I saw you do that Ted I was just telling the list about it. Forgot to
mention the sans lens shade.
Me I feel I'm more of a Mr. Magoo than you
And Tyler too.

I have a big bruise on my arm right now from having walked into a doorjamb.
It's turned a green color I think.

Maybe its an inner ear thing.
Probably when they beamed me up they didn't put the inner ears back right.
Or I got caught in THEIR doorjamb of the airlock.

Just because they're Aliens doesn't mean they know everything.
