first clams?
2002-02-19 01:11:31 PM  
Don't tell them we're here!

They'll come and enslave us all!
2002-02-19 01:12:15 PM  
Aren't there consequences for false 911 calls?
2002-02-19 01:13:02 PM  
Clams from outerspace?!?!?
Celestial Seafood!!!
2002-02-19 01:14:34 PM  
From the Vega constellation eh? Isn't that where the transmission came from in that Contact movie as well?
2002-02-19 01:15:18 PM  
Didn't we already cover the "Vega" thing in Contact?
2002-02-19 01:16:12 PM  
Boy is the female "pilot beacon" going to be pissed when she gets here and there's no emergency. Start digging those bunkers folks, you're gonna need 'em.
2002-02-19 01:17:19 PM  
First of all, Vega is a star, not a constellation. It's also a car, but if you are recieving messages from the trunk of your car, it's probably a different kind of alien.
2002-02-19 01:17:38 PM  

I bring you LOVE!

Too late!

They're here!

Wait a minute... 11 hours to Vega?
2002-02-19 01:18:19 PM  
yeah, right. its just some aussi in a klingon costume living in his parents basement and jerking off to Jodi Foster.
2002-02-19 01:19:20 PM  
dammit, I aways screw up the "ie"/"ei" thing. English sucks.
2002-02-19 01:19:23 PM  
mmmmmm...FETI cheese.......
2002-02-19 01:19:28 PM  
If Miss Pilot looks like Jodie Foster, we're all screwed.
2002-02-19 01:20:19 PM  
So how many Boobies and Weeners do these aliens got to show us in one of our NSFW threads?
Hmmm ?
2002-02-19 01:20:19 PM  
Never seen the "unlikly" tag.
2002-02-19 01:21:31 PM  
Yeah, people talk to aliens. Just like the people that say they talk to Jesus or ghosts.
2002-02-19 01:22:53 PM  
Frankee-Frank-Frank: it's new as of yesterday, along with the "dumbass" tag. New toys.
2002-02-19 01:22:56 PM  
SETI isn't realy concerned with UFOs are they? I thought that they just listened to space.
2002-02-19 01:23:40 PM  
Well, my brilliant earthling subjects, aren't I, the Feared Alien Leader, Xenu, talking to you now? Feel blessed that I consider you worthy.


Fearless Intergalactic Leader
2002-02-19 01:24:15 PM  
People never spoke to the aliens. The title clearly says clams did.
2002-02-19 01:25:16 PM  
Man is Vegalight, the pilot beacon, going to be pissed when she gets here and learns it was a fake distress call. She probably just destroy the earth, for bothering her.

Thanks FETI.

BTW, isn't Feti some Italian food or something?
2002-02-19 01:25:31 PM  
I always knew clams would be the 1st to make contact, but AUSTRALIAN clams?!?
*pours himself a cold Clamato, mmmmm.....clammy*
2002-02-19 01:25:34 PM  
In a related story, some snails form Colorado claim to seen Bigfoot.
2002-02-19 01:26:35 PM  
People talk to Jesus all the time. He just doesn't talk back.
2002-02-19 01:26:39 PM  

It says "contact." It doesn't say they had tea and crumptes while they discussed world affairs.

Didn't they read the fairy tail about the planet that cried wolf? Now the aliens will never help us!
2002-02-19 01:27:18 PM  
From Vega...hmmm... so the alien is Jodi Foster's dad?
2002-02-19 01:27:22 PM  
FETA. Everyone is thinking of feta cheese. Not FETI, but close.
2002-02-19 01:28:24 PM  
Wow, and only 5½ light hours away!

Unlikely is right.

PETA cheese, what?
2002-02-19 01:31:44 PM  
11 hours to Vega? My ship can get there in less than nine parsecs. Fools.
2002-02-19 01:32:31 PM  
We're here to serve man

Anyone else notice that google can't find _any_ info on FETI?

How is this FARKworthy?
2002-02-19 01:37:53 PM  
Let's hope they are here to serve man:

Isn't vegalight the diet version of Vegimite?.... some aussies should know, if I could figure out how to post this upside down so they could read it.
2002-02-19 01:44:06 PM  
Australian group clams! Those are delicious.
2002-02-19 01:48:31 PM  
What utter nonsense! Any self-respecting space kook knows that the nearest intelligent aliens are in a system in the Plieades.

Now excuse me while I go don my metal cap that deflects covert government electomagnetic beams.
2002-02-19 01:49:13 PM  
yeah, that sounds about right....

Did somebody say Vega?
2002-02-19 01:53:39 PM  
"Representatives from the Australia-based Finding E.T. International (FETI), say they received the message on February 2, just 11 hours after sending a "bluff call for help" into space."

The what? Finding E.T. International? HELLO E.T. is a movie character....

wait a min... this is a hoax group isn't it. mocking SETI's name, using E.T., claiming to receive a response in 11 hours... lol damn those aussies are jerking everyones chain. thats funny
2002-02-19 01:53:41 PM  
Aliens from other planets, whatever. Fairy tales and nonsense. Now where did I put my Bible....
2002-02-19 01:54:36 PM  
But they was here with Elvis, and they did steals me beers.

Vega, you say?
2002-02-19 02:08:43 PM  
Don't blame me, I voted for Kotos!
2002-02-19 02:10:46 PM  

you just don't get it!
2002-02-19 02:10:53 PM  
Don't worry. If the alien chick comes to America and gives us any shiat, we'll just throw her in prison for not having a visa. If she goes to Australia, they'll ship her off to some little Pacific island and detain her. No worries, mate.
