If you have a teen, surely you know of their great hopes and dreams to storm Area 51 this coming September. The meme has taken hold, and I’m afraid I’m going to wake up one morning with a note from my kids saying, Gone to see them aliens. Took some money. Back soon.

While the tongue-in-cheek event “to see them aliens” was recently removed from Facebook — after 2 million freaking people had signed up — there may still be an actual festival held on September 20. And of course your family will all be needing the appropriate alien meme attire.

Or you know, just wear yours at home while watching Men in Black. Probably smarter.

With apologies to Miracle Max, have fun storming the Air Force Base!*

*Do not really storm the Air Force Base. It is hot, it is in the middle of nowhere, it is heavily guarded, and you’re more likely to see aliens walking among us in Times Square on any random weekday.
