    Fortunately a group of poison control nurses were enjoying happy hour at the next table and pulled a wide assortment of antidotes from their handbags.
  • TwilightTwilight Shipmate
    Unfortunately I don't think I can type fast enough for this.
  • Fortunately for Twilight, people and God love her anyway.
  • Unfortunately for Twilight, while she's been typing slowly, her tea has gone cold.
  • Fortunately the publican's dog smelled the scent, barked loudly, and alerted Prof. Cox to the danger before he took a sip.
  • SipechSipech Shipmate
    Unfortunately, the dog also had rabies and bit the aforementioned professor.
  • Fortunately the dog survived.
  • Fortunately they were able to market it as “craft ale”

    Unfortunately Brian Cox had to spend six months in quarantine.

    Fortunately he spent it on an island with a perfect view of a solar eclipse.
  • SipechSipech Shipmate
    Unfortunately, the island's only food source was a single fig tree.
  • Unfortunately somebody missed like 5 posts and responded to one WAY upstream.
  • Fortunately, in the parallel universe we arrived at somewhere on the last page, that is perfectly normal and coherent, and the island was the site of a destination wedding between Flash Gordon and Ming the Merciless.
  • Unfortunately Flash Gordon was being held captive by his archnemesis.

    Fortunately when the question was asked, "Does anyone know any reason why these two should not be joined in holy matrimony?" Bluto and Popeye simultaneously raised their hands.
  • Unfortunately this was because Bluto and Popeye were members of Westboro Baptist Church.
  • Fortunately not the infamous Westboro that most people know, but a different one.
  • Unfortunately they have very similar beliefs to the infamous one.
  • Fortunately, Brian Blessed was loud enough to overcome all distractions.

    {Where did he come from????]
  • Unfortunately Baptist Trainfan didn't see him come in.
  • Fortunately BT's wife did see him as,being a teacher, she has eyes in the back of her head.
  • Unfortunately she didn't recognize him and thought he was the pool boy.
  • Fortunately when he fell in the pool because he was distracted, she was there to rescue him.

    [Unlikely as she can't stand the man. However ... please continue].
  • Unfortunately, although she was there to rescue him, she didn't rescue him.
  • Fortunately, mousethief could take over as master of ceremonies and improvised a pithy eulogy for the 'pool boy' aka Brian Blessed
  • Unfortunately no-one could understand it as it was all in Greek.
  • Fortunately, the assembled guests whipped out Google Translate app and got the gist of what was being said, only a little garbled.
  • Unfortunately Mousethief can't speak Greek, so he was winging it from the pewback hymnal.
  • SipechSipech Shipmate
    Fortunately, nobody noticed (or at least, minded) the improvisation and a merry time was had by all.
  • jrwjrw Shipmate
    Unfortunately the day ended with everyone being arrested on suspicion of murdering Brian Blessed and locked in the island prison with no chance of bail.
  • Fortunately the island prison was a pleasant village with a curious resemblance to Portmeirion in Wales.
  • Unfortunately on that day the power went out and all the ice melted, so they had no cool drinks.
  • Fortunately tea is better hot.
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Unfortunately, because there was no power, the kettle didn't work either.*

    * I once worked for a notoriously tight-fisted lawyer, and when we had a power-cut, he suggested we take our coffee break so that he wouldn't lose any typist-minutes. Of course it didn't occur to him that the coffee-machine needed electricity ... 👀

  • Fortunately, the prisoners of the Village were too disoriented and paranoid to care much about what to drink.
  • Unfortunately, the prisoners of the Village were disoriented and paranoid.
  • TwilightTwilight Shipmate
    Fortunately some of the prisoners had seen "Papillon," and started planting vegetable gardens.
  • Unfortunately they'd also seen Papillon and chewed lots of coca leaves, thus thoroughly cranked up on cocaine.
  • Fortunately that meant they didn't feel the pain or shame of their condition, and had a great time.
  • Unfortunately, the Great Bouncing Bubble Gum Bubble bounced up from the beach, and entered the party!
  • Fortunately, a reader of The Great Gatsby entered stage left and was able to save the bubble by screaming "Lover, gold-hatted, high-bouncing lover, I must have you!" before any sugary bubble gum-haters punctured it.
  • Unfortunately the great bouncing bubble was part of the Village’s surreal security apparatus and promptly asphyxiated several of the more uppity partygoers.
  • TwilightTwilight Shipmate
    Fortunately the Great Bouncing Bubble Gum was easily fooled by the false humility of the Uriah Heap-like party goers.
  • Unfortunately those represented only a small proportion of those present.

    (How many remember this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6Ffr1U7KMY ?)
  • Fortunately while the bubble was distracted with all its smothering-work, one of the prisoners managed to construct a raft.

    I was getting worried that Golden Key was the only one who got the reference :)

    Unfortunately, they were in the Sahara.
  • Fortunately some ships of the desert showed up to ferry them to safety.
