The world stared in awe today at the two lastest space-beings that have come to make their home in LA, Calif. The "odd couple" as they have been described, arrived in a blaze of media hype.
One, apparently, is a self-centred bolshie egomanic, who wanted its driving license photo retouched because the lipstick was askew. The other has decided to play professional soccer in a country that doesn't actually know what soccer is.
According to scientists, the space beings, who allegedly come from a planet "far, far away" , show little if any of the superior intellect that would be expected of inter-galactic space travellers.
"Obvious, really," said a spokesman for the Scientific community, "In the first place, one of them looks like a stick insect with blonde hair stuck randomly to its head. I mean, you can find examples of this all over LA, anywhere you look. There is another school of thought that maybe all the other blonde stick insects are alien too, and we have been invaded already, and don't know it.
Secondly, why pick LA? Surely, there's better places than that dump to live?
Thirdly, and this is most important, you'd think that the male one (we assume its male, it has a slightly deeper voice) would have learned how to speak properly. It seems to say "yer know" a lot, and sort of mumbles incoherently most of the time."
With the scientific community divided as to whether they're incredibly stupid or really sophisticated and clever, we asked someone in the know, who moves in fine circles in the LA area.
"Who? Oh, them. Well, don't give a f*ck much, long as they stay away from me." said the bag lady.
