Summary :

Once we've begun to establish contact with alien races among the stars, we'll need to get to know their ways in order to make the most of cultural exchange. Perhaps sending an emissary to live on an alien world, as one of them, would be a practical method of starting. Or maybe not so practical, as this risible adventure suggests.
