Well, if I were doing the sort of work he was doing (monitoring radio
noise from distant galaxies) and something in perfectly recognizable
(albeit weird) English came up on the readouts, my conclusion
would be "someone on the project has a strange sense of humor".  The
only reason I might track down someone named in such a printout would
be to find out who they might know who would be on the project and be
a practical joker.  I certainly wouldn't take the message seriously as
a communication from outer space.  Although if I lived in Twin Peaks,
I might at least consider it...
