Prompt: peanut butter


In the end, the reason that Team Cougar got to return to Earth was peanut butter. The Information Officer (who only ever thought of himself as Tommy anymore) had an eloquent and impassioned argument, but the Transmitter simply shouted, "Peanut butter!" and Mrs. Big Giant Head started reminiscing about cheeto and peanut butter sandwiches. So then the Big Giant Head decided that sounded good and ordered a return mission to get some for him.

Team Cougar went back to Ohio and bought a jar of Peter Pan creamy peanut butter. Harry picked out the perfect bag of cheetos, Tommy chose a loaf of Bunny bread, and they sent all three to the Big Giant Head and his lovely wife.

The High Commander and his team were given another mission, to continue their study of human cultures: find all the best food and submit samples for review.

It had been a year since they left, so Dick and Sally had to woo Mary and Don all over again. Tommy chose another college and a different major, with a plan he didn't tell anyone in place. And Harry became a stand-up comic, whose main gag was being unfunny.

All in all, Tommy thought, the humans could have a worse overlord than him.
