“But where?”





“Ladies and Gentlemen. Welcome to the 50th

Annual General meeting of The Intergalactic Council.”


“We have several issues on our agenda to discuss

and to vote on. We are pleased to welcome those

who deigned to attend.

First of all, I’d like you to pay scrupulous attention to

our first guest speaker. She founded the first

Humanitarian Council on Aliens. Her work has been

recognized, not only Globally, but throughout the

Universe. She has 50 publications and has received

recognition from experts in her field throughout the

Galaxy. Her scientific studies have also been published

and highly regarded amongst the scientific community,

both on our world and by the Intergalactic

Global Community of Observers, also known as the

IGCO. Please give her your undivided attention.

At the end of her dissertation you will be given explicit

instructions as to how you are to proceed.”


“This is earth shattering!”

“We’re not really supposed to do this. Are we?”

“Tell me I misunderstood.”


“Gentlemen please! Go to your headquarters and begin

the process immediately.”


“John let’s go.”

“But we can’t do that!”

“John. We can and we will. If we lose our positions with

Council we’re going to be treated like everyone else.”

“Fine! I don’t think I want to stay.”

“What did you say?”

“Oh. I mean …..”

“What exactly did you mean, John.”

“Well. My family has only been here for three generations.”

“Where are they from?”

“What’s that supposed to mean?”

“I guess that means you’re out.”

“But out where?”

Studies have shown that the alien population, that has infiltrated our world, is uniquely undisciplined and choose to unnecessarily disrupt the balance of our well-ordered and structured communities. They have also been charged with the decimation of our planet. It is of utmost importance for our members to track down and implement our removal policy immediately. No exceptions will be tolerated. That includes the infirm, the aged, the level of education, the political standing and financial status. Your pamphlets should answer any other questions you may have. You have the option of contacting the IGCO or your local law enforcement office, should you have any difficulties.
