Comedy Break: Alien Science

In order to provide some educational content, Wizbang! Alien Theater presents . . .


Awhile back I reported that I took a job that resulted in me working with a woman with an apple fetish.

Well, one day during a work break I told her that I wondered what would happen if an Earth scientist encountered a scientist from another planet. The woman grinned and said, “I know of a film that features such a scenario, and it’s being shown tonight. Want to see it?

I said that I did, and so I arranged to meet the woman at the site of the film. Little did I know what I was in for.

The first clue that something was amiss was the sight of my co-worker wearing a hat that looked like this:

She also wore a top similar to this:

 . . . except that her top had less fabric.

I asked her if she had brought her apples with her.  She said that she hadn’t but that she had a couple of melons instead.  “Oh,” I replied. “Are they ripe yet?”

She looked at me like this:  and asked, “What planet did you say you were from?” “Melmac,” I replied, “Why do you ask?”

Anyway, we went inside the building, at which time we were surrounded by people who looked as if they had just arrived from some other planet.  I asked one of them, “Is the Alien Task Force looking for you, too?”  The person looked at me like this: and asked, “What planet are you from?” “Melmac,” I replied, “Why do you ask?”

Why people keep asking me that question I do not know.

Well, the film finally started.  As I expected, it was an educational film. To my surprise, the film featuring a dance lesson.

Eventually the film reached the part at which the first scientist revealed his latest discovery:

I figured out that the first scientist was not of Earth origin, which was a bit of a relief for me, because it frightened me to think that an Earth university would produce such a graduate. It’s bad enough that Earth universities produced the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters.

Anyway, the film ended with the revelation that the castle in the film was really the aliens’ space-ship. That detail made me suspicious about the castle located at my place of work. It also made me suspicious about my boss and his girlfriend. Could they be space aliens, too?

I asked my co-worker if she thought that they could also be from another planet.

She looked at me like this: and said, “You really are dopey.” Then she left. 

I never did get to sample her melons.

There is still much about Planet Earth that I do not understand.

At least I know more about Earth than these aliens:
