I read this and got into a mood ..here is my take on the flip side of things
Soldier: Sir, We've just picked up a transmission
General: A transmission from what?
Soldier: From space sir.
General: just the usual radio garbage reflecting back at us...you can disreguard it.
Soldier: Its actually intellegible language...not randomly spouted out. Clear coincise sentances.
General: From What?
Soldier: They say they are from beyond our galaxy, Sir.
General: Aliens then?
Soldier: It seems so, Sir
General: Ask them if they want permission to land and if they do let them. I want you to go out to them
and find out what they want.
Soldier: Yes sir!
Four hours later the soldier returns with a grimace on his face
General: Soldier, report!
Soldier: Sir, yes Sir! It appears that they want to live on this planet with us. They are willing
to provide technology to cure most diseases, solve the world hunger problem,
create clean efficient energy, and interstellar travel.
General: Holy smokes soldier! Don't that just beat all. Now why do you look disgusted?
Soldier: It their form Sir, they have no heads.
General: No heads you say! then what do they have?
Soldier: Butts Sir, Huge Butts atop a neck.
General: A Butt?! Good God how do they speak?
Soldier: By farting Sir.
Soldier: Thats right Sir, they fart.
General: Hmmm Ok I've got to brief the President. Meet me in my office in two hours.
Soldier: Yes Sir!
Two hours later
Soldier: Sir, I am here as requested sir.
General: The president has made a decision.
Soldier: What is that Sir?
General: No one would accept a talking Butt alien race. They look horrible and they smell attrocious.
Soldier: I agree.
General: Here is what we will do. First we will tell them that they cannot leave because they are
contaminated. Then we will get them to inform their race to leave this world alone because of viral
instability. Then we get rid of the evidence.
Soldier: But what about the technology and the world peace?
General: do you want to live next to an butthead?
Soldier: I will take care of it, Sir!
General: Good Dismissed.
makes you go hmmm...
