Po is hungry. He is getting some Tubby Custard. But he forget to turn on the centrifuge! Silly Po. Now custard is floating all over the galley!
There are so many things to learn when you move into a space station. Why did the Teletubbies have to move here?
NASA astronauts wear big bulky suits and their agency is broke. BBC children's characters wear big bulky suits and pay anything for publicity. So, NASA changed their spacesuits to look like children's characters. That was easy!
Do you know what this is called?
Tinky Winky? No?
This is called "Marketing Synergy".
Uh-oh! What's that bloopy farty alarm noise? Why, it's the Space Shuttle SuBo, docking at the station. I wonder who's visiting? Look, it's Wenlock and Mandeville! Wenlock has one giant eye! His head is a stadium roof! He's technically naked! Mandeville is no improvement! They make the Boobah's look normal!
Who the fuck are Wenlock and Mandeville?
They're the mascots for the 2012 Olympics in London!
But you didn't know who they were. And it's already 2011.
Do you remember our talk about Marketing Synergy?
Wenlock is making a spacewalk. Wenlock is actually a highly trained technician. Wenlock doesn't seem too happy repairing an American proton beam missile defense satellite while wearing a costume with no fingers. But this photo op is like Tubby Custard and Tubby Toast for the wealthy Olympics PR trogs. It's win-win!
