What Aliens Probably Think Of Us


In honor of Wiley Miller's wry take on the general absurdities of modern life, I'd like to share one of my favorite commentaries:

Lars From Mars
I've actually had this clipping on my refrigerator, nestled between NASA magnets, for more than a year. I was disappointed he didn't use this character for an entire series or story arc, given the rich pickings of how aliens might view humanity -- particularly sarcastic, advanced, flippant aliens.

Think of the possibilities.

Recently, a visiting friend caught sight of this on the aforementioned icebox, and practically had to be revived with smelling salts after a fit of hilarity. So I am appreciating my old cut-out cartoon with new eyes today, thanks Gill.

The original, and many other hilarious pieces (space and otherwise) are available at the Non Sequitur section of the GoComics Site.
