MonoMonday: Alien!

OK, so Nickimags888 asked for an Alien for today’s MonoMonday (thanks Nicki).
Well, whoever knew that Zaphod Beeblebrox looked rather like me?!
In case you’re not familiar with Zaphod (is that possible?), he’s a 2-headed 3-armed alien from a planet in the vicinity of Betelgeuse, invented by Douglas Adams in the sci-fi story The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy. He’s said to be a "semi-half-cousin" of Ford Prefect with whom he "shares three of the same mothers". Because of "an accident with a contraceptive and a time machine" his direct ancestors from his father are also his direct descendants…! (Yes, it’s complicated!)

(No genuine aliens - or humans - were harmed in the production of this image.)
