I wanted to doodle something fun and uplifting - so how about a Cabin Pressure crossover where the bridge crew plays The Travelling Lemon?

They probably have difficulty levels, like “easy” is bridge, “medium” is rec room or mess hall or another public place, “difficult” is medbay while McCoy is working

Lines are from episode 301 of Cabin Pressure - it’s a very funny radio show, I recommend it, especially if you need to pass the time in an airport

…there should be a sequel. Spock’s Revenge

Hello everyone :) I’m thinking of offering these up as prints. If you’re interested in some prints, do lemme know via the ask box. I’ll be scouting around for the best price and quality for poster printing. Rest assured, quality will not be compromised. So gimme a holler if you wish to purchase prints ;)

The Flatwoods Monster

At 7:15 PM on September 12, 1952, two brothers, Edward and Fred May, and their friend Tommy Hyer (ages 13, 12, and 10 respectively) witnessed a bright object cross the sky. The object appeared to come to rest on land belonging to local farmer G. Bailey Fisher.

Upon witnessing the object, the boys went to the home of the May brothers’ mother, Kathleen May, where they reported seeing a UFO crash land in the hills. From there, Mrs. May accompanied by the three boys, local children Neil Nunley (14) and Ronnie Shaver (10), and 17-year-old West Virginia National Guardsman Eugene ‘Gene’ Lemon, traveled to the Fisher farm in an effort to locate whatever it was that the boys had seen.

Lemon’s dog ran ahead out of sight and suddenly began barking, and moments later ran back to the group with its tail between its legs. After traveling about ¼ of a mile (400 m) the group reached the top of a hill, where they reportedly saw a large pulsating “ball of fire” about 50 feet (15 m) to their right. They also detected a pungent mist that made their eyes and noses burn. Lemon then noticed two small lights over to the left of the object, underneath a nearby oak tree and directed his flashlight towards them, revealing the creature, which was reported to have emitted a shrill hissing noise before gliding towards them, changing direction and then heading off towards the red light. At this point the group fled in panic.

Upon returning home Mrs. May contacted local Sheriff Robert Carr, and Mr. A. Lee Stewert, co-owner of the Braxton Democrat, a local newspaper. Stewert conducted a number of interviews and returned to the site with Lemon later that night where he reported that “there was a sickening, burnt, metallic odor still prevailing”. Sheriff Carr and his deputy Burnell Long searched the area separately, but reported finding no trace of the encounter.

Early the next morning; on Saturday September 13, Mr. A Lee Stewart visited the site of the encounter for a second time and discovered two elongated tracks in the mud, as well as traces of a thick black liquid. He immediately reported them as being possible signs of a saucer landing based on the premise that the area had not been subjected to vehicle traffic for at least a year. It was later revealed that the tracks were likely to have been those of a 1942 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by local Max Lockard, who had gone to the site to look for the creature some hours prior to Stewert’s discovery.

After the event, Mr. William and Donna Smith, investigators associated with Civilian Saucer Investigation, LA, obtained a number of accounts from witnesses who claimed to have experienced a similar or related phenomena. These accounts included the story of a mother and her 21 year-old-daughter, who claimed to have encountered a creature with the same appearance and odor a week prior to the September 12 incident; the encounter reportedly affected the daughter so badly that she was confined to Clarksburg Hospital for three weeks. They also gathered a statement from the mother of Eugene Lemon, in which she said that, at the approximate time of the crash, her house had been violently shaken and her radio had cut out for 45 minutes, and a report from the director of the local Board of Education in which he claimed to have seen a flying saucer taking off at 6:30 on the morning of September 13 (the morning after the creature was sighted).

After encountering the creature, several members of the September 12 group reported being overcome with similar symptoms which persisted for some time, which they attributed to having been exposed to the mist emitted by the creature. The symptoms included irritation of the nose and swelling of the throat. Lemon suffered from vomiting and convulsions throughout the night, and had difficulties with his throat for several weeks afterward.

A doctor who treated several of the witnesses is reported to have described their symptoms as being similar to victims of mustard gas, though such symptoms are also commonly found in sufferers of hysteria, which can be brought on by exposure to a traumatic or shocking event.

Cabin Pressure

If you were left scratching your head last December over what all those drawings of pilots were about, or are curious to try this Cabin Pressure show but don’t want to put money down on an unknown quantity, it is your lucky day!  Radio 4 Extra is rerunning Series 3, so you can hear the story behind these images for free:

Qikiqtarjuaq: Polar bears, professionalism, the Travelling Lemon, and a zany British sense of humour

Paris: The Yogi Bear of the Drinks Cupboard vs Just Like Miss Marple

Newcastle: How long will it take for one jet carrying six people to travel from Fitton to Newcastle?

“No, see, Skip? If I balance it just right, we can make it go all the way across GERTI.”

Arthur held the lightweight craft in one hand while he carefully placed the yellow fruit into the neat v-fold.

“This is a TERRIBLE game. I don’t think that’s going to work, Arthur.”
“Yes, Arthur. That’s not quite what I meant by ‘Traveling Lemon…'”

My sister-in-law works exterior security at the airport.

Last week she was passing a flight attendant, who saw her name badge, stopped, and shouted, “YOU! It’s YOUR fault!”

Apparently, my sister-in-law introduced a pilot to Cabin Pressure.

And he’s started playing The Traveling Lemon.

The International Travelling Lemon Game

So fandot… I have an idea. 

As you may have already guessed, this idea involves a lemon. 

Well, a picture of a lemon. It might get messy if we tried it with an actual lemon, unfortunately. International post will do that to unprotected fruit.

It boils down to this:

I get a card printed with a lemon on the front of it. I will include instructions in the card, and I will write my (approximate) location on it - I will not include my name or details of my address - just the country and maybe the area (county, state, city, etc.).

I will then post the card to someone else. This person adds their own location - again, no name and no specifics, you can be as vague as you like. (You can also add a personal message if you want, but it’s not a requirement!)

This person may, if they wish, take photographs and post them on here (or to the Facebook group or Twitter profile I may make if this goes ahead) so we can all see the lemon’s progress.

The person now posts the lemon on to someone else, who writes down their location…

You get the picture. 

If you received the card but had no one to send it on to, I would hopefully be able to act as mediator to match you up with someone else willing to pass on their address. No one will be pressured into giving away any details they do not wish to, to anyone, including me.

I think it would be amazing to see how far we could get it, just by posting it to fellow fans around the world.

At the moment I’m just trying to gauge interest to see if it’s worth trying; this is still very much in the draft stages… so who’s with me? Please like/reblog this post/send me a message to let me know!

Feel free to ask me any questions, if you have them - my inbox is always open.
