What do you find more amazing? An x-ray of a dead duck which has a funny Rorschach image of an alien head in it, or the fact that it can dominate headlines around the world?
The story started when a bird rescue center x-rayed a dead duck it had picked up. The staff was 'stunned' to see what appeared to be the face, or head, of an extraterrestrial alien in the bird's stomach.
"Marie looked at it and all she could say was 'unbelievable,'" said Karen Benzel, public affairs director for the rescue center. Perhaps more unbelievable is the fact that such a trivial story soon spread across every news network.
So far the x-ray story has made the Washington Post, Forbes, National Geographic, MSNBC and ABC. Sure, Fox news is no surprise, but what the hell is WaPo doing running this stuff?
Guess there's not much else news of note around at the moment ... apart from an impending World War III, a disgrace of a President, and military murders in Iraq.
Looks like we're left with a choice between x-ray duck aliens or fake news from the Government.
