Monsters vs Aliens
Welcome to Monsters Versus Aliens
Frankly, they've all been given a bad rap for allegedly scaring people half to death, chilling them to the bone, or making folk's hair stand on end.
In an effort to educate people about the mirthful merits of these misrepresented, misbegotten mythical creatures, the big screen has finally shed some light on the difference between "monsters" and "aliens" with the help of mankind of course.

MONSTERS VS ALIENS
God-fearing grunts on a planet called "Earth" normally don't take too kindly to anything strange or surreal be they "monsters" (big beasts hiding beneath beds) or "aliens" (from outer space ...where else would they live pray tell).
But, "Dreamworks", (a rather fine movie-making company), has come out with a marvellous 3-D animation film called Monsters vs Aliens.
Let's face, it just makes sense to create a funky film that will take everyone's mind off the fact that the real world is going to heck in handbasket, not to mention losing their shirt, their job, and their home, while billion-dollar bail-outs are going to save gargantuan greedy globe-trotting gremlins.
Who could resist seeing a breath-taking battle to beat all battles, between "monsters" and "aliens" with help of a handful of hapless homo sapiens?
And frankly, who would think that the planet could be saved by a daring defender dream team comprised of merry-making monsters named, "The Missing Link", "Ginormica", "B.O.B.", "Insectosaurus", and "Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D."?

WHAT IS AN ALIEN?
For those who haven't a clue about critters called "aliens", we offer a brief definition.
An alien is a non-plussed, non-resident non-entity, a sorry-looking space cadet, or more likely an obnoxious, opinionated, oomph-impaired if not outlandish oggler.
On the other hand, aliens can also be frightfully fun-challenged foreigners or green, glow-in-the-dark ghouls who do not owe allegience to bald-eagles, the stars and stripes, or Yankee Doodle for that matter.
And finally, to conclude this pithy piece of preposterous prose, perhaps someone can tell me why it is that aliens are always colored green?

WHAT IS A MONSTER?
For those who have never heard of a "monster", here is a brief definition.
A monster is member of a mythical, misbegotten, misshapen, misanthropic, merry-impaired species (possessing both human and animal parts like the Bonegrudging beast above) that usually inhabits dark if not inhospitable places, (more often than not beneath the bed of mirthless munchkins).
See homo sapiens for more details.

WHAT IS A HOMO SAPIEN?
Homo sapien is a member of mankind, the supposedly rational, wise, intelligent species that can twiddle his/her thumbs, build sandcastles in the air, smile for the camera, and wait at the bus station for his/her train to come in ...because [s]he's got a mind of his/her own thank you very much.
Happy-challenged Halloween-impaird Homo-sapiens often devote a good deal of time making excuses to engage in "monster mashing" on October 31st, (provided of course they've got a band of brave buddies with big bazookas willing to do battle with bad-breath, bellicose beasts).

A Word Or Two About Aliens From Outer Space
"The only thing that scares me more than space aliens is the idea that there aren't any space aliens. We can't be the best that creation has to offer. I pray we're not all there is. If so, we're in big trouble."
-- Ellen DeGeneres --
