Alien Mothership To Open Landing Bay To Maine Trick-or-Treaters

Trick or treaters on the porch“The humans are coming!  The humans are coming!”  These were the excited shouts this Modern Philosopher heard today aboard the Glorkovian Mothership that hovers high above the city of Bangor.

The young Aliens yelling the words were thrilled that Halloween was finally coming to their mighty spacecraft for the first time since the Glorkovians arrived in Maine to seek refuge from the civil war on their home planet.

“I don’t know why we hadn’t thought of this before,” Sub-Commander Q’va, the second in command of the Mothership, explained as we wandered across the massive landing bay, which the Glorkovians intend to fill with candy for their guests.  “We’ve always sent our youngsters down to the planet to collect treats on Halloween, and I guess it took us this long to realize we should reciprocate.  We can fly across galaxies, cure diseases, and live for centuries, but we just don’t have proper manners I guess.”

Mainers and Glorkovians could not possibly get along any better.  This Summer, the Aliens turned a cargo bay into a baseball field just so that Maine’s Little League Champions could play the first ever Little League game in space.

Mainers attended Space Camp aboard this very same vessel, Alien youngsters go to Maine schools, Alien doctors work at Maine hospitals, and the list goes on and on.  This will be first time, however, that our beloved October tradition gets brought up to the Mothership.

“Many of us are planning to dress up as famous humans for Halloween,” Q’va shared excitedly.  “You don’t think anyone would be offended by that, do you?”

I assured her that as long as the kiddos got their candy fix, all would be right in the world.

“We had Stephen King up here for tea,” she name dropped, and just as I was about to feel bad because I hadn’t been offered a beverage, a Food & Beverages Officer appeared with an ice cold Snapple.  “He had some excellent suggestions on how to make this space extra spooky, and we’re hoping to live up to his high level of creepiness.”

I’m not sure what I’m going as for Halloween this year, Modern Philosophers, but I am certain I will be catching one of the shuttle crafts up to the Mothership that night to be a part of the historic event.

AliensIt boggles my mind that Maine is the only state in the Union where Aliens are welcomed as citizens and feel like they can be part of American society.

Maine is a magical place, and this is just another example of that.

I cannot wait for Halloween!

  1. Hopefully New Jersey will follow suit. 🙂

    Perhaps they could go as congressman and open a conversation on alien acceptance. Logic: most of us don’t like politicians and see them as something vaguely parasitic. If we allow them full citizenship rights, why shouldn’t we welcome someone as obviously giving as your Glorkovians?

  3. You gotta love us al… uh… those aliens!

    I can’t believe I missed this last year. It is such a good idea, I hope there is a reprise, a candy re-prize.
