I really am disappointed.
I had hoped for at least Marvin the Martian, or possibly even a Ferengi, but what do I get?
Alien life has been discovered, or at least, speculated to have been discovered. Little red microbes landed with a comet in India in 2001, surprisingly, nothing has been heard from them since. Their lack of DNA may have something to do with their inability to take over the world. However, I haughtily say that lack of DNA is no excuse for laziness when it comes to global domination.
They are reproducing plentifully, so unless they plan to suppress humans with their dazzling multitudes, I think our new aliens are the hippie rejects of the alien community, who have just come to earth to frolic, reproduce, and hand out daisies to the military. They even hitchhiked here on a comet, I mean, what is more hippie-like than hitchhiking? Slackers.
Pretty disappointing for the first confirmed evidence of alien life. I certainly hope it's a trojan horse, wherein the easygoing microbes lay in wait for the arrival of their Hitler-esque amoeba brethren.
Because cloudy red water doesn't inspire me to betray my planet in conquest of the universe. And I already have my Ming the Merciless dress ready. So I guess I'll just wait.
