There was an extremely funny column in Locus about 10 years back, 
purporting to be a report on the American publishing industry by an 
alien life form from another world who'd been sent to spy on them. At 
the end of the column the spy was dragged out and executed because it 
was obvious to his interlocutors that he had to be making the whole 
thing up, NOBODY would do business that way!
