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 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.

- 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.
Enough is enough, say we here at the Rocket Ship Foundation. Hence, we came up with a dastardly plan to make sure the President had something truly memorable on his 100th day in the Oval Office. Unbeknown to the Secret Service, Amazing Rocket Ship was able to gain access to the Presidential wardrobe (owing to some highly dubious back channelling through diplomatic circles) and those famous red ties.
Amazing Rocket Ship, concealed as a red tie, then exploded at an opportune moment, sending Donald’s head into geo-stationery orbit and thus averting World War III.
Just back from talks with the North Korean administration [see here], Amazing Rocket Ship headed straight for Washington where US President Donald Trump was told: ‘This ain’t show business, Donald. It’s time for you to behave.’
In the spirit of the time.
