Early in the 21st Century, the SFX Friday Bargains Round-Up advanced money saving into the next phase; they created a being virtually identical to a human. Known as a Bargainant, the beings were superior in strength and agility, and at least equal in intelligence, to the genetic engineers who created them. Bargainants were adept at saving money and hunting out bargains.
After a bloody mutiny by a combat/saving team in a closing down sale, all Bargainants were declared illegal.
Special squads – BARGAIN RUNNER UNITS – had orders to control and use, upon detection, any Bargainant. This was not called slavery. It was called cost effective.
Seeing as the SFX forum is still experiencing technical difficulties at the moment, please leave any comments or bargain finds you might like to share over on out Facebook page.
