But, we're tender and juicy this way --
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?

maybe we're like granny smith apples, they make the best pies, just add a bit of sugar to sweeten it up. Crisp, tart and oh so yummy!

Heh - everyone's going with the Damon Knight punchline "To Serve Man".

But there's an equally plausible more somber direction here - that we're still struggling with basics and need to figure out certain levels of racial maturity.

The third humorous take is that we ate some alien food out of Area 51 ... and we're a bit green in the restroom...
