There are some CTs which have no fluff texts, if we want them all with one, I'll need help from all of you, so post here and I'll add one of the suggestions to the ones that are going to V1.
The authors of the CTs have preference.
The texts without fluff texts are (that are being revised at the moment):

Ventriculant http://www.xcomufo.c...?showtopic=2724
Artopod Autopsy http://www.xcomufo.c...?showtopic=5937
Terror-Disc http://www.xcomufo.c...?showtopic=2523
Viper http://www.xcomufo.c...?showtopic=1946
Grey Autopsy http://www.xcomufo.c...?showtopic=5691
Morlock http://www.xcomufo.c...?showtopic=1961

I'll submit the first suggestion, for Viper (might not be too good, I grant you that :))

"...Well, it's stupid, it seems like a half-snake half-man to me, why aren't we calling it the Snakeman?, ...what the heck do you mean by copyrights?"

Here's one for the Morlocks, it's kinda rough, but I'll try to clean it up:

"That dude that had the time machine, you know, the one in the H.G. Wells book, I bet he never had it this bad. Heck, at least those guys were somewhat human....."

We have to admit that Azrael's is the most creative one. Unfortunately, I have to admit that most fluffy texts don't make me laugh, maybe it's my taste :P.

But, most of them are "clever", that's why I like them :D

It's a bit silly, but the hellenic version (which I though first) sounds funny indeed :D
Let's see...:

(Conversation between some young and newly-hired X-Corps scientists)
- Strange creatures... Great brain, but otherwise quite simple...
- Why don't they have hair?!?
- Because it would fall inside the mutilated bodies and would make a mess! :D

Artopod:

"Duuuuude, how do I get my hands on one of those?"
"Get telepathic powers."
"Erm..."

"Just like Mechwarrior!"
or
"I used to play with these guys in High School!"
or
"A walking 'mech eh? These guys have played too many videogames..."

"Man that big eye is freaky, its like its looking at me wherever a go..."

etc. etc.

Trying to throw out a bunch so maybe one will hit right ^_^

Anyway, I didn't put the exact name in the Alien Grenade fluff due to copyrights and what not so you might want to take another look at it.

Grey autopsy:

"And here I always thought that 'alien autopsy' video was faked..."

Somewhat cliched and very similar to what others have proposed, but...err...

Or how about,

"Alright, bring me one of the anal probes. I'm going to have to go in...manually..."
I'm only partially inactive. :P I can still be reached at cpl.facehugger@gmail.com, and via PM. Preferably the former.

LOL! These are hilarious! Anyway, I've tried, but my fluff texts aren't nearly this quality. I was thinking, maybe someone here could do Fusion Ball Defense fluff? If you still think I can do it, take a look at these pathetic attempts:

Commander: "Argh, UFO approaching base! Hanson, activate the Fusion Ball Turret!"
Hanson: "Gotcha, chief!" <run to control module>
Commander: "Activate the waypoints! Now, fire on my mark! Three, two, one. . ."
Hanson: "AHHH! MIGRAINE!" <waypoints start appearing everywhere>

The above one operates on the Mind-to-Machine waypoint system, but last I checked, we got rid of that concept, so this is a no-go. I don't know why I bothered posting it. Here's one that at least fits the entry to-date:

Commander: "Incoming UFO! It's heading riht for us! Arm the Fusion Ball Defense!"
Technician: <run to control module> "Waypoints are set!"
Commander: "Good, now, remember the damage radius of these things! We don't want to knock down that mountain!"
Technician: "Okay, the bugger's almost here. . .wait for it. . .OH NO, HE'S RIGHT NEXT TO THE BASE! <fires off dozens of shots randomly>
Commander: "YOU FOOL! I JUST TOLD YOU NOT TO F--"
