We'll Send the Foxes

i suggested that when the aliens come to Earth

we should send our foxes to meet them
not as a joke
so much
on our visitors
but because they are closer to being typical creatures of Earth than we are.

"So they'll give the aliens a sense of what they can expect
before they have the greater shock
of meeting us?"
asked the premier.

"Yes, but," I said with a smile.
"What I am really looking forward to
is listening in and hearing
how the foxes
try to describe us."
