It’s the first day of vacation, and two men argue over the merits of doing some hunting and fishing, or to go hang out in the club drinking cocktails. Thurston would rather relax in the cabin, while his buddy Ed discovers a metal trap sitting outside the cabin door. What kind of trap is it? What kind of trap works by keeping it closed?
Following the instructions, the trap is set, placed near a tree, and… hey it’s glowing. Ed and Thurston continue their binge of drinking and doing some target shooting. Suddenly, the trap has caught something. Green, with lobster claws, somehow Ed doesn’t think its a rabbit.
Strange critters have been showing up in the trap, but the increasingly drunken guys can’t figure what good they are, or what to do with them. Maybe a museum could be named for them, and their discoveries. Of course the listener will know from the interspersed comments from an alien that the trap is a matter transporter. The curious drunks play with the trap, but will they make a new discovery, or thwart an alien invasion? Or just have a totally anti climactic ending for all involved.
