Blast Off!

Satirical Snapshots Bringing You Whimsy On A Wednesday!

Sometimes, whimsy has been known to get the better of me. 

A fanciful notion took hold of me the other day: Wouldn’t it be nice to do something wildly different? Instead of getting up, donning my usual attire and starting up my old motor to go traipsing around the usual places, wouldn’t it be fun to go on a cosmic adventure!

Imagine getting trussed up in your space suit, saying cheerio to the dogs, bouncing outside to fire up your rocket and blasting off on a little junket to our solar system. 

Who wouldn’t want to do that?

Well, since we haven’t yet moved from Tesla’s to rockets you’re not going to find a rocket on your driveway. However, that doesn’t stop us from going on a trip. Oh no. 

Just for all you kids out there, I’ve made a rhyming story and video of a trip around the solar system. So, if you’re one of those people that have put your name down to live on Mars, you might want to watch this. Whilst it’s made for children a few of you adults might just learn a thing or two!

Please feel free to share my video with any parents who think their kids might enjoy my story – Blast Off!

NB: Before any bright spark asks me where Pluto is, know that Pluto got downgraded from a planet to a dwarf planet (the Death Star)

Fabulous!! Well I’ve learned a few things about our solar system now and told in a most entertaining way!

Thank you 🙂

Brilliant 🤩
Enjoyed the entertaining info
Your clever jules xx

Thank you, Jenni my lovely. XOXOXO

I think Pluto was downgraded to a dwarf planet, not a star.

You are of course right, Bathwater. Thank you for that. I’ve corrected that part for you.
However, everyone secretly knows that Puto is really the Death Star

Well done, Jules!

Thank you 🙂

William Shatner did this this morning. but imagine if Spock had done it…


Spock would have been brilliant, my sweet *)

Totally charming, Jules. Just lovely!

Thank you, Ginny! 🙂

I thoroughly enjoyed that. Good job!

Thanks, Darren. Glad to be of service!

Whimsical indeed.
Was it purely by chance, that you chose to post this on the same day that William Fatner boldly went where many others have gone before?

Believe it or not, that was a fortuitous fluke! Talk about perfect timing.

Captain Kirk’s looking good for 90, isn’t he?! Don’t you think it would have been good if his speech upon landing had been turned into a “Captain’s Log”?

Can’t believe they didn’t think of that.

Absolutely brilliant Julesy! You never cease to amaze me with your talents.
Next time you go, I would love to ride along with you.
I’m wondering about that place called Earth: Has there been any signs of intelligent life there?
Love Ya Bunches,

Aww, you’re so lovely then, PPS!

Apparently, no signs of intelligent life whatsoever. I think the Death Star is getting ready to obliterate us!

Love ya bunches more!

“And why it is known as the blue planet too”? You KNOW why it’s called the Blue planet. Because a little creature called Blue resides there. No?

Hello Jules! How has this shitty world been treating you?

See! Yes! Obviously it’s because you are there and that’s what makes it so much better!

Well, ya know, nothing to shout home about. It’s all a bit bonkers, innit.
