Last night, I was walking down the street then I got teleported in some kind of alien vessel.

Some little alien showed up and told me :


Then I responded :


So he teleported me back, and I was thinking about what he said, which I don't even understand, I don't understand what I said neither !

Do you agree with the alien? Do you think that what he said makes any sense?

The alien said:

Sorry, I'm afraid I mistook you with someone else and we teleported you by mistake.

And you answered

... gibberish, obviously
This confirmed the alien's suspicions. That's why they teleported you back.

  • $\begingroup$ @toto Thanks. I could have hardly figured it out: on my keyboard, the exclamation mark is at the exact opposite side of yours $\endgroup$

Did the alien say

what i said neither! from here "I don't understand what I said neither ! I am just looking at the the structure ....four words and a exclamation mark"

the alien did not make sense as you have no idea what he is talking about.

you obviously responded with gibberish.
