Oh dear god this is silly.

Title: Deleted!
Fandom: Doctor Who
Length: 100 words (boo yah!)
Warnings: References to Season Two episodes 'Rise of the Cybermen' and 'Age of Steel'. And... is 'cracked-out crossover' a warning?
Critique wanted: does anyone actually get the joke? Is it embarrassingly cheesy? Do Brits still use the spelling 'tyre'? Help. ^^;;


The Doctor wasn’t looking where he was going as he skidded around the end of the white fence. He put his foot through an old tyre and fell hard, and rolled onto his back to stare up at his glittering steel pursuer.

‘You are incompatible!’ it droned triumphantly. ‘You will be BALEETED!’

The Doctor blinked. ‘What?’

It tried again. ‘You will be – DELTEATED!’

He kept a wary eye on it as he removed his foot from the tyre, and shook his head slowly.

‘...DEL TACO?’ it queried.

The Doctor leapt to his feet, threw the tyre at it, and fled.

I,um, don't get the joke; but British people do spell 'tyre' that way, and I thought the idea of the baffled Doctor was amusing. I could see it playing out in my head even though I don't know who was chasing him! ^^

Thanks. :D I couldn't remember reading any recent British books mentioning tyres/tires, and wasn't sure if it was obsolete or not.

It's Homestar Runner as a Cyberman. We're getting into seriously obscure geek territory here. ^^;;

Nope, it's fine.
Ah, good, something I hadn't heard of! I was worried I had and was being a ditz ^^
Who's that in your icon, btw? Looks familiar...

Now that I did know (haven't seen it, but have read about it). Thanks!
