Don't worry, my mate Ogilvy, (an astronomer), assures me that we're in no danger. He is convinced that there can be no living thing on that remote, forbidding planet.

Nah nothing to worry about at all, its the three egged thingies striding across your neighbours garden fence you need to worry about.

Typical, jumped on and lapooned for a making a small typo, oh to 'L' with it.

Anyway your all EGGsagerating about the whole thing, and not to mention because of the meteor that all of the communications were scrambled, the waste cannisters were stolen or at least poached, and those Martians can be really hard boiled nuts at times.
