9-11-08 The Yip Yips Conquer the Planet Earth

Posted by Sean on September 11, 2008

Well, now that the Large Hadron Collider has emptied the Earth of human life [1], our precious planet lays open to colonization. That’s right! We are powerless to repel the alien conquest!

LOOK! UP IN THE SKIES! THEY’RE HERE!

But wait a minute. If there’s no one left on Earth, then… who’s calling that phone!

(And this post is too appropriate for 9-11! It’s got the destruction of the United States by a foreign power, an invasion by alien hordes, da woiks!)

[1] To be fair, the LHC only fired one stream of particles yesterday. There were no particle collisions in that test. Still, I got a fifty sez nothing happens when they ramp up to the real thing.
