Beware the pagan acid-spitting plesiosaur

If you've ever wondered how writers come up with stories for science fiction comics like 2000 AD, wonder no more. Simply click here and you'll be transported to Alec Trench's Thrill Pitcher, a web page that automatically generates a new story scenario every time you click the button marked NO SUBTEXT! For example, I was just presented with this gem: He's a crashlanded punishment-dispensing graffitti artist who's battling for Britain. His ex-lover is a pagan trident-wielding fascist who owns a planet. They must stop Northpool from demolition by giant robots!

One thing that bothers me - why can't I write shit like that?
