Imagine if E.T. finally phoned home and was hungry. If you had to select one dish to serve to intelligent extraterrestrial beings, what would you choose to serve them and why would you choose that dish? Underscore INTELLIGENT beings from another planet and galaxy who have similar biological dietary needs as us humans, yet with the presumption that they think on a much a higher level than we do.
THE MILKY WAY STORY
Having some fun with this, imagine you’re in The Mars Bar & Grill on a planet in a galaxy far, far away. The music is weird, yet great. The beings even weirder looking, yet attractive at the same time. It’s like you want to run out of that joint scared out of your wits, yet you want every single person in there to come to your house for the most epic post-pub Galaxian-themed afterparty.
You go to the ETATM (Extraterrestrial Automated Teller Machine) to pull out some celestial cash, when this hot purple-fleshed mama with 2 heads, 5 eyes and 7 boobies standing behind you taps on your shoulders with her 23 tentacles and says, “Hey, you’re pretty handsome. What planet are you from?”. To which you reply, “Earth”. She replies (assuming she’s a she), “Oh, I once dated an Earthling. He said his name was “Steve Joxz”. Or something like that. All I remember is he said he owned the most popular computer and mobile phone company on earth. Something with the name of a fruit.
So you sit down with this 2-headed, 5-eyed 7-boobied, 946-tentacled, purple-colored “gal” to chat more, as now you’re really intrigued on her escapade with Steve “Joxz”. This, knowing with the information, digital video and photos you will soon get from her, you’ll become an instant BILLIONAIRE upon your return home to Earth. She then says she’s receiving an interplanetary instant message in her mind from Steve (they don’t have smartphones, it’s all built into their brains, including the visuals). “Hi Steve-O! Hey guess what, baby doll. I’m sitting here chatting with another Earthling!”. Steve asks her, “What’s his name?” To which she asks you, “Honey, what is your name by-the-way?” To which you reply, “Larry”. She then tells Steve, “He says his name is Larry”. Steve barks back, “Is that that EFFIN’ PAGE!!!??? Put him on the line NOW!”
While you’re arguing away with who everyone thought was the “late” Steve Jobs, your new “multi-talented” extraterrestrial companion for the evening orders some interstellar appetizers and cocktails for the two-plus-three of you. In a VERY seductive human-sounding female voice, she requests, “Yes, may I have the Pluto Pizza, along with two Milky Ways on the rocks. #Shiaz’bout (thanks).”
Well, getting to it, If having to select something I LOVE to eat myself, my choice would be none other than authentic Japanese Shoyu Ramen. The same thing I claim on Yelp to be the last meal served to me on this beloved Mother Earth. For me, Japanese Shoyu Ramen embodies the universe of life. Every element, from the land to the sea, to our spiritual well-being, when done right, in perfect harmony. It quenches both hunger and thirst, yet more importantly, Ramen quenches the soul. To which I think an intelligent being higher than us would connect with more than any other dish on this planet.
On top of that, ramen is quick to eat and a complete meal in itself. Again with the presumption that not only are these extraterrestrial beings extremely intelligent, they’re also very busy, with many galaxies to transport beyond their stop on planet Earth.
Of course, the Shoyu Ramen I’d serve them doesn’t necessarily have to be made with pork and/or chicken, as likely an intelligent being would be highly against the slaughter and consumption of another sentient being, and they probably own Whole Foods. lol
As the cosmos has many colors, so does Ramen….
As us humans search out other planets that show signs of life in the form of the existence of water, out of that water breeds life, where with ramen, is the noodles…
MORK CALLING ORSON
However, seriously, it’s all so fascinating! Don’t you think so? I do!
Do you believe in extraterrestrial life? If so, what form do you think they’re in? Have you ever experienced an alien abduction where you were taken aboard a spacecraft or another planet? Ever seen a UFO? A Foo Fighter?
For myself, nope. Nothing. No alien encounter nor UFO. Which I’m kinda’ bummed, as I really want to see for myself that they do exist, as personally, I believe we’re descendants of a higher race that are so much higher than us, throughout our history, we have no concrete proof they do exist. As one ‘Ancient Aliens’ episode historian was commenting about SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence), the day humans make contact and communicate with intelligent life from another planet, it will change our existence as we know it, from religion to science to sociology.
Do aliens such as those known as “greys” have emotions like us humans have? Or are they robotic computers, as many sci-fi films portray them? If given they’re biological, is their DNA far superior to us Earthling humans? If they eat, what is their diet? And if so, do they have a diverse cuisine more advanced than us humans have already developed? What is their lifespan? 24 hours like a fly, or 900 years like Yoda? Would you want to live 900 years? OK, anyhow, you get the point.
Again, the question is, Imagine if E.T. finally phoned home and was hungry. If you had to select one dish to serve to intelligent beings from another planet, what would you choose to serve them and why?
P.S. Ever since I started shaving my head bald (which I LOVE way better than having hair!), I always kinda’ thought I had sort of an alien-shaped skull. Check it out…
Here I caught two “aliens” (actually Diner E caught them)…
