“I shall be pleased to demonstrate,” replied the leader of the moon group, and he called forth a voluptuous moon beauty with three heads. They then engaged their tentacles for a few moments, and almost at once a small pouch began to form on the female’s back; it grew, and within little more than a minute it opened up very much like a blooming flower, and a small moon child dropped out, as fully developed as the adults but much smaller, and began scampering about the room.
Once the Earth scientists had recovered from this unexpected experience they attempted to explain how procreation differs in our world. The Moonians insisted upon being shown, and after unsuccessful attempts to dissuade them, the chief scientist of the expedition finally agreed. Choosing a comely scientific aide from the group, he took her to a cot in the corner of the room and there proceeded to make love to her in a manner to which we here on Earth are more accustomed.
The Moonians examined the couple from every angle, and when they were finished, their leader said, “That was certainly unusual and, I must say, interesting, but where is the baby – or was the demonstration a failure?”
“It is difficult to say,” replied the Earth scientist. “We cannot tell at once. But if the contact was successful, then the baby will arrive in approximately nine months.”
“Nine months!” exclaimed the Moonian. “Amazing! But tell us then, doctor, if the Earth child will not be born for nine months, why were you in such a hurry there at the end?”
Enough for today.
