Seen a UFO? Don’t call the MoD – anymore

with 5 comments

For more half a century paranoid fantasies about flying saucers, little green men and alien invasions were officially indulged by the existence of a department within the Ministry of Defence that investigated UFO sightings.

But after more than 11,000 sightings spawning countless conspiracy theories, the department has been scrapped. The UFO hotline is no more…

Are we alone in the universe? The MoD doesn’t care any more. When you ring the old hotline number, you get a terse recorded message: “Please note it is no longer MoD policy to record, respond to, or investigate UFO sightings,” it says.

The U.S. government isn’t much better. Not since Project Bluebook days – and I think that was designed to keep an eye on complainers.

Your only choices, nowadays, are local law enforcement – when they finished chuckling at you, try one of the fanboys.

  1. Its the ultimate cover up. Now all we have left is Coast – to – Coast. Not much of a difference.

  2. So, what do I do with this little naked grey guy/gal/it I captured last night; the one with the huge head and the big black teardrop eyes and no visible, external genitalia?

    Do I send him/her/it back to the big silver ship floating above the forest?

    Or what?

    • I found they are quite tasty sliced thin and fast fried with fresh mushrooms. A nice Bordeaux is a good companion although some might prefer something lighter.

      Asparagus Alfredo makes a nice side dish with some cheddar and raw celery stalks to “cleans” the palate.

      • Thank you, Doctor Lecter!

        I wonder, if I eat the brains do you think I’ll get any smarter – or less gullible – or do those two improvements in intellect go hand-in-hand?

        • Naaa, Alien Head Cheese improving your intelligence is just one of those urban legends.
