Used hvorboard for sale – cheep! (Moonbase 3)


ur bidding on a grate hoverbroad. Can go 2x lightspeed if you give it a good push. Only minor burns.

Well, aside from the spelling, this sounds like a great deal. “Only minor burns,” huh? I’m not surprised there’s no hologram on this one – it’s probably completely carbonized.

Also, “Only Minor Burns” would probably be IF’s Quiet Riot cover band, if he still had any hearing left.

    Hvorboard is a little known Swedish manufacturer of warp drives. Certain product lines are known for quality problems, which is why “only minor burns” is a selling point.

    I wonder if Sparky will ship the hvorboard to earth? Postage is cheaper than a plane ticket to Moonbase 3.

    Although initially thrilled to discover her superpower, Grate Hoverbroad soon found that the ability to float over heating ducts had limited crime-fighting applications.

      It’s all the Wonderbra’s fault. It lives up to its name, but the resulting powers can be unpredictable.

        Still a vast improvement over the previous model, Wonderbread.

    I don’t want anything to do with a grate hoverbroad; helicopter parents can be extremely annoying

    Not sure as I’d want to go to Moonbase 3 to pick this thing up. From what I hear, that’s not exactly a low-crime area. If he’d be willing to deliver to my home at Moonbase 5, now we’re talking.

    “ur bidding on a grate hoverbroad.”

    Should there be a “Not.On.Ebay” tag for this kind of stuff?

    Well, if the band’s on Moonbase 3, they have to be a Disaster Area cover band.

    Only Minor Burns would have to be an Oasis cover band.
    Only Major Burns being the Korean a capella Bagpipe band.

    Now, it could be that Spark is using only a 2033 edition mumble-to-text app on his iFingernail, so that line might have been supposed to read “Only miner bairns” meaning this would be a kid collier’s model hvarbørd–only 4 stone allow’t.
