Consumption, entertainment, and fun were the only things that occupied their minds. Everyone including the Prince was blissfully unaware of the dark trouble held in the Nefarious Nether Regions lurking just past the kingdom walls. The price of self indulgent luxury can be steep, and the kingdom had fallen into crisis. Royalty exalted a lifestyle of partying all night and shopping all day. People began to have so much they would throw things away the second they had purchased it.
This led to the disposal of waste by catapult over the kingdom walls into the Nefarious Nether Regions angering the sleeping forces that lay beyond. The Pink Plasma flow, the planet's main energy source, was faltering, and the Poppy crop was the most meager in years! Baron Nefarious had grown up with Prince Poppycock. In school he always came in second, and always was picking the short end of the stick. Always sniveling and obsequious to the Prince's face, he secretly hated him.
He spent his days plotting the kingdom of Poppycock's demise, and most of all the humiliation and banishment of his arch frenemy Prince Poppycock. In his grey and dismal industrial Kingdom his factories financed the frivolity of Prince Poppycock. After many years of plotting, on the night of what was to be the Prince Poppycock's grandest performance yet, Baron Nefarious set his plan into action. At the climax of the evening’s performance Baron Nefarious and his robot goons, take the King and Queen prisoner. As the Prince was being taken away he demanded his birth right and the throne that was rightfully his.
However only he who possessed the Poppycock Amulet was able to rule. Nefarious pulls the amulet out of his pocket and then proclaims himself emperor of the Kingdom of Poppycock. Launched in a giant space pod shaped like a Faberge egg, the prince desperately sabotages the rocket mid flight and crash lands into the dark side of the planet, The Nefarious Nether Region. There is hardly any food, hardly any sun, and the destitute citizens all needed help. The Prince becomes disillusioned and far worse, for the first time in his life dirty.
Lamenting his life in a scrap pile of discarded robot parts the Prince is abducted by a ship of marauding space pirates! Forced to swab the decks and work in the galley the Prince spends his days slowly learning the meaning of a hard day’s work. Eventually he earns the trust of Captain Morgan Fairchild, Devora the mystic living in an temple in the middle of the ship, and the crew; he learns to be a swashbuckling pirate himself, and what’s even more, a man. With the help of his new found pirate friends the prince returns to the Poppycock Kingdom, to find Baron Nefarious' changes already in place. The Kingdom he loved, the once golden utopia, was now an ugly totalitarian regime. They storm the Kingdom walls and the Prince manages to enter the throne room and faces Nefarious alone. Challenged to a duel Nefarious proposes that the location be the multiverse and their weapons be swords.
They don there slip stream suits, cover themselves in multiverse time and space jelly and carefully slip upon banana peels and into the multiverse they fall. In an apocalyptic battle Poppycock and Nefarious clash. The time space continuum is torn asunder and the two fall through planes of reality like sheets of glass, shattering through progressively stranger and stranger worlds. Poppycock breaks free of Nefarious' grasp and the two split onto divergent paths through the infinite possibilities of the multiverse. When Poppycock awoke he was on the strangest world of all, planet earth, stranded, and a refugee.
Poppycock was left to his own devices and only knew one way to survive....to sing. So now the prince will entertain, one audience at a time. Only hoping that each performance brings him closer to his journey home to reclaim the throne that is rightfully his... Read more on Last.fm.
