I've tried to strike up a conversation with humans so many times, but they don't want to talk to me for some reason. I guess they're just antisocial. It always happens the same way. I invite them back to the interstellar welcome pod, but no sooner do I present the prong of friendly greeting to their rear communication port, than they freak out and run away from the flying saucer.
What's the deal, Earth people? Do you think you're too "cool" to talk to an alien, just because we're different? I bet it's because we don't have noses or ears, is that it? Seriously, humanity, you always make me *so* self-conscious. I wish you'd stop being so stuck-up all the time and at least make the effort at a few words of small talk.
