This is one of the funniest SciFi story ever
Aside from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (only the first one), this "They're made out of meat" is the funniest science fiction story ever I've ever read or watched.

If you find Star Trek enjoyable, then Peter David's Q-Squared a really funny, time-bending read steeped in ST:TOS and ST:TNG lore.
