Larry King: Threat to planetary security?

Larry King is releasing his most recent "written-with" autobiography in time for Father's Day 2009. It's an odd marketing strategy--despite his many marriages, it's probably anybody's guess whether people associate King more with Father's Day or with Arbor Day.

All of this serves no particular purpose other than as an excuse to finally publish a Separated At Birth I've been sitting on for a while: Septaugenarian celebrity interviewer King and thirty-first century human-loathing "Futurama" news anchor Morbo:

Quake in fear, puny humans! Our invasion of Earth is set to begin on the date of your next ritual celebration of male progenitors!

(Note: Wikipedia mentions an unsourced claim that Morbo's appearance is based on the aliens in the 1957 movie Invasion of the Saucer Men. It seems more likely that "Futurama" creator Matt Groening started this rumor to head off the possibility of litigation by King.)
