ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE GALAXY:
Alien 1: Good news, we just got images from earth, all their star charts.
Alien 2: Very interesting, lets have a look.
Alien 1: (pointing to the star chart) This star is called Altair, it means Flying Eagle
Alien 2: Very impressive. That’s a strong proud name.
Alien 1: And this one’s called Arcturus, it means Guardian of the Bear
Alien 2: Wow, that’s a bold name. What’s our star named?
Alien 1: mmmmm..let me see…uh.. our star is named….Mrs. Greta Nussbaum
Alien 2: Mrs. Greta Nussbaum?…Is that the name of a powerful animal or a god?
Alien 1: mmmm..um… let’s take a look…No, it appears that Mrs. Greta Nussbaum is an old woman living in a place called New Jersey.
Alien 2: Is she a powerful godlike old woman?
Alien 1: Doesn’t seem to be, her son named a random star for her as a mothers day present. It cost him 20 earth dollars.
Alien 2: What’s wrong with flowers and a card, or a nice dinner? This makes no sense.
Alien 1: He thought the star thing would be more impressive. He did get a plaque and a bracelet with our stars exact location
Alien 2: A Plaque and a bracelet, huh….mmmm…So…let me get this straight…Our star…the thing that gives life to our planet and all the planets in this solar system was named after an old woman, on a whim by an idiot…for 20 earth dollars…This is an insult…..We must destroy earth.
Alien 1: I concur
