Have the aliens landed yet?


“Have the aliens landed yet?” Linda was reading a blog on her iPhone.

“What?” I said.

“I said have the aliens landed yet?”

“They’re already here!” I whispered urgently. “I worked it out last week.”

“What? Aliens…” Linda laughed out loud.

“Shush, they’ll hear you. They’ve been here for years slowly integrating into our society.”

“Don’t be silly Charlie, how can they be? We’d notice”

“Look at the state the world is in and then there’s reality TV turning people’s brains into mush, everyone obsessed with their fifteen minutes of fame like Andy Warhol said and no-one’s reading books anymore. We’ll all end up like zombies!”

“Andy who?” Linda was on her phone again. “That’s funny! Hashtag aliens have landed.” She laughed.

“Weren’t you listening to a word I said?”

“Oh come on Charlie if it was true it would be all over the internet.”

“Linda you don’t understand, they are the internet!”
