Twats, Jim, but not as we know them

I am obliged to the science section of the Torygraph for the attached image which shows a recently discovered galaxy on the far reaches of the universe.

Experts say that there is no sign of intelligent life, but there could be organisms there capable of reciprocating communication. These creatures are likely to be surly, inarticulate and materialistic.
There is speculation that they are ruled over by a strangely eccentric being beyond the imagination of science fiction writers.


P.S. I was first. I am not normally given to boasting, but there are very few such momentous opportunies on the electric internet.

Even if they could see it, why would they want to?

If you saw a species like that on Dr Who - you really would have to hide behind the sofa.
