It Came from Outer Space! Meteor-Like UFO Drops Mysterious, Spongy Organisms in Man's Yard

It Came from Outer Space! Meteor-Like UFO Drops Mysterious, Spongy Organisms in Man’s Yard


When a UFO streaked through the sky over a Chinese man’s residence last week, it left behind a spongy, oozing parting gift in his front yard.

Peng Xianyong of Yongjin, China described seeing a red and green meteor-like object fly overhead on March 22nd, and as it did, his front yard lit up for a split second. He didn’t think very much of it until the following day, when he walked into his front yard to find four very strange yellow organisms growing. When he peeled the spongy outer layer of the object (with a stick, one hopes), it revealed an oozing, golden center that quickly browned and crusted.

Local officials who learned of the strange growths quickly visited Peng to see for themselves, and after doing some poking and prodding of their own, told the WCC Daily that the objects smelled like “fresh plants” and had the consistency of “steamed goose eggs”.


While there is speculation that Peng simply saw a meteor, neither he, nor his fellow villagers believe it. They’re hoping that sending samples of the yellow organisms to the government’s agricultural department will back them up. Or, you know, at least get the blobs exterminated before they grow large enough to terrorize the city.

What do you make of Peng’s discovery? Did an unidentified flying object leave something behind? Or is it just a coincidence that Peng sees a meteor the night before a strange fungus pops up on his property?

      Hostess outsourced their Twinkie manufacturing. These were free samples.

        Ah, so they’re marketing the new “Alien Peeps”, just in time for Easter. And where the hell is that Bizarre Foods guy when you need him?

    Apparently neither the Chinese man who found the unidentified fungus-like material in his yard or the author of the article or the commentors has read Dean Koontz book “The Taking”……………….

    If you had you know that aliens dropping spongy spoor-like things onto the earth means they are beginning to reverse “terra”-form the planet to support their lifeforms….

    Duhn dun daaa! (Only partially kidding…..)

      Maybe the aliens are just trying to offset all that Chinese pollution?

      I’m with you on this. Imagine if it had landed on the man.

    For god’s sake, China, this is exactly how every alien monster movie starts. I don’t care what they smell like, DO NOT POKE AT THE ALIEN SPONGE.

    What do you think the chances are of us getting a report on this thing’s chemical makeup?

      Slim to none? Haha, I’ve learned to never hold my breath with these stories, particularly the ones from websites that need to be translated.

        Plus it’s China. That right there should tell us a lot. If the story isn’t bunk from the get go, you really think they’re going to say that alien’s dumped the crapper on a mans lawn?

        Anyways, we need to be looking for information in the private sectors, not government. In all honesty I know that the government drops off classified materials to the companies who could better reverse engineer or examine things than them. It makes too much sense not to hand it off.

    This explains why weird new viruses always seem to track back to China as the source.

    Hiya Greg,

    Looks like dog vomit fungus to me:

    What a lovely name, huh? Still no excuse to go poking it with a stick. That’s how pod people begin their worldwide takeover…
