[color=#000000ost_uid0]Here's today's daily serving of fivers, recommended by four out of five comics we coerced. (Don't ask what happened to number five.)

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Heh, the sleepers-thingies are great! But your URL for part 5 isn't right. Should be http://3sygma.com/fiveminute/features/sleapers5.html[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]And another error: The title of Marill's Top 10 List says that it's "The Top 10 Signs That Your Girlfriend is from an Alternate Universe" instead of "The Top 10 Reasons Why Fifth Voyager is Not For Sane Voyager Fans".

Good fivers all, and nice top 10 list, Marill. Not that it made much sense to me, but I [iost_uid0]think[/iost_uid0] that's a good thing.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]And the forum link to World Domination isn't working.

A nice string of errors today.

Nice fivers all, though slightly weird, as I have no idea about Fifth Voyager, and the fiver for The Alternative Factor sounds more confusing than the episode.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Kira's fiver was great!
[quoteost_uid0]Kira: Aw, how pious of him.
Quark: With a crowbar?
Kira: Maybe it's some sort of religious icon.
Quark: And a book that says "How to Steal an Orb in Ten Easy Steps"?[/quoteost_uid0]


I really got a kick out of "The Alternative Factor", though.
[quoteost_uid0](Nothing happens)
Kirk: What was that?
Spock: Nothing.
Kirk: No, something happened. What was it?
Spock: The something was nothing. Nothing happened.
Kirk: The rest of the episode had better make more sense than it does now.
...
Admiral: (over the comm) Nothing happened everywhere. Find out why.
...
(Nothing happens)
Kirk: Argh! Stop that!
(Nothing gives Kirk the finger)[/quoteost_uid0]
:lol: Also Kirk's question "Why doesn't Anti-Lazarus blow up here?"

Vulpix did a good job too. Two parts in particular:
[quoteost_uid0]
Chakotay: What? How? When? Why? Where? Which?
Vulpix: Crashed, Tom can't fly, 21st century, Tom can't fly, Third Dimension Earth, and how did you know Jessie was a witch?
Jessie: Hey!
...
Emma: I'm Emma. Get me some Cherry Coke NOW!
Harry: I'm doomed.[/quoteost_uid0]


And the banter in the "Sleapers" installment was silly as always.
[quoteost_uid0]Windham: Ahem. I believe that I was making a threat here.
IJD: Sorry -- we got distracted. Where were we?
...
Kira: Oh, be a good sport. You're just mad because I sat in the front row of the auction house.
Zeke: No, I'm mad because you whistled and stamped your feet twice as loud as all those other women did.[/quoteost_uid0]

Nice to have a cameo I can actually recognize. And the Top 10 lists were very funny too.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Can't find the cameo, so how can you recognize it? Or are you talking about Windham? But he was in there yesterday already, right?[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I think he means "Colonel Saxson". Which immediatly reminded me of John Windham. I think I must have SF wired into my brain or something.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]My best guess is SCMoll, but that's mainly because of the 'unit' reference, which is probably going to turn out to be a complete coincidence.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Not SCMoll, I'm pretty sure, but it's not officially a cameo, yet -- just a reference. This is a clue, methinks:
[quoteost_uid0]Now there's a Joan of Arc figure for you![/quoteost_uid0]

And this was clever:
[quoteost_uid0]Zeke: Don't you mean "Resistance"?
Windham: That's not what we call it.
Marc: Mirror universe, Zeke -- get it?
Derek: It's shatteringly obvious that it went right by him.
IJD: Maybe if he'd had a bit more time for reflection he would have caught on.[/quoteost_uid0] :lol:[/colorost_uid0]
