Healthy green deficit-neutral Martian humor

The only thing more humorous than White House Budget Director David Stockman’s Peter Orszag’s professional calculation that President Obama’s proposed health care overhaul is “deficit neutral
over the first decade” is a Martian joke that appears in a recent article published on the website of the American Thinker:
Martian #1:  We must destroy the Earthlings. But how?

Martian #2:  Why not let man-made global warming do it for us?

Martian #1:  Are you kidding? We do not have 100,000 years.

Martian #2:  Why not just wait for Earthlings to pass their Cap and Trade Climate Bills?

Martian #1:  Great idea! That way the energies of the planet remain preserved while the Earthlings quickly tax themselves to death.

Martian #2:  I think it would be a win-win for us.

Martian #1:  I agree. Hey, you want to watch a movie? I have my favorite sci-fi DVD with me, An Inconvenient Truth, starring Al Gore.

Martian #2:  I cannot right now. I have plans to beam down to the United States because I am in need of surgery. You know it is common knowledge that America provides the best medical care in the galaxy.

Martian #1:  But we Martians have good universal healthcare.

Martian #2:  Yeah, but good luck. I am presently on an eighty-year waiting list.

Martian #1:  But you do not have any Earthling American dollars to pay for surgery!

Martian #2:  That's not a problem. I don't need any. I'm an alien.
