The Holly Hop Drive by squirminator2k The Holly Hop Drive by squirminator2k
"It's fairly straightforward. If you want to start it you press 'START,' and you can work out the rest of the controls for yourself."

These were such simple instructions that when the chaps at Ganymede & Titan asked me to do more of my "Instructional Dwarfagrams" (clever wording, I know), and someone suggested I do a set of Holly Hop Drive instructions, it struck me that it'd be very amusing to take that simplicity and throw it out the window. Instead of the rather obvious "START" and "STOP" legend I could have done, I decided to give it over-inflated, unnecessarily bulky instructions.

There's a typo in there that I didn't notice until a moment ago, but I've decided to keep it in. After all, when was the last time you read an Instruction Manual that didn't have a piece of garbled text in it?

I'll never forget the line: "It's fairly straightforward. If you want to start it you press 'START,' and you can work out the rest of the controls for yourself." because the disc that had this episode and the other episodes of the season on it got stuck on the menu and Holly kept saying that line over and over and over again.
