    The Council of Aliens then realized that it was ultimately they who had been sad, silly, and stupid, but were proud that they had given the curse their ancestors had placed upon them onto the humans. They just hoped that one day the humans would not retaliate by cursing them with something far worse than Rat. Justin Bieber.

    Did they intend it as a glaring example of our sadness, silliness and stupidity?

    I call this council of humans to order, all for sending Justin Bieber to the aliens to “thank” them for Rat say aye.

    Technically, they are not Alena if they are on their home planet.

    Rat does have the interesting ability to make a pencil stick to the side of his head rather than putting it behind his ear.

    If Rat is humanity’s savior, we’re all screwed.

    Don’t you normally rest a pencil on the top of your ear not the bottom?

    Another example of how things go horribly wrong when the “elite” try to save the sad, the silly, and the stupid from themselves.(drops mic and walks away)

    Talk about narcissism. Rat is right about one thing though; we are a sad, silly and stupid race. You just got to watch the news every day to realize that.

    Thanks, Alien council, we are so much better off, some of us are now happy, serious and smart. Some of the other commentators here don’t appreciate your thoughtfulness, but I do.

    Now don’t go insulting Egrayj by implying that he can’t sing better than Justin Bieber. A tone deaf 5 year old sings better than Justin Bieber.
