You know all those ex-Googlers taking over AOL?Turns out the old-timers have a hilarious nickname for them. They call them “Vs.” (Pronounced Veez).
Allow us to explain the joke.
In the ABC television show “V,” aliens have suddenly arrived on Earth, and are floating above all its major cities in huge gleaming spaceships.
These aliens — all of them very attractive and PR-savvy — soon come out of their ships and begin solving all kinds of huge environmental and health problems for all of mankind.
But there’s a secret about these visitors, called Vs. They are actually reptiles disguised to look like humans. Worse: they want to conquer earth and destroy humanity. To pull off this plot, some of them have been on earth for years, seeding environmental destruction and geo-political conflict.
So! Now that you get the whole alien-invaders-that-look-like-us-but-prettier joke, it’s time to play along. To prove how hard it is tell an ex-Google AOL (AOL) employee apart from a real V, we’ve put together a little quiz. It’s called…
