Friday Flash Fiction 55 - The Alan Parsons Project

"Wow. What ancient crap are you listening to?"
"The Alan Parsons Project." I tell the boy.
"Like from Austin Powers?"
"No. Like from The Alan Parsons Project."
"Right. Austin Powers. Operation Wang Chung."
Enter No. 1 son, chortling. "Someone loves the 80's. What's for dinner?"
"Wiseass on a stick if you two don't shut up."

Dr. Evil: Anyways, the key to this plan is the giant laser. It was invented by the noted Cambridge physicist Dr. Parsons. Therefore, we shall call it the Alan Parsons Project.
Scott: Oh, my God.
Dr. Evil: What now?
Scott: The Alan Parsons Project is a progressive rock band in 1982. Why don’t you just name it ‘Operation Wang-Chung’? Ass.
Dr. Evil:  What should we. . .
Scott: Nothing. I’m sure ‘Operation Bananarama’ will be huge.
Dr. Evil:  What are you saying?
Scott: If you’re. . .
Dr. Evil:  Shh.
Scott:  . . .trying to be hip. . .
Dr. Evil:  www [dot] shh [dot] com . . . [dot] org.
