GANKER Missile


Dear Mr. Mayor,

How are you? You look fantastic! Are those new boots?

My employers would like to, once again, express how utterly thrilled they are at having established a facility here in your charming city. Yes, indeed, thrilled is the very word. Thrilled, thrilled and thrilled some more!

And, with regard to our researchers’ most recent unfortunate miscalculation…
yeah, we’ll pay for that.

Most sincerely,
Mr. Buckminster Solo
Facilities Manager
SIMCo/Shockley Biologics Institute

Spread the love

    Bloody ‘ell!

    There must be a bomb-attracting magnet in the sewers under Jefferson Way cause that’s not the first time such a thing happens…

    I can’t see any corpse at least. Unless they’ve already been taken next door…

    Where is this SIMCo facility located, so I can avoid the area?

      The Shockley Biologics Institute is across from Brunel Hall on the southwest corner of Academy and Savory. In general we do not grant admittance to non-employees, however we do on occasion find human guinea pigs invite volunteer test subjects to participate in one or two entirely harmless experiments. Do keep an eye out for our notices. (And if your eyes are in fact removable, please let us know. They might be suitable for some experiments already in progress.)

        Oooooh! Is that a paid job to volunteer as a test subject?

        • Buckminster Solo Buckminster Solo May 14, 2013

          It is company policy to offer a modest compensatory payment to all of our test subjects.
          If they live.

    *Brushes the glass and fragments of cobblestone from his desk.*

    “Oh for heaven’s … It’s bad enough having the windows broken from the inside!!”

    *Begins drafting a sharply worded letter, attaching an estimated bill of repair.*

      “And there’s a flask here in two pieces. Granted it may have been in two pieces already, for all I know.”

    Rather unusual way of sending in free samples.

    When I saw this image I wondered why it seemed so familiar.

    Then it hit me, I’d seen a picture of a crashed mail delivery rocket from the 1930s that strongly reminded me of this.  (Yes, kids.  At one point someone thought that semi-ballistic delivery of mail was a Good Idea.  And, yes, of course the person who had this bright idea was German.  And no, it wasn’t Werner von Braun.)
