A flying saucer landed at a gas station on a lonely country road. The two space aliens inside seemed completely unconcerned about detection in fact, the letters "UFO" were emblazoned in big, bold letters on one side of their shiny craft.

As the station owner stood and gawked in silence, paralyzed with shock, his young attendant nonchalantly filled up the tank and waved to the two aliens as they took off.

"Do you realize what just happened?" the station owner finally uttered.

"Yeah," said the attendant. "So?"

"Didn't you see the space aliens in that vehicle?!"

"Yeah," repeated the attendant, "So?"

"Didn't you see the letters 'UFO' on the side of that vehicle?!"

"Yeah," repeated the attendant, "So?"

"Don't you know what 'UFO' means?!"

The attendant rolled his eyes. "Good grief, boss! I've been working here for five years. Of course I know what 'UFO' means. 'Unleaded Fuel Only.'"
