Those darn damned kids: they’ve learned to blend in and look like any ol’ ordinary Earth kids, all the better to zap our brains and stuff.
Like most alien invaders, the kids don’t ever seem to get around to having a good reason to want to take over the planet… or to destroy it. Aren’t they stuck here too? Or are their ET mommies and daddies going to come get them someday?
You know, I used to think I was gonna get rescued from Earth by my real parents from outer space. I’m still waiting.
