Because outer space needs more Canada

Let’s play a parlour game. So the aliens have finally arrived, the spaceships are hovering over all the major cities of the earth, and the following request arrives:  Please send three representatives to meet with your new overlords.

Ok, so, who do we send? Who are humanity’s envoys to the men from the stars? I’ll skip the hypotheticals, except to note that the Handcaper would almost certainly send Cameron Diaz and LeBron James.

Two good choices, but we can do better. In fact, I think it is fairly obvious that we should send the following individuals:

1. William Shatner
2. Pamela Anderson
3. Keanu Reeves
