As for the story itself, it was entitled ‘The Dancing Fool.’ Like so many stories it was about a tragic failure to communicate. Here was the plot: A flying saucer creature named Zog arrived on earth to explain how wars could be prevented and cancer could be cured. He brought the information from Margo, a planet where the natives conversed by means of farts and tapdancing. Zog landed at night in Connecticut. He had no sooner touched down than he saw a house on fire. He rushed into the house farting and tapdancing, warning the people about the terrible danger they were in. The head of the house brained Zog with a golfclub.
