Yesterday I was swimming along one of my favorite grass beds minding my own business. I picked up a nice, baby shrimp and settled down to enjoy it. About half way through my delicious snack, I saw floating down to me another shrimp. It started dancing in front of my eyes tempting me to eat it. So I did …
The next thing I know I was being pulled up toward the light, shrimp and all still in my mouth. Needless to say, I am freaking out and start resisting the light, but it is too strong and up I go. As I look up into the brightness, there is a huge ship above me and I am being pulled directly under it.
Suddenly, I am scooped up and brought on board the ship, with weird looking aliens staring at me. There is no atmosphere in this place, so I cannot breathe and sit there gasping for air.
One of the aliens restrains me while the other holds this silver box up that makes these bright lights and he keeps pointing it at me. They all seem to be speaking excitedly in some weird language and I am beginning to wonder if this is the end.
Then they lay me down on this thin metal table and stare and jabber some more. Next thing you know, they throw me off the ship. I was loose from their tractor beam and could breathe again. Needless to say, I swam like hell and never looked back.
My fish friends, I am telling all of you this as a warning. It could happen when you least expect it. You could be minding your own business, hanging out in the crowd, and next thing you know WHAM!
You can call me a liar, but it really happened. I have this little tattoo on the inside of my lip here to prove it. See it? I know I certainly learned my lesson! Don’t trust anyone, and if something seems to be too good to be true, it probably is.
I do not know if the dancing shrimp had anything to do with it, but I have eaten lots of them before with no alien encounter. Maybe it was just that one…hey look, a yummy crab! I am kind of hungry. What the … whoooooooooaaaaaaaa!
