I have always been a fan of The Twilight Zone, but one of my personal favorites has to be “To serve man”. If you haven’t seen it you really should, it’s really cool. The aliens come down and make every effort to help humanity, and share their technology. It takes a short time, but even the most skeptical humans finally come to be believers and accept the charity of the celestial visitors. Soon people are offloading Earth and going on vacation to the alien world. However, a linguist starts to take the time to decipher the written language of the alien visitors only to find out that their book “To serve man” is not at all a how to guide on how to help mankind, it is indeed a cookbook. Bummer.

You have to admit, it is pretty ingenious to get your food to volunteer to become the nights cuisine. It sure would save a lot of trouble for hunters.
