Ford? Really, how intelligent could these overlords be? Well, they must at least be a little clumsy. I mean, a message in the form of a corn maize, er, maze? How corny!
Elsewhere, otherworldly aliens have attacked Peru with a biological weapon in the guise of a meteorite (I was not fooled). The missile left a steaming crater 100 feet across; the steam carried an odor that sickened many local villagers, including officials who were dispatched to investigate the scene. (Some also may have seen the face of the Virgin Mary in the crater, but this is not confirmed.)
In response to this unwarranted attack on the West, President Bush has announced a counterattack plan to eliminate the aliens' WMD capabilities. You didn't think that Mars mission he announced a couple years ago was just for fun, did you? It's an invasion, man. I'm talking Martian regime change.
I personally think Bush should take a non-military, as in political, approach to this, with anti-alien legislation. It wouldn't be his first crack at it.
