Who would have thought it?

It’s the dream of every scientist, the hope of every editor: we’ve detected intelligent life out there.

We fix our telescopes on space, we send out rockets and satellites containing messages etched on gold; we beam signals at the milky way, we drill and scratch at any planet or asteroid we can get our robots to land on.

Until now, nothing.

However, a three thousand year old probe sent to the planet Earth has suddenly reawakened and is now sending exciting signals from its riverine hideout – the creatures of the USA have rejected Donald Trump.

Intelligent beings found at last.

  1. Hilarious, Patrick. There’s hope for us at last. The light has dawned. Well done. 😀 — Suzanne

  2. Thank Goodness. I must admit I was starting to worry.

  3. And I have always felt that there was a lizard under the skin of Mr Trump.

    Nice! Some good news at last. 🙂


  5. Funny! You took a similar take to mine on the prompt, thinking about extraterrestrials. Funny bit about rejecting Donald Trump. 🙂

  6. I think they gave up on us long time ago, probably around the Spanish Inquisition. Great story, thank you for the laugh.

    Donald Trump. If he didn’t exist you’d never think of inventing him. Sharp last line!

    Hahah, what fun. The intro is wonderful with all our efforts listed, but the last lines are killers. Thanks for the good laugh.

  10. Dear Patrick,

    Does this mean we can ship Donald to another planet? Your story gives me hope. 😉

    Donald Trump might not be intelligent life but he recognises the stupidity of arming Al Qaeda in Syria.

  12. Oh, that last line made me laugh! Well done.

  13. Hahahahahahahahahahaha! A totally imaginative, brilliant post! (And I hope that what you say will turn out to be true!) Thanks for making my evening. This wins hands down as the best story I’ve read today.
