So close to being my favourite but poor spelling let you down. Harry Mudd's totally awesome but there's a spelling error in one of your answers. I believe you spelt Pirates wrong. For some reason it appears to be spelt Zombies.:eek:

It took me a second there,but then I realized how incredibly subtlety funny that was.

Anyways,it's always nice to meet a new member of the team. :)

It's always nice to know who you are getting to abuse when the content runs dry :p

Only joking, I don't abuse people... I just manipulate them. :eek:

Anyone who wants to be a Tribble is an awesome person in my book. It is nice to meet you, Aaron -- and you definitely have one of the best jobs in the game, in my opinion!
