Early one Sunday morning, two aliens land in Detroit next to an old gas
station. The aliens waddle out of their spaceship and look around. They
approach the old gas pump cautiously. The first one says "Earthling, take
me to your leader!"
He gets no response. The first alien looks at his buddy then addresses the
pump again. "Earthling, I said take me to your leader!"
Still no response. The first alien turns to the second and says "If this
Earthling doesn't show me some respect I'm going to blast him!" The second
alien replies "OK, but I'm going to stand on the next block." The first
alien looks a little puzzled, but waits for the other to waddle to the next
block. He then addresses the pump a third time. "Earthling, for the last
time, take me to your leader!"
No response. The alien pulls out his ray-gun and shoots the pump. Ka-BOOM!
The surprised alien gets back up, dusts himself off, and waddles down the
block to his buddy. He says "If you knew that was going to happen, why
didn't you warn me?" The second replies "I didn't know what was going to
happen, but I'm not going to mess with anyone whose thing can hang to the
ground, wrap around his body twice, and still stick in his ear!"
