Tasty Waves

So, like, yeah...there's like these totally unexplored oceans, right? 'Cha.. and I'm, like, thinkin' I could, like, y'know, be the first intergalactic surfer, y'know? Catch me a ride on one of the shuttles, brah, and totally--hold on a sec-- (rasp of a lighter, sound of bong chamber roiling.  Pause.  Exhale.) Where was I?  Oh yeah.  Spaceships.  So like blast off to one of these planets and rip these tasty bomboras with not a single kook in the lineup, right?  Awwwwesome.

Ladies and gentlemen, the set of your next sci-fi novel.
