But wipe away those tears, because we’ve got the cure for your Firefly blues: free loot! Sign up before December 14th, 2015, and you’ll be entered in a drawing for one of these Firefly prizes:
“What was the last cargo we snuck past the Alliance to transport?”
“They were dolls.”
“They were little geisha dolls with big heads that wobbled!”
“Hey, people loved those!”
“Ah, curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!”
“Har har har! Mine is an evil laugh! Now die!”
AND THREE LUCKY RECIPIENTS
“You like ships. You don’t seem to be lookin’ at the destinations. What you care about is the ships, and mine’s the nicest.”
“She don’t look like much.”
“Oh, she’ll fool ya.”
