Watch "They're Made Out of Meat" on YouTube

I found a rather good version of Terry Bisson's short story "They're Made Out of Meat" on YouTube. Unfortunately, it doesn't include the ending, and it was evidently recorded that way on purpose. The full story is also online. I love this story because it portrays a genuinely alien -- and yet perfectly understandable -- perspective.
