When Little Green Men Attack, It’s All-out Laugh Warfare
From the far reaches of outer space they come—inscrutable aliens, malicious invaders, wacky tourists from another planet—to conquer, study, and tickle us. From the battlefields of the Ozarks to the marble halls of the Boston Library, from Central Park to the skies above Washington, on the moon and in the seediest bars of Kansas City— they’re here. But do they really know who they’re up against? Not hardly!
