If this is the way that they treat my fragile package, I'll just stick with the federal post.

Explains why my packages from Ceti Alpha V show up like they do...

...and then one of them crashes on a remote uncharted tropical planet with nothing but a few packages and a volleyball... and, uh, you know the rest.

Wow, the commercialization of sport and the sport-ification of war wrapped around an American pop-cultural icon... inside in a student project from France.

I am curious how the "American Style Football" reads from the perspective of the "soccer playing World." Is it a metaphor for "Imperial American Power" or does it add a sense of buffoonery to the aggressiveness of the action, or something else?
Or both.

I suppose the choice of the two most intimately global of all American corporations just happens to serve the plot.
(Hey! A global industry America dominates - package delivery!)

Orrr... they could be playing rugby or just Keep-away.

But more importantly, a more-than-clever idea successfully realized.

A great team of artists.

Awesome. Pure awesome. Just one question: why did Brown replace their workforce with genetically engineered eagles with unibrows? Humans couldn't withstand the exposure from those shorts in a zero-g environment?
