They're Made Out of Meat

Good sci-fi has a way of putting everything into perspective, even when it's short and/or silly. Here's an excerpt from the short story They're Made Out of Meat:
"I thought you just told me they used radio."

"They do, but what do you think is on the radio? Meat sounds. You know how when you slap or flap meat, it makes a noise? They talk by flapping their meat at each other. They can even sing by squirting air through their meat."
