Answer in Triplicate, Please

The twist on looking for the sublime and finding more of the ridiculous is cool. Ron Goulart was about this good, and it reminded me of one of his stories. I would like to see more of this writer.

The best part of the story was the Bureaucratic alien world contrasted with the human small mindedness. A whole novel could be made of how someone procedes to use the bureaucratic nature of the aliens against them, conquering the galaxy.

The weakest part of the story was it's lack of detail about the aliens, their city, and other details which would be foremost in the crew's mind. Since the story was headed for a punch line, this was understandable, but if this is expanded into a series of chapters for a novel, more detail is a must.
