From the webcomic: OK, so it's pretty common and accepted in the webcomic that anthropomorphic animals exist and live among humans. So why is it whenever Art calls the police or an insurance company, they treat him like he's nuts whenever he mentions an anthropomorphic animal is the reason for his calling?
So the aliens of the last arc are peaceful. And yet they saw fit to abduct people, drug and publicly humiliate them. Uhm, couldn't they have simply told and shown those people the truth like they eventually did?
The aliens assumed they were willing agents of James Cameron, and considering the number of nerds (See: Pip) that would do anything he asked just because they were talking to James Cameron, their methods might not seem as suspect with that perspective in mind.
