So, let’s see if I can figure this out here. In the first one, we’re outside. Nice day, looks pretty, only… is that a glow? Like a space ship? Coming from over there on the right?
Oh, okay, now we’re looking at a brighter glow. I bet the hatch is open. Can you imagine, seeing those aliens, all bright green and freaky? Bet they’ve got those great big eyes and long fingers. Brrr, I’d hate to see them running at me on a summer evening.
Number three, hmm. That’s got to be a rocket ship, right? The aliens leaving? Probably after harvesting all our water or eating our children or something? Could be that’s why all the trees are dry and dying. And those birds, I can’t be sure, but they really look like scavengers about to go in for the kill.
And now, here we are, the last panel. Glistening grey goo dripping from the trees as they’re devoured by waves of nanites. The ground’s all gone, turned into a flowing silver sea, and the trees are beginning to lean to the ground. Will the crash or just melt away? In a few minutes, our home planet will be reduced to nothing more than living steel, and the very things that made us human will soon vanish, forever lost, forever lost.
Pretty dark shirt, if you take a close look at what’s actually going on.
Wear this shirt: while offering your guests pepper and salt.
Don’t wear this shirt: if you’re in Miami. Locals will just stare and ask what those other three spaces are all about.
This shirt tells the world: “It was a very good year.”
We call this color: Pocket-Sized Brown Calendar
