Conversations With Oliver Part 2

Alien 1: Do you have the specimen?

Alien 2: Yeah, he seems pretty typical of this life form. Apparently, they call them ... humans.

A1: Have you sufficiently replaced him with one of our cyborgs without anyone knowing?

A2: Yes, we had one that was just the right size.

A1: Perfect! Okay, bring the specimen to, so we can find out about his ways in preparation for the invasion.


A2: Human? Human! Wake up, we have much to ask you.

Oliver Perez: Wha, what happened?

A1: You are under our control.

OP: But I'm supposed to pitch tonight.

A2: Pitch? What is this "pitch" you refer to.

OP: It's a slider. I've been working on it extra with Dan Warthen.

A1: Who is this, Warthen? Is he your leader?

OP: Yes.

A1: Tiberius, bring me Warthen ... dead or alive!

OP: Hey, are you guys aliens?

A1: Do not fight us, mere human.

OP: Oh wow, this is so cool, I have so many questions to ask you! What color is the sky in your world?

A2: Ummm ...

OP: Hey, if you're aliens, how do you know so much English?

A1: You ask too many questions.

OP: Do you get SNY up here?

A2: Yeah, this is a state of the art space travel craft. We get all galaxial stations ... but the reception on Bravo comes in a little fuzzy.

OP: Oooh, let me see who is pitching for me since I'm missing.

A1: We have replaced you with a cyborg!

A2: Yeah, they have no idea you're gone.

OP: Really? Oh, look at that guy's fastball. I didn't know they had cyborgs that could throw 94 mph fastballs.

A1: We are far superior to you humans in every ...

OP: Is there popcorn in space?

A2: Of course.

OP: Can I have some? I've always wanted to try space popcorn.

A1: But you didn't know there was popcorn in space.

OP: Do you have Styrofoam on your planet?

A2: Yeah.

OP: When you ship it, what do you pack it in?

A1: Look, we need to know what you know, not the other way around. Now where is the mission control center on your planet?

OP: I don't know. Hey, how come a psychic never wins the lottery?

A2: What's a lottery?

OP: Are you from Mars?

A2: Do we look like we're from Mars?

OP: No, you don't have antennae and you don't look like the Great Gazoo.

A1: Enough!

OP: Hey, why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?


OP: I knew I shouldn't be drinking dishwashing liquid.

A1: See? We should have abducted Papelbon.

A2: He's one of our plants, remember?

A1: Oh yeah. Well this specimen is useless. Put him back in his original shell. If this is a typical human he'll be more use to us on Earth instead of here. Then we'll be able to invade this planet like a hot knife though space butter.

OP: Oh good, I can pitch the seventh inning!

A2: What do we do with the super-cyborg who's dominating this competition we secretly invaded?

A1: Put him in that smallish character in white who wears number 1 ... Everth Cabrera. Perhaps the lower numbers are indicative of a higher intellect. I have a good feeling we can get some real information from him.

"The humans don't suspect a thing. They're too busy throwing rocks and garbage at this Rodriguez person."

With the kind of season the Mets are having, we either have to laugh or cry... so thank you for making us laugh!
