I Tried To Make Gooey Aliens Have Babies And This Is What Happened

Turns out everyone at your primary school was RIGHT (sort of).

If you went to a British primary school you probably believed that these gooey aliens could have babies:

No matter where you school was in the country, this rumour seemed to be on every playground.

No matter where you school was in the country, this rumour seemed to be on every playground.

I decided to do some public service for the nation and find out exactly *why* this was such a huge rumour.

I remember spending hours trying to get them gooey aliens to have babies 😂😂

Q: did anyone ever manage to get them gooey egg aliens to have babies????

Method 1: Wrap your alien in gunge and then put them in the fridge:

Everyone at school knew someone who's cousin made them have babies this way.

I put it in the fridge and waited...

Safely incubating next to the spreads.

I returned after my lunch (sad sandwich from Pret) and much to my disappointment, there were absolutely ZERO alien babies.

What a shame.

What a shame.

Method 2: The second method involves rubbing two aliens together, and putting them in the egg so they can ~reproduce~, like so:

I found out about this method after watching some very unconvincing YouTube videos.

After leaving them in the egg in the fridge I returned, once again confronted by crushing disappointment:

No babies here. NONE AT ALL.

No babies here. NONE AT ALL.

So, where did this rumour come from then? Well, it turns out that there is one brand of gooey alien that comes ALREADY PREGNANT.

I bought a random selection of aliens online and this just happened to be one of them.

Rather alarmingly, they come with this warning:

"Note: Some aliens may birth through their backs". Horror.

"Note: Some aliens may birth through their backs". Horror.

This alien was DEFINITELY bigger than the other ones.

I turned it over and found the weird "back birth hole".

LO AND BEHOLD, THERE WAS A BABY INSIDE!!

Pretty sure that's exactly how humans give birth.

OMG. Mystery. Solved.

My beautiful alien child.
