Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey
Jack Handey V/O:
If aliens from outer space ever come
and we show them our civilization
and they make fun of it,
we should say we were just kidding,
that this isn’t really our civilization,
but a gag we hoped they would like.
Then we tell them to come back in twenty years
to see our REAL civilization.
After that, we start a crash program of
coming up with an impressive new civilization.
Either that, or just shoot down the aliens
as they’re waving good-bye.
