ByA.J. Schaar

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
"Perhaps today we learn the answer to one of humanity's biggest and most universally, yes, if I may say so, a UNIVERSALLY shared question: ARE WE ALONE?" Fascist dictator, Benito Mussolini, got his hands on a flying saucer after it crash landed on June 13, 1933. Together, Mussolini and the Pope (Pius XI, first Sovereign of Vatican City), must keep this alien intelligence top secret from the world, at all costs... OGGETTO METALLICO is a KNOCKOUT OF THE PARK in more ways than one... A SMASHING NEW COMEDY; the JOKE'S ON US... THE POPE: My God, look at yourselves! Look at what we have become! The alien wasn’t our problem. For millennia, the aliens have never been our problem... Our problem is recognizing every being’s inalienable right to Peace and Dignity! Perhaps, millennia from now, when we master our understanding of this, we will be civilized enough to become free citizens, not of nations, or even of Earth, but free citizens of the Universe! (Beat.) MUSSOLINI: What you just said should be quoted somewhere. THE POPE: Thank you. REDACTED: But it won’t be quoted somewhere, or anywhere else. And that goes for all of you. REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED PEDRO: I wish you good luck. REDACTED BEAUTIFUL WOMAN: But this man is dead? And he was flying? Like, elevating? REDACTED PETTYBONE: My wife throws things all the time... REDACTED HARVEY: Say more about this piano-playing chicken... UNINTELLIGIBLE Lookit: we may move on with our lives, if we can, but we can never tell another soul on Earth about THIS. Ever. The only thing you can ever say you saw here was an oggetto metallico. (Echoes) oggetto metallico, a metal object, possibly a meteor... REDACTED MUSSOLINI: I will have you SHOT.
