For his entire working life, a dedicated and hardworking Astro-physicist tried in all earnest to find the existence of aliens, other beings somewhere in the universe.
Finally, after no less than 67 years of constant effort, and shortly before he was due to retire, he receives a response from a planet 30 billion light years away.
“What is your planet like?”, asked the extraterrestrial from the other side of the Galaxy.
“Well, it is 12,756 Kilometers in diameter, is 93,000,000 miles from the nearest star, our sun, has an average temperature of 72 degrees F. We breathe oxygen, live about 75 years, and have both men and women”, answered the astro-physicist.
“Do you get along with the women on your planet?” the extraterrestrial asked slowly.
Puzzled by the question, but not wanting to insult the female astro-physicists in the room, he answered “Why yes. We get along quite well here”.
On hearing this, the extraterrestrial perked up “Can we send you ours?”
