‘Let air keep you bare’ – gravityless crockery at it’s best

Atarian

 

‘Oops’

Captain Har grabbed at the rising berrysmoothie but it broke into balls heading towards the Ambassador. Ambassador Zawrl twitched, never a good sign in an Atarian. Feck gravityless crockery, Har thought, as he shouted, ‘Pucker up and suck the fruit.’

Historians claim that the subsequent mistranslation was the cause of the Atarian Cold War.
