An interview with the aliensInterviewer: Good morning world! Today CNN has done what humanity has dreamt for decades. We have secured an interview with Tralfagmadors. As we all know these extraterrestrial guests arrived here the last month on 15th August, Tuesday. They say they are from the Andromeda Galaxy, from the planet Tralfag. This exclusive interview is live at GST 17:30.
( The interview begins as the two Tralfagmadorians, a couple, dressed in red robes come forth to the chair opposite to the CNN interviewer).
Interviewer: Good day Tralfagmadors! (Lends hand for a shake).
Tralfagmadors reached out their dominant tentacles to shake his hand.
Interviewer: Haha..I- I- I don't know where to begin with. Ok. Let's start with names. I'm Robert Trujilo. Can you both disclose your names to the world ?
Tralfagmadors activated their translators and the female spoke from her beak: Hello Robert! I am Cklg and this is my husband Jrty. We come from Tralfag as you already introduced. We came here after accidentally reading NASA's radio signals(SETI). We needed mica to build burnt circuits in our spacecraft. Currently our aircraft sits under NASA's hangar and leading scientists your Earth are working on it.
Interviewer: Well Cklg...do you have a surname? We don't address people on earth by their first names in our first meeting.
Cklg: We are not familiar with the concept of second name...,Trujilo. But my husband here, bears the name Jrty Cklg denoting I am his wife. We also noticed one thing here. You have the concept of vowels on Earth. We find it really hard to articulate using vowels so in our planet we don't use vowels much. I know what your next question would be. Yes Tralfagmadors can count well beyond 10^100.
Interviewer: No need for that Cklg. We are no professionals. We just want the general public to know how an everyday life of a Tralfagmador goes.
Cklg to Jrty: Should I tell him? *Giggles*. Cklg continues," It was the Tralfag festival of Great sea. Our world is filled with water. I was a seasoned boat racer. Then three earth years ago I met Jrty. He was standing in the crowd blushing at me. He then approached me when I held my trophy in my tentacles proudly. He gently asked,"You are very good at boating. Can I sit behind you in your boat?" I fell in love with his gentleness. Oh I forgot to mention. Our males are smaller and gentler than our females. We females do the majority of work. When Jrty and I got pregnant, I gave him our eggs and he gently caressed them for two whole days till they hatched. Jrty and I were full time astronomers though. That is how we ended here. I miss my kids a lot. I hope grandma Ymir is taking good care of them."
Cameraman smiles at the audio mixer and said,"She talks so much!!! Women are same all around the universe!"
Interviewer thinks to himself,"Wow. I didn't have to speak anything at all. She took care of the whole scene herself. She is really an independent woman."
Interviewer: Well that concludes our interview for today. Catch us tomorrow, GST 17:30, at CNN NEWS. "Exclusive interview with extra terrestrials".
