Oh man, what’s an alien mom to do?
Ughh - there goes breakfast
Oh no, now she’s going to take her anger out on Winky!
Where’s the ham? I see the green eggs..
Runs with Beer- that ham would be Brewster, he’s right there!
Brewster, I’d like to see you try to take those eggs away from her. They’ll be a lot of scrambling going on!
Why I buy directly from the farm.
So, um, we think we should discuss the bonus situation…
If anything, I’d be recalling the salmonella due to alien contamination.
Seriously, She’s Ms. Alien? Do they all have the surname Alien?
That’s gotta be confusing…
This sure is a quick turnaround on a current event item, or Rickard got lucky.
Is Ms. Alien also an unwed mother?
Absent father… tsk, tsk.
Rush L. is likely to take issue with another single mother wanting offspring.
Trebor39, I may be wrong, but I think so. IIRC the female lays eggs alone. IIRC, one of the novels (though it’s been a lot of years) said that if the Queen was lost, a powerful drone (normal alien) would go through some weird, massive hormonal shift and become the new queen. Thus, more implied than said, asexual reproduction.
And in this case? I think we can manage–Brewster will be the new “father” instead. He’s fresh meat, after all.
PS: You guys have no idea about the egg situation and how close Queens are to them….
I would not eat them out in space,
I could not eat them from a vase,
I would not, could not, with Swiss cheese,
I would not, could not, in the breeze;
If any get in my ice cream,
You would not, could not, hear me scream.
To quote John Hurt, in SpaceBalls”, “Oh no! Not again!”
But what’s she been eating.
Humans are notoriously infected,
With all kinds of nasty things.
are they ‘free-range”?
In space, the USDA can’t hear you protest!
Good point, ChukLitl, are the space marines going to get recalled too?
Was John Hurt quoting a pot of petunias?
Those eggs might go bad. Someone could die from them.
