Tweeten beat Twitter on Friday Friday. It came from our mayor: “Austin, we have liftoff. Our city just sent queso to the moon. My work is here.” And there was a rocket emoji.

The explanation followed in a press release: “Special package from Mayor Steve Adler will land on the moon in April.”

I know what some of you are thinking (hope?). No, our mayor will not move to the moon.

From the announcement: “Mayor Steve Adler revealed today the contents of an official letter to extraterrestrial and future citizens of the solar system that will be laid on the moon about 40 days from today, mid-April. The letter was aboard the SpaceX Falcon rocket launched out of Cape Canaveral, Florida (Thursday) night. “

Yes, our mayor writes letters to aliens and future citizens of the solar system. And he invites them to move here. And he offers free stuff to get them moving here, maybe with your dog. And you thought the football deal was nuts.

“Greetings, aliens!” Adler wrote. “Or Martians. Or space creature. Or future people from Mars. I’m not sure what you prefer to be called, but whatever you are, you are definitely welcome here in Austin, Texas. In fact, the city of Austin was one of those first in the US to officially become a welcoming city and we would like you to move here, or at least visit. “

How about just visiting, unless they include transport technology that would keep them off with MoPac during peak hours ?

QUESO MONDAYS: Matthew Odam’s Austin queso tour

The SpaceX Falcon carries an archive containing millions of documents that lasers were etched into “microscopic form on a radiant nickel nanofiche disk” that will be permanently laid on the moon. This will join other things we have left on the moon.

The latest is a project of the Arch Mission Foundation, whose goal is that the message says “to archive all human knowledge permanently in space.” It is called the “Billion Years Archive” and contains 25,000 books, various datasets and a full copy of the English language the version of Wikipedia, which is good because it will allow people to live elsewhe again refer to it when they cannot remember if a celebrity long ago lived or died.

The Arch Mission people invited what is called “a limited number of celebrities, influencers, and dignitaries to make a contribution to the Lunar Library.” Our mayors are apparently a celebrity, influenza, or dignitary. He says his letter contains “a copy of the original, authentic and never-published Kerbey Queso recipe from Kerbey Lane Café.”

“We choose to send queso to the moon &#821

1; and maybe once chips too These things are simple, but because they are difficult,” says Adler, who echoing President John F. Kennedy’s 1962s in Houston, which sets our nation’s ambitious “The challenge of eating queso in zero gravity is one we are willing to accept, one we are reluctant to postpone and one we intend to win, among other important challenges, like the next time we remember the chips.”

Kerbey Lane Café CEO Mason Ayer said, “As central civilization articles, I am not thinking of a more important, sustaining food. No archive, time capsule, library or vault is complete without queso. One day we hope the whole galaxy will benefit. Appears, the moon is not really made of cheese. So we sent a little. “

Adler apparently offered himself without the Council’s approval – a financial incentive package” hoping to welcome alien visitors and future citizens. “Sounds like an even better deal than the Amazon comes from Washington, DC, area. And this is where your dog may be involved.

QUESO RANKINGS: Is Kerbey Lane queso the best in Texas?

” Austin has a multi- step incentive process that normally involves a public hearing, “said Adler, these hearings have a history of entering the small hours of the morning.” But for extraterrestrial or future life forms we are prepared to make an exception. “

I can swear that I’ve already seen some people at city council meetings that seem to be off, let’s say “somewhere else.” [19659002] Adler offers freebies, including “unlimited queso” (not included), “your own band” and “a dog (and a cat if you want, I guess). But to fit in here you need a dog with you on your standup paddleboard and to accompany you on track running around Lady Bird Lake. So we’ll give you one. Choose any dog ​​in town, that’s yours. “

” If it helps your decision to visit, “wrote Adler,” please know that extraterrestrial creatures have already been to Austin, become cultural icons and even run for mayors – and they are always welcome here. As a result, I proudly attach a photo of Albert & # 39; Leslie & # 39; Cochran. “(Cochran was the late cross-band’s local celebrity and once unsuccessful mayor.)” 19659018] “I’m not going to say exactly what slideshows,” Adler said of the picture, “but Leslie’s month Austin enough times. It was at the time Austin was the moon. “

We have to ask this: If Leslie had become mayor, he would have sent a photo of Adler? The mayor’s letter to aliens ended with a serious note:

” It is my hope that on the next day you Reading this will have solved the many things on earth that we are less proud of. At present, the world has not responded sufficiently to the serious threat of climate change and environmental law. And our society has allowed people to be depressed, not to admit that every person, regardless of the immutable nature of their birth or their station in life, lives with the same fire that illuminates the stars at night. Austin is working today to make this a better universe by addressing homelessness and inequality and through our support for the environment, restoring justice in our society and our lasting beauty.

“Maybe a future time capsule will send happy news about our solutions to the worries that threaten what is good in our city and our world. We in Austin not only hope for a better and fairer tomorrow, but take the difficult steps in the present, so that we will survive our time and we can live in you. Can this message represent our continued hope and determination and our good will in a great and wonderful universe. “

And now let the argument begin on whether Kerbey queso really is the best in town.
