On the violent and deadly moon of the Hacck-Prose system…

I found this quote while going through old files. I have no idea where it came from originally, except that it must have come from some Warhammer 40K forum, and my clone saved it for me because it’s funny.

It was on the violent and deadly moon of the Hacck-Prose system where the unlucky and unfortunate Guardsman Awefulscribe met his final and permanent fate; to be digested and absorbed by the virulent and potent toxic poisons of the terribly dreadful Tyranid creature known as the Syntactothrope.

That should be a colon, not a semicolon, after “permanent fate.” Just FYI. Otherwise, it’s a fairly good satire of over-the-top and pulpy-melodramatic writing. 🙂

About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.
