The aliens came, and the world prepared for war. However, each sent emissaries to discuss first. Earth’s returned, jubilant:
“They want to enslave us. But good news! We’ve discovered they don’t reproduce, so their planet’ll be ours soon!” Earth, greedy, joyfully capitulated!
…making the aliens worry the naiveté of their latest menu addition was infectious…
I (kinda) got the idea for this post from an episode of The Twilight Zone (the old one they produced in 1959. LOVED that series!), titled “To Serve Man.” The short episode can be watched in its entirety free on Vimeo here – it’s a classic!
