I know, this blog could be all Mitchell and Webb, all the time. But man, they're just so spot on with this stuff! I would've changed one single line: "Fortunately the aliens landed somewhere very remote which is also a well-known top secret Army base," adding "... where we also happen to be doing high-altitude atomic bomb detection research using weather balloons that, when crashed, look very much like flying saucers." But then, I'm a humorless skeptic striving all the time to bury the truth. Tip o' the tin foil beanie to Anders Øverby.
