George was happy now. The aliens were back. He remembered the first time they visited him, how terrified he had been, but deep down, under that scratch proof Teflon surface, they really knew how to fry eggs. Since the first visit he had studied all their recipes, prepared now a smorgasbord of tasty delights for the evening session to begin in a few minutes: Salads of scrambled egg and popcorn, boiled egg-shell crunchy-cakes, and liquid egg slime to wash it down their metallic throats. In good faith the aliens had packaged all the hay of his fields using their matter movers and energy encapsulators. George had attention to detail and wanted to make this visit especially memorable. In addition to the food, he had arranged a cozy evening of entertainment to win over the aliens completely. Videos of My Favorite Martian, Mork and Mindy, and War of the Worlds must show them how interested he was in their culture. If all went well, they would award him the franchise for the McAlien Earthside Saucer Stop and he would never have to work the fields again.

(waving hello) I'm sure glad you finally tackled Sexy Maria Sharapova!

Hi Cory! At first I didn't understand what . Then I figured out it's that blogspotting thing. (Thanks to everyone who voted!). But you spoke too soon. Sexy Maria is back ahead again. Guess I'll have to make my stories sexier.

What was truly ironic was that the aliens had an additional and better offer than "McAlien Earthside Saucer Stop" -- they had a new product called Soylent Green they wanted to sell in Earth's supermarkets. People ate it up.

Pat: I...I finally deciphered their language. All of it. I read their book.

Kanamit's voice: Please move ahead. You're holding up our departure. Kindly move ahead.

Chambers: Well?

Pat: Mr. Chambers...Mr. Chambers, the first page is just a collection of English words with their own translation. But the rest of the book...the rest of the book...

Kanamit's voice: Kindly move ahead, please. Through the doors. You're holding up our departure.

Chambers: Write me about it. I'll have plenty of time to read letters. I'm going up there for a rest more than anything.

Pat: Not so much time as you think. Mr. Chambers...the rest of the book...To Serve's a cook book!
