    Senator Perry first shocked, then enchanted Congress when he tore off his human mask and suggested a bold new initiative: The deficit should be paid for by growing and selling the poor as gourmet food.

  2. Herm Says:

    The so-called bold new initiative sounds more like a modest proposal to me.

    Who speaks the language of lizard Mrs Doubtfire? A scaly perm, I’ve never seen the like.

  4. Tom Noir Says:

    I think you need to get that checked.

  5. fred Says:

    I don’t know about the language of the stars but that baby knows the universal sign for “My butt isn’t big enough give me another cheeseburger please.”

    This cover frightens me… it’s like an alien version of the child catcher from chitty chitty bang bang!

    Who speaks the language of the stars?

    Why, I do on my new chat show… “The Morbo Show”

    Puny humans.

  8. Smith Says:

    No, I don’t think you quite understand “test tube babies”…

  9. Jerk of all Trades Says:

    And you thought green skittles grew up to be green skittles.

  10. kurt Says:

    if it’s the future, why do they use plastic wrap & rubber bands to cover the test tubes? Couldn’t they find anything better?

    It’s the Jolly Green Giant’s (less often spoken of) younger brother. He was always jealous of Jolly for having all the looks in the family…

    I would like to ask my distinguished college Senator Perry why it is that aliens like himself are able to fit into perfectly sized human masks, yet when they rip them off, their own heads are always revealed to be slightly larger than human-sized.

    (Seriously, have we been so conditioned by the latex deployed in Star Trek and assorted sci-fi movies that we just always expect aliens to have kinda big heads?)

    Milo Yiannopoulos moves in for the kill…

  15. A.R.Yngve Says:

    DSWBT, that is unfair to green-skinned baby-eating aliens everywhere! Shame on you!

  16. Dead Stuff with Big Teeth Says:

    @AR: Who speaks the language of the Breibarts? 😉

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    It’s the pearls, you know? They just ooze gravitas. Otherwise it’s just ooze.

  18. classicOz Says:

    I don’t know. Doctor Who used green bubble wrap to great effect in the “Ark in Space”

    Alternatively a bit of benzoyl peroxide might do the trick.

  19. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @kurt may no longer be around, but I’ve got to agree with him on the plastic wrap and rubber bands. Has the future lost both screw-top and snap-on lid tech? Or did the green bubble wrap alien just lose the lids down the back of the cupboard, as so often happens, or they got warped in the alien dishwasher or something?

    I dunno, watching both the original and reboot of V leads me to believe baby is going to be a nice snack when green alien opens up its jaws. They are hinged all the way back to the ears.

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    On second thought, he looks less like an alt-right bro and more like this reptile.

  21. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Hey! That reptile at least wasn’t interested in babies.

    Of course, this reptile’s growing its own, so we don’t know exactly what stage it likes its humans at.
