The Truth about Goats

300 and up! (Thank you to our readers)

As ‘Flibbertigibbet’ celebrates its 300th story, we would like to say a big thank you to all our readers who have supported the site over the last ten months. By coincidence Wrenfoe has just received a belated award as Newsbiscuit’s ‘Writer of the Month – August 2013’ for the story which is also the title of our 2013 annual (- and can be purchased via Kindle).




For those of you who missed the story first time around, here it is….

Although the official outcome of Zimbabwe’s elections is still to be announced, Mr. Mugabe has confidently predicted he will become the next Time Lord. Bookies and the Electoral Commission have expressed “surprise” given that the iconic sci-fi role was not on any ballot paper. However a Zanu-PF spokesmen said: “No one has done more to turn back time and change history than our glorious President”.

The months of intense speculation as to who will be replacing Matt Smith will be over once Mr. Mugabe is unveiled “live” on BBC1 this Sunday night. In the last fortnight other front runners had been ruled out; Edward Snowden because of travel commitments, Nelson Mandela due to health issues and James Corden due to abusing human rights. While some observers characterized such early casting as “seriously compromised”, the 89 year old was quick to point out his long standing record against “those white cybermen”.

Olusegun Obasanjo, Head of the African Union observers, declared the election “free, honest and credible” or at least in comparison to most BBC commissioned programmes. Steven Moffat, executive producer, confirmed that he was in no way intimidated by the presence of a dozen masked and armed strangers camped in his garden for the last month. A BBC spokesman promised that the half hour special will include “the TARDIS, plus dictators old and new”.

Mr. Mugabe’s first act as the new Doctor will be to travel back in time to 1994 when he was still the hero of the Rhodesian Bush War, a Knight Grand Cross and the recipiant of honorary degrees and ironic doctorates. Ably assisted by the glamorous PM Morgan Tsvangirai, a toothless UN and a sonic screwdriver, he hopes to fast-track a land reform program to correct the inequitable galaxy distribution created by the Daleks.

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
