If you have time to watch a very short story-video?

They are made out of meat?
But then, what are they made of then?

Amusing. I never understood why the aliens have a word for meat though. Any ideas?

Maybe they have animals, but had never encountered an intelligent "meat" species before? heh

Unless they eat these animals they should call it "flesh".

Point taken. Hmm, perhaps in all their (admitted) studies of us, their attempts to blend in, learning our languages, etc. "Meat" is simply the word which stood out from the English language for them? They adopted it for lack of said concept in their own language.

It's probably not actually worth so much thought, but it's a fun little video. And a little thought-provoking which is nice.
