Though his consciousness was fading, Rasta Rick heard a vaguely familiar voice.
“Rick, you have to get up. The world needs you, now more than ever.”
Eyes shut, Rasta Rick replied weakly.
“Ah can’t dew it, mon… Da’s no hope in me bones.”
“THEN LOOK AT ME AND SAY THAT, RASTA RICK.”
Rasta Rick’s eyes opened. Standing over him, hand extended, was none other than Asia Bones, the legendary skeleton martial artist.
He grabbed the old master’s hand.
“How are you still alive?” he asked, as the karate-kicking skelly pulled him to his feet.
“I’m a skeleton.”
“WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’RE DOING, ASIA BONES?!” roared King Skeleton, “YOU ARE MY SERVANT. ALL SKELETONS ARE MY SERVANTS.”
“No, King Skeleton,” replied Asia Bones coolly, “I am a free skeleton. The only true loyalty of a skeleton is to what is spooky. And from here, you don’t look very spooky to me.”
King Skeleton tore his crown off his head, and it transformed into a throwing star, which he launched at Asia Bones.
But they were deflected!
Not by Asia Bones, who obviously could have done it easily because nobody can deflect throwing stars like him,
but by Rasta Rick!
“Ay mon, you right. As long as der’s a smokey breath in mah body, der is ALWAHYS HOPE.”
He drew his blunt broadsword and crushed a skeleton guard.
Asia Bones did a double front-flip and 1-handed clotheslined 2 skeletons at once.
“Sire, they’re kicking out asses!” cried a skeleton guard.
“Yes, yes, I can see that you pussies,” spat King Skeleton, “You all stay here and die, I’m going to take Raymond and retreat on to Planet Bones!”
“NOT PLANET BONES!” exclaimed Asia Bones.
But it was too late. King Skeleton had grabbed Raymond’s unconscious body and escaped in a pod that was used for escape.
“What be on Planet Bones?” asked Rasta Rick, as he bludgeoned another group of skellies with his weed weapon.
“It… it’s the HOME PLANET OF THE SKELETONS. THEY’R GOING TO SACRIFICE RAYMOND TO THE SPOOK GODS.”
“SHAKAKAKAKAKAKAKAA!” screeched a skelly as Rasta Rick smashed his hip bone with his boot.
“Ah no, mon. It be sum baaaad juju comin’ from derrr. We need ta regroup wit dah space m’rines, it’s dah only way.”
Asia Bones snapped another skeleton guard’s neck.
“Agreed. We’ll pick up your men, and launch an attack on Planet Bones.”
