Dear Mr. Wonderful,
Could you please outline the details of life as a Space-Fop?
A Space Peon
Dear Frank Poole,
Tut-tut, old thing. I'm no Space-Fop; Mister Wonderful is a Time Dandy.
You can tell the difference because a Space-Fop has only one hump, but a Time Dandy makes Caligula look like a gelded dromedary in a plague nunnery.
Lando Calrissian, he was a Space-Fop. Nice cape, Tubbs. The gas mining business isn't what it used to be, I guess. What the hell kind of charming union boss sucks up to the Dark Lord and betrays his friends in exchange for hollow promises from the Empire? Aside from Tony Blair...
What is it, then, that makes the "TD" lifestyle so undeniably superior and attractive?
We know that one never looks so good as when one takes off the fabric of space-time.
