Drabble: What Is It?

Title: What Is It?

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Owen, Gwen, Tosh, Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 292 – The Billboard Hot 100 at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: So what’s this that has fallen through the rift? Jack and Tosh can’t agree.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Arriving back in the Hub with the latest bit of flotsam tossed out by the Rift, Jack and Owen dumped it on Tosh’s desk.

“What is it?” Gwen asked, leaning over Owen’s shoulder to peer at the object.

“From the shape, I’d say it’s Caffronian,” Jack replied. “Look at the flanges.”

“I don’t think so,” Tosh disagreed, “It looks more like one of those cooking devices from the Riffix Nebula.”

Ianto strolled over with coffee for everyone. Picking the object up, he turned it over, examining it carefully.

“You’re both wrong,” he smirked, “Says right here, ‘Made in the USA’.”

The End

A/N: Song title used is ‘Made in the USA’


Hehe very clever!
All the way through I was thinking what on earth can the song title be?
Then I got to the last line and I groaned and thought oh bloody hell!
Well done!
*giggles* It was irresistible! Ianto really does know everything.

Thank you.

My other three have the song title as the drabble title.

Or Made in Japan. Or Taiwan...

The rift knows no boundaries though. lol!

Thank you.
just awesome ahahahaha
*giggles* Thank you!

I agree - Ianto is definitely awesome!
I love it, assuming things that come through the Rift are all alien...and of course Ianto is correct, because he knows everything!
He really does!

It's a rift through time as well as space, therefore objects from earth's past or future are just as likely as stuff from other worlds. They're just usually less interesting.

Thank you.

But maybe it said Made in the USA - New New New York!
Could be - but even then, Jack and Tosh would still be wrong!

Thank you!

Are you watching the current Kittycam? Such cuties =D

True. Yes I am. I'm also watching

Not to mention all the facebook pages of FDJ's former kittens and cat moms.

So many kittehs, so little time, LOL

How on earth do you manage to keep up with them all? The sleeping kitties are making me sleepy too, I keep dozing off when I should be getting another drabble posted... I'll check out the other feeds when I've done that, thanks for the links!
I just give them a quick check at lunch and in the evening. The Looney kitties aren't doing a whole lot yet - so I pretty much just find where FDJ visits and watch that.

The others vary. Lot's of times its just sleeping - so again, yawn! Out of the bunch there's usually one or two with active kittens - that what I like.

Not surprisingly, I find human infants boring, but I love toddlers!
They may not be doing much most of the time, but they're so cute when thy do. I love them all, but I have a soft spot for Marvin, and Penny reminds me a bit of our chilhood kitty Pom Pom. (I wanted to keep Spotty out of the litter, I guess that's why I like Marvin so much *g*.)

I prefer animals to children anyway, lol!
Hahah way off guys.

great drabble.
Thank you!

Yes, they should have been looking closer to home, lol!
LOL! Ianto knows to always start with the obvious!

Of course, WHEN it's from might be a little harder to determine. Unless it's got a date stamped on it too. :-p
I suspect it's from the future, since it's not instantly recognisable to Tosh, but yeah, Ianto knows to take a good look before speculating on something's origin. It just might already have a label!

Thank you!
When in doubt go to Ianto because he knows everything and looks good in a suit.:-)
Exactly! Plus, he knows to look for labels and identifying marks instead of just guessing.
Love it! Ianto is always the sensible one.
And the most observant - in my opinion, anyway!

Thank you!
Snerk. :)
Thank you! I do so enjoy having Ianto notice things the supposed experts don't!
:) Wonderful job and cute twist at the end. Ianto figures out and knows everything as always :)
Ianto uses his eyes, lol! If you look at something carefully, you can learn a lot!

Thank you!
