Springfield, MO—MSU students received a message from aliens from the Altair solar system last night while hanging out at the giant space discs located at Grand and National Street. According to reports, the students were relaxing on what they considered works of art when they reportedly received thirteen 71 x 71 pixel images that included the molecular formula for ethanol, the kanji characters for “kanpai!” (cheers!), and the English word “toast.”
Said one student Hans Uberlick, “I really think the aliens were drunk texting us. I’m no expert but the images we received on our cell phones via the cool satellite art were pretty descriptive and well…unrestrained.”
The students said the binary messages they decoded from their intergalactic texts showed aliens chugging beers, doing keg stands and playing beer-pong. If these reports are accurate, the human race may have more in common than previously known.
Professor Neder Freihalts speculated, “Once a genuine extraterrestrial signal of some kind has been detected, the recipient must then be able to puzzle out the meaning of the alien messages he receives. Clearly, these students unveiled that aliens enjoy a ‘party’ atmosphere. Which is good news for all of the universe.”
The original structures on the lawn – that received and transmitted the alien messages – had previously been considered hideous and strange by the student population. Now, dozens of students can be seen visiting the lawn art in hopes of receiving a TWI from outer space.
