Guys, meet Galaxy Entertainment super-producer Gerald O. Davidoff—God for short—whose work on planet Earth everyone is of course intimately familiar with. God, say hi to the guys.
*pause for cacophonous applause*
What an immense pleasure it is to have you here, back where it all began! But I understand that you’re a very busy man—and your visits, I’m aware, are getting rarer by the day—so I’ll keep this quick, the better to let you get right back to business. I just have to ask: what’s the plan, man?
I’m no great creator, of course, but all this anger and violence and hunger and hatred is getting to be a bit much. The long and short of what we’re all wondering is... what gives, God?
As you all know, I have a strong attachment to this particular world. It was my very first planet and without it I would never have become part of the Galaxy Entertainment family. But no-one can deny that its programming has fallen off quite a bit in the last few seasons, and while I, more than anyone, appreciate the quality shows that have been produced there in the past, I also need to recognise that the storylines have become too bizarre, the cast to unlikeable to sustain the ratings we have come to expect. I think we can all agree that this planet ‘jumped the shark’ a long time ago. Plus, the resources spent on this single world could be used to develop several planetainments in less expensive solar systems.
As a result of these considerations, I regrettably feel that the time has come to cancel Earth.
