   The alien landed in the middle of the sidewalk.  Immediately a Pavo policeman rushes over to the alien and says, “You can’t park that thing here.  Go find a legal spot.”
   The alien looks up and says, “Take me to your meter.”

Day 5.
   Earl Ray sent this one to us.  He says it really happened in New Elm.
   Wiley B. was a famous New Elm scientist who was thought to be creating replicas of himself in his laboratory in the barn.  This was making the people of New Elm nervous, so they gathered whatever they could and proceeded down the road to confront Wiley B.
   Mary B. had a box of pens.  Ben had a big pile of books and Roy and a few of his farmer friends had heavy sacks of wheat slung over their shoulders.
   When they got to Wiley B.’s barn, they found dozens and dozens of replicas of Wiley B.  The townsfolk set upon them, killing Wiley B.’s creations right and left.  Mary B. poked them to death with her pens.  Ben clobbered them with his books and the farmers were hitting them with the sacks of wheat. 
     In just a few minutes, the folks collapsed in exhaustion, their work done.
     Imagine their dismay when they saw Wiley B. jump into his car.  The farmers tried to heave their bags of wheat toward the car…but the bags broke open harmlessly and Wiley B. made his getaway.  As he drove by, they could hear him yell, “Bics and tomes may break my clones, but grains will never harm me!”
