The atmosphere was electric at the dog track. It was Lightning Lil's 100th race. She had won eighty-seven of her previous races.
The bunny tore past the waiting dogs, as much in fear for its life as any electro-mechanical bunny could be.
Sock Puppet took the lead, followed by The Village Idiot, Shitehawk, Custody Battle, and last but not least, the appropriately named Brewers Droop.
Gasps of disbelief came from the crowd as they realised Lightning Lil had failed to start.
Lil had to malfunction sometime, after all this is 2085 and all of the greyhounds are robots.
