    I’d enslave the green, bald people and put them to work in the pants mines.

    Assuming all artificial planets are as depicted in this ad, I would jump around the surface of the planet creating inane statements such as “First!”, “LOL WUT” and “OMGWTFBBQ”.

  3. Benj Edwards Says:

    I would do that too, Anachostic.

    I’d also find more clothing, if possible. It’s cold out in space.
