I know that the internet is currently exploding with many more epic X-Files things right now, but I just wanted to share something small that I stumbled upon. See, I’m a really big fan of both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. So after I got home from last weekend’s Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear in Washington, D.C., I decided that I just had to have The Daily Show’s latest publication, Earth (The Book): A Visitor’s Guide to the Human Race.
As the title implies, it’s pretty much a guidebook to all things human. And where would humanity be without Mulder and Scully to save the day? We Philes understand their importance, but it seems that the folks at The Daily Show see it, too. Because in the television section of the culture chapter (specifically chapter 9, page 210), Mulder and Scully make a special appearance.
Sure it’s a comedic book, but it’s also one that details the history and greatest accomplishments of humanity. And The X-Files has a place in it. That doesn’t really surprise any of us. Let’s just hope that someone sent Fox a copy.
