Airship Captain Ahab hunting the white air-kraken.

I just thought I'd share. I'm not even sure if this has been done before or if anyone else has thought of this. Yep. If not, someone should totally do this.

Having ideas is dangerous.

I am still trying to work out how to let the dear reader know that the war-cry of the Wellsian Martians (Sargeant-Major Henderson is defending a Barsoomian air-plant from them at the moment [okay, it is Rourke's Drift with the serial number filed off and a new coat of paint]) is the "yip-yip-yip, uh-huh" of the Muppet Martians.

Also, because of the low air pressure even in the dead sea bottoms of Mars, members of the Expeditionary Forces are issued a type of pressure flask to heat their water for tea.  Otherwise it never gets hot enough to make a decent cuppa.  Newcomers provide great amusement to established campaigners but neglecting to vent the pressure correctly, and having thier tea shoot off to the nearer moon when they open the flask.

What "what?"

I thought we were sharing story ideas.

I just remembered a book I read back in the '70s.  The Wind Whales of Ishmael by Philip Jose Farmer.  Not very similar to your airbourne Ahab really, but it was a really enjoyable book.

"yip-yip-yip, uh-huh" of the Muppet Martians.

Tripple yapping agreement?

Tripple yap with an appended exclamation of agreement.

I am leaning more towards "an infernal yipping, with an occasional human loan-word thrown in, oftimes misused as if they had learned Earthly speech from some interplanetary Cook's Tour handbook."

My prose shades towards the purple when writing my unpublishable fiction.
