    I was wondering what had become of Neil Armstrong. Now I know. He has swollen up to Earth-swallowing size, but his head has become squashed and purple, and he has lost three fingers from each hand. Goodness knows what he’s done to the Moon.

    “Godammit, they never have a suit in my size!”

    It’s not really an alien invasion if just one alien can pick up the planet and shoot some hoops with it.

    Surely to invade, you’ve got to be able to occupy, not just grab hold of.

    That’s no ‘amorphous pink vessel’. That’s a part of the human male anatomy, thrusting off into the depths of space…

    “ewww gross… this rock is all covered in stuff!”

    Is it MODOK or Krang? I can’t quite tell. Either way, he’s too big to cause us any accommodation problems by trying to invade Earth itself, causing us to need the mother of all spare rooms in which to put him up, so I don’t see the bother, frankly.

  8. Jaouad Says:

    Wait till that rock cracks open (which will happen quite easily if he grabs hold of it too tightly.) He’ll be in for a nasty and sticky surprise…

    They have technology so far in advance of ours that they are able to bridge great gulfs of space … but their spacesuit technology is equivalent to twentieth century NASA’s?

    Using my curious Earthling logic “and many more…” should equal 11 (ignoring any possible double dipping by an author). Does this discovery make me more or less clever than an invading alien?

    Does his space helmet have wholes for his antennas to stick out and somehow connect to the rest of his space suit? Or is this some kind of cable that emerges from the suit and somehow merges with the glass? And what’s with all those wrinkles in his uniform?

  12. Jaouad Says:

    That’s not a suit. That’s obviously part of its exoskeletal structure. Those antennae are its eyebrows.

    Well of course invaders from space would look like giant scaly babies.

    Message from Earth to invading creature: Don’t look now, but you have a bug crawling up your arm…
