The second in an occasional series [find the first here] depicts Amazing Rocket Ship with sibling watching Dad flying a kite on a warm summer Sunday afternoon, somewhere in the Surrey hills.
The Paris Accord was heralded by Amazing Rocket Ship way back in December 2015 [see here]. Now President Trump has put his foot in it, as is his way, and says he is an isolationist when it comes to matters of economics/the actual future of our planet. Therefore, two Amazing Rocket Ships have taken it upon themselves to put the USA into isolation – literally – through sending the entire country [with the exception of California and NY] into a geostationary orbit above the planet Earth where it and its president can do no further harm and reflect on their stupidity. If the USA won’t comply with global emissions then let the USA do its dirty deeds in the vacuum of space. Here on Planet Earth Amazing Rocket Ship seeks to ‘make space for everyone’.
Amazing Rocket Ship introduces a new series : Joyful memories of childhood. These whimsical recollections show Amazing Rocket Ship in a new light, illustrate that once, too, Amazing Rocket Ship had a playful youth, shorn of the burdens of age.
How many of us can connect with this memory? Thank you, Amazing Rocket Ship for sharing. We look forward to further recollections of joyful childhood.
The boffins at the Rocket Ship Foundation have done it again – giving Amazing Rocket Ship a set of feet to make safe manoeuvres on extraterrestrial terrains. Watch this little video of Amazing Rocket Ship’s first baby steps.
[Also known as RS042 in the Complete Catalogue*: 95mmx45mm. Brass, tin and plastic clockwork.]
- What is the Complete Catalogue? The master checklist of every Amazing Rocket Ship built by the Rocket Ship Foundation, the parent organisation. This checklist is kept in secure conditions, being the benchmark by which each Amazing Rocket Ship is verified for posterity.
With President Trump out of the country for a few days, Amazing Rocket Ship and a stealth team from the Rocket Ship Foundation have been busy. A fake White House has been assembled [out of cardboard for lightness] and set up in a secret location.
The plan is as follows: President Trump and entourage arrive home full of themselves; a convoy of pretend limos takes the great and the good to the Fake White House; whereupon Donald, besides himself with pumped up pride at what he has done as a global statesman, enters the portico [ignorant to the fact this is not his usual residence], and into the bowels of Amazing Rocket Ship, cunningly waiting. The rest is simple – a flick of a switch and the Trump is blown into orbit and everyone gets back to doing what they were doing in early 2016.
The Rocket Ship Foundation is offering this ‘make-your-own kit’ to the general public in an effort to raise funds for its new program: sending Amazing Rocket Ship to Mars. You can purchase this wonderful kit for a pittance by contacting your local Amazing Rocket Ship representative.
Technical details: Plywood, wire and cotton thread. Approximate dimensions: 21cmx30cm. Model can be customised/painted to individual taste.
Cunningly disguised as a Frenchman, Amazing Rocket Ship is in Paris soaking up election fever, and ready to do the right and proper thing: vote for Emmanuel Macron.
Note: The Rocket Ship Foundation has not officially endorsed Amazing Rocket Ship’s entry into the affairs of another state, but is hopeful France will do the good and proper thing.
