What If... meme - The Winners!


A great time was had by all (I think) sending messages to an alien from space who had contacted Earth. Thirty-five people had something to say to our curious alien!

Carver, Travis, Gene Bach and Luke Wiley cautioned our alien from coming to our planet, that he might want to go elsewhere.

Queen-Size funny bone, Suzie and Ivanhoe asked if our alien would take them along when he/she goes back to his/her planet.

Bond and JC each had the same idea inviting our alien for Italian food.

Mags wondered if our alien would like her to cook for him or if there were any marriageable men on his planet.

Many were very funny... (Sandy, Jeff B, WillThink4Wine, Jay Simser, Colin Campbell, Mags, Mo and Marilyn)

Some (zoya, Sandy, lv2scpbk, Jay Simser, On a limb with Claudia, and Kimmie) were so sincere in their hopes that the alien would help save our planet politically and environmentally. Jay Simser even wrote a poem.

Well it's time to announce the winners:

First Place goes to Rich who told our alien:

We are a flawed but friendly species. We are both curious and adventurous. If you come here you will be welcomed by some and feared by others. Come anyway.

Second Place goes to Marilyn who begged our alien:

Take our leaders...please!

Third Place goes to Kimmie who asked:

Please bring NY Style Cheesecake when you come. Plain, no toppings. By the you have someone who would make a good American President that we could vote for?" If so, bring them also.

Congratulations to the winners! Thank you for participating!

Please feel free to copy and resize your winner's badge and paste it in your side bar. If you have any trouble doing that, let me know and I'll resize it for you. If you do put it in your side bar, let me know so I can visit you to see it.

Also all participants can have the badge below to remember our meme:

Okay, everybody, thanks again! I had as much fun as you did. I'll think of a new "What if..." meme and I hope you'll play again.

If you want to use this meme and or the badge just feel free and link back to me. Thanks.

This was a fun one Mary. "Take our leaders please" cracks me up. Not a bad idea.
