Be an Alien Liaison

The UN, having apparently solved all problems here on Earth, has an “Office for Outer Space Affairs” headed by astrophysicist Mazlan Othman. The British press recently reported that Othman had been appointed an official Earth spokesperson for alien contact, which she denied.

Clearly, that means the job is available for someone else.

Over at Wired, Lore Sjöberg makes an excellent case as to why it should be him.

We’ll probably want to give our new inhuman pals a little memento of Earth to bring back to their planet and remember us by. Luckily, I know how to wrap a platypus.

If we are visited by the Man from Mars, I will endeavor to make sure he stops eating cars and eating bars and, from now on, will only eat guitars.

If a mostly human-looking guy steps out of a spaceship and he’s holding a cat or a plant or a shiny box or something, I will address the cat/plant/box instead of the guy because, trust me, that’s how it works.

See the rest here.
