Client Advice

If the Planet Earth were to become my client, I would advise it to immediately rid itself of the horrible infestation of Humans that is threatening its continued existence.

William's Whimsical Words:

Like many clients, the Earth is wiser than its counselors, and would likely respond that it has seen these infestations before and they invariably self-destruct.
