Looking for a quote about Lisp and aliens.

Some time in the last 20 years, probably in the early 90s, I heard some quote that went something like this:
When we finally meet aliens, they will be programming in Lisp. (Or maybe "will have already discovered Lisp"?)
I cannot find this quote anywhere. It's possible it was some professor of mine and doesn't exist in any Lisp lore. It may also have been in dead-tree format and not internetized (yet).
