Three Hoodies Save The world
After David's mum "buys" him a star from one of those magazines that sell Xray specs and has photos of what happened after your twentieth face lift, he and two friends find themselves on a planet peopled by sleeping adults and children who just might not be children at all. Other than being bombarded by smelly missiles from a nearby prison planet, they think they've found the ideal place, until they are told they have one week to save that planet and the Earth from avenging mutant prisoners.
It was just a dream, right? So they decide to have some fun. Until it turns out that it isn't a dream and the fun ends quite abruptly when they discover that one of the mutant's is chasing them. And he isn't in a good mood.
But David was too late.
A fraction of a second later, the gentle hum of powerful engines was overshadowed by the great gout of orange flame as something detached itself from the top of the craft which jerked sideways at its departure. Shooting off with incredible speed into the distance, the rocket as it obviously had to be, quickly became invisible except for the thin plume of black smoke it left behind. But then about five seconds later it struck a large grey building about two miles away in the hazy morning light with an incredibly bright flash, followed several seconds later by a great boom which easily penetrated the armoured glass.
Before them, the top of the enormous structure disappeared in the enormously bright blast. Then, almost with majestic slowness the entire construction, perhaps, ten stories, began to crumble, to dissolve. Panicked, David jerked back on the joystick, bringing the craft to a hurried halt, hovering silently about thirty feet from the ground as the awful scene before them continued to its conclusion. Floor after floor slowly collapsed in on themselves, hurling enormous sections of masonry hundreds of yards into the air and in the process completely engulfing half a dozen smaller structures near its base; until after perhaps thirty seconds there was nothing left but a slowly ascending pall of smoky dust, and on the ground a huge pile of shattered rubble.
'You are so in trouble.'
