The Time Tamperer (part 41)


Meanwhile Piggies had led Mincey on a whistle-stop tour of his temporal edifice; but eventually he paused in a bright shiny place that reminded Mincey of a urine-infused splash pool…

There, he decided to tell Mincey the tale of how he had successfully depopulated the museum. “It was great fun.” He said. “There I was – standing in my newly acquired curator’s penthouse – looking out of the frosted glass lavatory window…

…when I decided to step out on to the balcony…

…and send for my right-hand RoboSecGua – best-known as EvilRoboSecGua…

It, in turn, summoned more operatives of the security force to my, admittedly vast balcony…

Who – yes you guessed it – summoned the rest…

So once every servomechanism was in place, I explained to them what I had done – being the brilliant severance of this era from all other periods in time. Naturally they made the only logical decision open to them: they pledged fealty to me.”

“Flipping heck!” Mincey exclaimed…

“Did you hear that, Heathrow? All the RoboSecGuas sided with Piggies DuPong!”

Heathrow wasn’t particularly worldly-wise; but even a plugmutt could see that the situation wasn’t the best it could possibly be. “Golly.” He responded.

But he said no more because Piggies continued his tale: “I contacted my namesake – an exotic restaurateur named Mister Pong…

…and threatened to have his noodle bar closed down if he didn’t act as my spokesplug to all of the most important people in the museum.”

“Hey,” Mister Pong began reading from a small note that I had handed to him, “Piggies DuPong’s got a message for all you guys and guy-esses. And I’m gonna read it to ya.”
