So, what goes around comes around. Years ago there was a trend for tubs of slime and ‘goo aliens’ and it seems their time has come again!
Kids are going crazy for them and it takes us back to when we were younger and the popular question of:
Can these things have babies or what?
There was always a friend of a friend who managed to get them to reproduce with tales of leaving them in the dark or cold for a few days and the miraculous happened. Nobody ever actually witnessed it though.
So here’s the result of all the rumoured methods of Alien conception.
Putting them in the fridge:
Rumour has it, Aliens need a cold environment to make the magic happen, so where better than 24 hours in a fridge?
After the 24 hours was up the egg had some condensation in it so had it worked?
No, the same 2 aliens were wrapped in the purple goo. They were just a bit cold.
In the dark without any goo.
Theory behind this one, no goo, more contact, more babies. Plus being in the dark seemed a popular rumour.
So they were placed in the drawer if a filing cabinet and left to get on with it.
Unfortunately though, on opening it a few hours later, they either don’t like each other or that method doesn’t work.
Rubbing them together.
So, back to the drawing board. The most popular methods hadn’t worked so a quick google search for more options was the next step:
A forum post from ‘The Student Room’ suggested rubbing them together.
Well it was worth a try as that’s pretty much what humans do right?
So they got down to it in the shell and goo.
Once done they were wrapped up in there goo blanket for a post love cuddle.
Next morning they were unwrapped to see if we had a baby, but nothing!
(DISCLAIMER: IN NO WAY DO WE ADVISE YOU TRY THIS METHOD AT HOME, IN FACT, WE ACTIVELY ADVISE YOU STAY WELL AWAY FROM IT. IF THE AUTHOR HAD BEEN SMART ENOUGH TO READ THE PACKAGING, HE’D HAVE KNOWN THAT. CHEERS.)
Well, the final option. Warmth, warmth is what they must need. Like being under a toasty duvet and making love to create space babies.
Only place for that, the microwave! So in they go:
There was potential for explosions, fire, bad smells, but the button was pressed in the name of science.
Result: A very warm smelly mess of an egg. Too hot to dig into straight away.
5 minutes later, the goo was slowly removed. Surely this had to have worked! Erm, no.
Well, if nothing else, the playground rumours had been dispelled. There was no way on earth (or the universe) the goo Aliens could have goo babies. Disappointing but conclusive. Unless of course there was a method which was missed!
