The Universe is A Funny Place

“Once upon a time, wait…that’s been used, let’s try this.”

“A long time ago in a galaxy far far away.”

“Wait you can’t use that.”

“Why not?”

“Because it’s copyrighted or something.”

“What, no it’s not.”

“Guys, guys…chill it’s not the beginning, it’s the story that counts.”

“He’s right.”

“Fine, I agree.”

“How rude, they don’t know who we are.”

“Who’s they?”

“The readers that’s who they are.”

“Oh well, then I am Death Keeper of well, death” said Death.

“And I am Life and what was that?” said Life.

“And I am Balance and what do you mean” said Balance.

“That right there” said Life.

“That’s so they know who is talking” said Balance.

“We are getting off track, what are we talking about?” said Death.

“The galaxy, that’s what we were talking about” said Balance.

“Oh, how it was made. Well then that starts with me and the death of a star” said Death.

“You think they wonder what we look like” said Life.

“What? That’s off topic” said Death.

“Or maybe you just don’t want them to know you look like the grim reaper” said Life.

“What? No I don’t, I look like the guy who played Wolverine in the X-men movie” said Death.

“If you look like Hugh Jackman, then I look like Michael Buble, and Balance looks like Gandalf” said Life.

“Hey, I am not that old” said Balance.

“Yes you are, don’t lie Balance” said Death.

”Fine, I am old, back to the galaxy” said Balance.

“Don’t be mad Balance; you look like Gandalf but you have the voice of Morgan Freeman” said Life.

“Thank you, life” said Balance.

“Suck up” whispered Death.

“Death, don’t be rude” said Balance.

“Yeah, don’t be rude Death” said life.

“Life, don’t start” said Balance.

“Sorry, my bad” said Life.

“We should change the topic” said Balance.


“How about the dinosaurs, they were cool but then Death had to hit them with that huge asteroid” said Life.

“Sorry, had to follow the natural order of the galaxy,” said Death.

“Well, you look happy about it” said Life.

“Well I didn’t enjoy it, but I didn’t mind” said Death.

“Why didn’t you mind?” said Life.

“Well if you must know, I am not a fan of reptiles with scales and all, but with dinosaurs it was ten times worse because there ten times as big” said Death.

“You know what, reptiles don’t like YOU!” said Life.

“We better change the subject” said Balance.

“Fine, what about sickness?” said Death.

“Let’s not, how about the Vikings, they were a funny bunch” said Balance.

“They were not, they were pretty cool” said Death.


“What about Neptune or Poseidon, we should visit them; for those of you who don’t know, Neptune is Greek and Poseidon is Roman and here’s a twist, they’re brothers bet you didn’t see that coming” said Life.

“Alright, we’re going on a trip” said Balance.

“Hey, we never got to how the galaxy was made” said Death.

“We can talk about it later” said Life.

“Fine, whatever, how are we going to end this?” said Death.

“How about the end” said life.

“No, too simple and it’s been used to much” said Death.

“Well, do you have a better one?” said Life.


“This is going to be a long trip, bye folks.” said Balance.
