Who wants to meet meat?


Terry Bisson is an American sci-fi and fantasy writer. He wrote several books, but the reason I discovered him, is a short humoristic story my brother sent me, a couple of years back.

“Meat” is a conversation between two aliens, discussing the possibilitty of getting in touch with humans.

It is hilarious! (well, to me it is…) Here is a short excerpt, but you can find the whole thing, here.

“Thinking meat! You’re asking me to believe in thinking meat!”

“Yes, thinking meat! Conscious meat! Loving meat. Dreaming meat. The meat is the whole deal!  Are you beginning to get the picture or do I have to start all over?”

“Omigod. You’re serious then. They’re made out of meat.”

“Thank you. Finally. Yes. They are indeed made out of meat. And they’ve been trying to get in touch with us for almost a hundred of their years.”


I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I did… Everytime I read it!

    1. My little brother sent it to me about 10 years ago and I re-read it every now and then… And I laugh! That “Who wants to meet meat?” line cracks me up more than any other… and if someone says something about aliens, it pops to my mind right away!! LOOL Glad you enjoyed it too!! xx
