"I'm from planet XQJ, from the Zappa Galaxy. Not far from Moon Unit; that's the galaxy next door. I'm here to promote the spirit of giving during this holiday season, but all year round, really. As we like to say on my planet, Feliz Kwanzhanukkah!"

"My nose is made from a special Vulcan metal. It used to be the drain in my mother's basement, back in the galaxy. It's smelling a little odorous, so I'm looking for a new one. Checking the Craigslist, you know."
"I'm here for exactly four and a half earth days. I stay at a Motel 6 off the beltline. It's very comfortable. They don't have a checkout time, which is convenient for re, re, re, re-charging my batteries. Mostly I hang out at the malls. East Towne Mall. West Towne Mall. South Towne Mall. Other malls. There I have been known to be photographed with children, but they must be on ladder. I am not capable of sitting down. Children on scaffolding, but no small children. Can't fit in the frame. We are working on lens distortion capacity for my next visit."
