clone army)? Will there be any "special effects" in the next episode, or will the storyline cheat us of that fun too? And what's with Mark's obsession with Avon? Get the answers to very few of these questions in next week's continuing story of . . .
