# 1 Thompson Tribble - Pet me now
03-17-2010, 01:23 PM
Ok.

The other day I saw one of the wiki articles floating around about Tribble Breeding. I got to thinking that would be kinda cool to do as a side task while playing the game, so I picked up a level 1 tribble from the Exchange (because I'd replicated all the ones I've found as drops). I don't have much of anything in the bank, so I put the tribble in there with some food and left it for 24 hours.

I came back - and viola! A level 2 tribble! In this particular case - a Thompson.

Now - I have a rather active imagination, and as a musician I have weird things pop into my head all the time when I see or hear things throughout the day from a music perspective. The very first thing that popped into my head when I saw it was a Thompson was that old '80's song by the Thompson Twins - Hold me now.

Well... I just couldn't get it out of my head. Like - all night. Then this morning I started joking about making a parody about tribbles... and rambled off a few lyric jokes to my friend... which got me rolling.

And here it is. It's a parody all about tribbles in STO, sung to and replacing the lyrics of the Thompson Twins - Hold me now.

(For those of you not familiar with tribble names, you can find the names of the tribble breeds here on this chart - http://img641.imageshack.us/img641/9...rchyanidea.jpg)

Thompson Tribbles - Pet me now

I have a tribble
I keep to myself
I hold it and feed it and pet it whenever
I've lost me some health

It's always here with me
In my pocket it's stored
It purrs and it stirs and it shakes and it makes me
feel like I'm adored

[chorus - sung by tribble]
Oh, pet me now
Oh, let healing start
Don't sell me!
Let my purr soothe your heart
Let all Klingons depart

I only have one now
I wish I had two
I've seen other's who've made a small fortune by selling
Zincs, Daxters and Yus

So perhaps I should breed it!
Yea, I'll breed me some more!
I'll take all the young and I'll sell them all inside
the Sol Exchange store

[chorus - sung by tribble]
Oh, pet me now
Oh, let buffing start
Don't sell me!
Take my buffs to impart
Wipe Klingons off the charts

Oh, pet me now
Oh, let regen start
Don't sell me!
Let your arm grow it's part
Like a piece of fine art

[bridge]

Now I'm on an away team
My Ricossa in hand
I left all the rest in my stateroom back on
the U.S.S. Portland

Oh no, look at that Redshirt!
He's all tattered and torn!
Well, if he'd taken the Nielson I'd offered we wouldn't
be having to mourn

[outro chorus - sung by tribble]
Oh, pet me now----(I'm really not a two bit part)
Oh, let healing start----(let me help you play your part)
Don't sell me!----(ooh don't sell me!)
Let my purr soothe your heart
Let all Klingons depart

Oh, pet me now----(I'm really not a two bit part)
Oh, let buffing start----(let me help you play your part)
Don't sell me!----(ooh don't sell me!)
Take my buffs to impart
Wipe Klingons off the charts

Oh, pet me now----(I'm really not a two bit part)
Oh, let regen start----(let me help you play your part)
Don't sell me!----(ooh don't sell me!)
Let your arm grow it's part
Like a piece of fine art

Sadly, I think there will be a multitude of wooshing sounds as this reference passes over the heads of anyone younger than 35 (atleast). lol

You should seriously consider making this into a music video. Internet fame would be yours! lol

Actually - I was thinking of that. I've got the equipment to do it... would be a fun project.

Not directly related but that reminded me of this;
I like big bots and I can not lie
You other pilots can't deny
That when a mecha walks in shakin’ up the whole place
Sportin missiles and guns all ova’ the space
You get in thick, wanna pull out your joystick
'Cause you noticed that bot was stuffed
Deep in the plating she's wearing
I'm hooked and I can't stop staring
Oh baby, I wanna get in ya
And take my picture with ya
My homeboys tried to warn me
But that bot you got makes me so horny
Ooh, Shiny-o'-painted-skin
You say you wanna get a tail spin?
Well, use me, use me
'Cause you ain't that average Robby
I've seen them fightin'
To hell with dancin'
She's hot, fast,
Got it goin' like a Vee Dash!
I'm tired of magazines
Sayin' little bots are the thing
Take the average pilot for a run
She gotta pack much gun
So, fellas! (Yeah!) Fellas! (Yeah!)
Has your Bot got the Guns? (Hell yeah!)
Tell 'em to Blast it! (Blast it!) Rock it! (Rock it!)
Take that heavy bot!
Baby got Bot!
Yea I take the blame/credit for this version ^_^

I feel like the tribble should have an Alvin and the Chipmunks voice. At least, that's how I sung it when I sung it to mah sista.
