The Earth is Doomed (or is it?)

Quarrog was always surprised how easy it was to infiltrate the homes of his victims.  In fact, he didn’t have to do anything at all…they just picked him up and carried him in.  Once he sent word back to his home planet, he was confident the invasion of “Thee-yurth” (as the inhabitants called it) would be quite successful.

What he didn’t realize was that the only reason he was getting in so easily was that he looked exactly like a lamp, and the only homes that his people would infiltrate were the ones where the owners were shopping for lamps.

  1. Haha, Bryan. I thought he was a virus or something. But I’m still not feeling good about this. How many people don’t have lamps, more than one usually. I hope the ones from IKEA are Quarrog-free!

  2. It might take Quarrug and his kind an aeon or two to take over Thee-yurth. But you know, I saw a new lighting shop open up not far from my office, so….
    A good little chortle for a Friday, Bryan!
