Following the Crowd
The charismatic leader called for volunteers and a whole host of willing followers raised their hand to be counted.
But it was not clear what they were volunteering for, as evidenced by the mumbling that rumbled from the crowd, “What are we raising our hands for?”, “Did you hear the first part of the call?”, “I’m not sure…I just don’t want to be left behind.”
“Round them all up and take them to the holding cell,” the speaker proclaimed to his armed guards with a sinister smile, “our alien guests will be pleased with the variety of our menu!”
