Taylor Swift, the alien sociologist best known for her groundbreaking study into the group behavior of young human beings, continued her embedded research this month by participating in the ritual exchange of Christmas gifts with her subjects.
The fans, who she had observed extensively online for months by monitoring something earth-men call "blogs," were thrilled to receive some of the excess trinkets Swift had collected on her travels across their strange blue planet. She even shared one of her recent breakthrough observations about humans: "The more you laugh, the happier you are."
Taylor's Log, Stardate 68333.2: Although their words indicated joy at receiving my offering, the adolescent female emitted a saline solution from her visual receptors, a reaction I previously understood as consistent with unhappiness. Could this "crying" have more than one meaning? Further investigation necessary.
