So what would they be?
The fifth day, of course, would be, “Fiiiiiiiive… braaaass… coooooogs!”
But what about the other days? How many scientists plotting? How many engineers bashing? And what replaces the partridge in the pear tree?
Let’s have some fun!
So should the First day be “A Burnt Caledonian Tree”?
Actually I think I got a better one “Avariel’s sad little Useless Tree”
Four urchins singing?
wouldn’t that be 4 urchins stealing?
No that’s the job of the other urchins who aren’t singing… I mean…
four urchins singing…. an another four using the distraction ter pick pockets….
It should really be six urchins singing because it makes the song sound weird at four, but then you can have seven scamps a stealin ;3
While I’m not the most musically talented individual……
On the twelth day of Christmas, what in Babbage did I see?
9 Cats prowling.
6 Urchins singing
5 Crowded Baaaars!
4 Evil Schemes
3 Steam Cars
And one very sad useless treeee!
The Useless Tree is not sad anymore… Steam Santa fixed it!
12th Day: “Twelve hotel rebuildings”
11th Day: “Eleven zombies shambling”
10th Day: “Ten urchins running”
9th Day: “Nine fruitcakes soaking”
8th Day: “Eight drunkards fighting”
7th Day: “Seven kraken flying”
6th Day: “Six trolleys stalking”
5th Day: “Five weird machines”
4th Day: “Four broken spanners”
3rd Day: “Three new alts”
2nd Day: “Two wiggyfish”
1st Day: “A clockwinder giving The Stare”
Yay for The Stare!
A few of the others’ ideas plus some of my own yields:
On the 12th day of Christmas, in Babbage did I see…
Twelve builds exploding
Eleven angry kraken
Ten pirates smuggling
Nine drunkards fighting
Eight crates of absinthe
Six vicious trolleys
Fiiiiiive… goggles… braaaaaass!
Four insane inventions
Three tourists eaten
and A deadly mechanical tree
I suppose the drunkards wouldn’t be fighting if there were nine crates of absinthe. And yet, the wiggyfish were happy to go halfsies on a tourist. Humans can learn so much from nature.
Fun! Here are a few more:
Wonderful idea! Do you see what I see?
Twelve barrels rolling
Eleven pipers fitting
Ten Time Lords linking
Nine Ladies Dancing
Eight Mermaids swimming
Seven trolleys steaming
Six urchins playing
Five brass rings
Four clockwork birds
Three Steelhead Hens
and a Raven in a Gear Tree!
Bravo Mr. Jack :)
That Raven in a Gear Tree fits just right Sir !!!
so everyone but arnold agrees on wiggyfish?
No, I change my vote to Wiggy-fish as well. heh.
