A short, but efficiently told story, right to the point, Deborah! The style reminds me a bit of Richard Matheson's short stories, which also often use not a lot of unnecessary descriptions, but keep the text flowing and make a great point, plus it's entertaining. Well written!

"You can't force us to enjoy ourselves." - Well put there. Cool stuff!

Great story. Nice twist:  we entertain ourselves with reality shows where people fight, bicker, and plot against each other; the aliens entertain themselves with people playing happy cultural roles.

at first you had me thinking Truman Show, then it sort of turned into dystopian society but with aliens. if you haven't seen the jim carrey movie the Truman Show, watch it, it's a great movie

Liked the haiku brevity.  "Old Langs Syne" ...thought it was (maybe is) an alternative spelling, perhaps the "y" distracted me.  A compelling story.

You mean we celebrate for someone's sick entertainment? How is that even entertaining?
