A randy young Dalek named Nate
Was getting dressed up for a date.
He needed repairs,
So he avoided the stairs
And proceeded to EXTERMINATE!!!
Just don't ask me for one of those double-dactyly thingies.

ON DALEK PROTRUBERANCES
The Daleks are robotic genii
Each with a stalk-mounted beady eye;
They've got ray-guns and suckers
But the poor robot fuckers
Don't have any Dalekoid penii.
All the best,
A girl-Dalek, fresh in from Venus,
Soon landed a boy-Dalek genius
When she said, "Let's get hot!"
He replied, "I cannot --
The Doctor has unscrewed my penis."

The contest is now over because I just won. The end no givebacks.
But what do Daleks eat under there?

So the so-called "sonic screwdriver" was really a stolen Dalek
willy? This explains why the Daleks were always so annoyed at
the Doctor. Probably, as they have socket mountings for arms and
weapons, they only ever had one penis among the lot of them,
which they used to pass around on a time-sharing basis, each
shouting E-JAC-U-LATE!1! E-JAC-U-LATE!! when it was their turn
with the robowanger. Once the Doctor had kliftied the sole Dalek
todger, all the Daleks were compelled to become lesbians. This
must be what the "reversing the polarity" meme really means.
The shell of a Dalek's first grade.
It'll ward off gunshots or grenades.
But it's counterproductive
in milieus more seductive;
Armored Daleks can never get laid.

You know, it's funny you should mention those guys, since I just scored
a copy of the Vidfire/telesnap reconstruction of the little-known
*first* adaptation of _Doctor Who_ for American consumption, the movie
musical from 1967 starring Dick van Dyke and Natalie Wood. Seems MGM
destroyed all complete copies but there was some cutting-room footage
in the archives of the apartheid-era Transkei censors' office that got
lifted by a fan in 1991 who then sold it in Hyderabad in '94 and that
in turn somehow showed up on eBay sometime around '02 mislabeled as the
lost episodes of _Automan_. Funny world.
Yeah, it's called _The Fantastical Doctor Who and his Phantasmical Time
Machine, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Daleks_. I
looked up the production history; pretty troubled. It was apparently
supposed to be a Peter Sellers star vehicle but he demanded lots of
changes to the script, like, he was going to regenerate eight times and
he also played the Meddling Monk and Victoria Waterfield and most of
the Yeti and the TARDIS was going to be Peter Sellers in a box saying
"vworp vworp", and eventually Irwin Allen got fed up and fired him.
Anyway, the finished product is actually pretty entertaining. I mean,
you have to watch it on the right level. For the whole first half van
Dyke is playing this decrepit old dude in a long white beard, tottering
all over the place and doing the "nearly falling over" shtick and going
"hmmmmm???" six times in every sentence, and his friends are Natalie
(they couldn't get Marni Nixon to do the singing voice; it's an
uncredited Julie Andrews) and James Darren, who is supposed to be some
sort of gold prospector and is always looking around for somebody to
punch, for some reason. They stumble into his machine in I. M.
Foreman's junkyard, only this time it's in old-timey California in some
vague 19th century, and it doesn't look like a police box, it's all
dark wood and brass with wheezing bellows and Watt steam governors on
the outside. Allen must have spent half the movie's budget on that,
considering that they spend most of the movie to the midpoint on a
papier-mache prehistoric set being menaced by Jamie Farr and Vic
Tayback in loincloths, and then there's an incomprehensible musical
number with Arch Hall, Junior as the Rock and Roll Caveman.
And then Tayback hits van Dyke over the head with his big
chicken-drumstick club, and there are tweeting-bird noises, van Dyke
falls on the ground and lap dissolves through a jelly jar into... Dick
van Dyke with no beard! Who does a happy dance and sings a song about
how lucky Time Lords are because they have onetwothreefourfivesixSEVEN
LIVES! (I don't think the numbers had been worked out quite yet), and
then it's off to the planet Skaro in the year Forty Million where they
witness the post-atomic creation of the Daleks by the mad scientist
Yarvelling. Only Jamie Farr's with them. Did I mention that he
invented Flower Power in the year Umpted Hundred Thousand BC? There
was a song about it. Anyway James Darren wants to punch all the Daleks
(his character is named Absalom something, I forget), but Natalie Wood
convinces Jamie Farr to use Flower Power on them, and he sticks flowers
in their toilet plungers and they all decide to play trains instead of
exterminating everyone. It's kind of sweet.
I liked it very much I ran out of ideas it's bedtime the end.
