Rapid Evolution

Aboard an alien starship, Captain Xom mourned for Agent Yuwl. “The humans in Smithtown, Alabama mistook him for a goat and ate him.”

“Far worse than that,” howled Scientist Pewf. “His unusual DNA might’ve combined with humans to create a super-intellect.”

“Ridiculous,” said Xom.

“It could, and this recombining could finish within days. Humans might produce advanced tech hours later!”

“Pure hyperbole,” scoffed Xom.

“Incoming communication on the Scitubilating Halviwarbulator, sir,” said technician Pbut. “From Alabama.”

“That’s our super-advanced communications system,” shuddered Xom. “On speaker.”

The voice of Amy-Jo Jones echoed, “Liked yer goat, y’all. Send down some more…or else.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

  1. Oh.. sounds that the DNA found a way of combining after all… but not in a good way (and from Alabama of all places)

    Not much recombination has happened apparently. Goat has only become tastier.
