"I Do Quite Like The Thought of a Goatbee": An Interview with Dethbert Jones

26 Nov 2018

 

SERGEANT MEGATRON 5000: TODAY I AM SUPER-THRILLED TO BE JOINED BY DETHBERT JONES.

 

DETHBERT JONES: Thanks Sarge, I am super-thrilled to be here!

 

SERGEANT MEGATRON 5000: ONLY ONE OF US CAN BE SUPER-THRILLED OR THE EMOTIONS WILL CANCEL EACH OTHER OUT.

 

DETHBERT JONES: That's not how emotions work, but okay... I am super-smooshed to be here. Any better? 

 

SERGEANT MEGATRON 5000: SATISFACTORY. MY FIRST QUESTION IS THIS: WHAT CAME FIRST, THE CHICKENSNAIL OR THE EGG?

 

DETHBERT JONES: That's an easy one. My dad created the only chickensnail in the known universe in his lab; so she came first.

 

SERGEANT MEGATRON 5000: IF YOU COULD CREATE THE ULTIMATE HYBRID CREATURE, WHAT PARTS WOULD IT CONTAIN?

 

DETHBERT JONES: Well of course I think my chickensnail Precious is the best possible hybrid, but I do quite like the thought of a goatbee. 

 

SERGEANT MEGATRON 5000: WOULD IT STILL PRODUCE HONEY?

 

DETHBERT JONES: Honey flavoured cheese, perhaps? 

 

SERGEANT MEGATRON 5000: DELIGHTFUL. NEXT QUESTION: OF THE MANY WONDERFUL BADGES AVAILABLE AT SPACE CADETS, WHICH ONE DO YOU CONSIDER THE MOST DIFFICULT TO EARN? 

 

DETHBERT JONES: Definitely 'Cosmic Crowdsurfer'. You have to be performing at a concert AND be so popular that leaping off stage will not result in the audience quickly moving out of your way. 

 

SERGEANT MEGATRON 5000: INDEED. SHOUT OUT TO STOMPY BATES—ONLY FOUR MORE WEEKS UNTIL HIS FULL-BODY CAST IS REMOVED. FINALLY, IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOU, HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DESCRIBED?

 

DETHBERT JONES: Courageous of course. Also strong, handsome, intelligent, witty, talented …   
 
SERGEANT MEGATRON 5000: UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE RUN OUT OF TIME [AND PATIENCE] SO WILL HAVE TO LEAVE IT THERE. THANK YOU FOR JOINING ME.

 

DETHBERT JONES: … friendly, engaging, lovable …  

 

SERGEANT MEGATRON 5000: DON'T FORGET HUMBLE, DETHBERT JONES.

THIS CONCLUDES MY INTERVIEW SUB-ROUTINE. IF YOU WANT TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT LIFEFORMS [AND ROBOTS] ON PLANET CRANK, BUY THE BOOK.
