I remember my mother waking me up for school one day (this was back in the 70’s) with exciting news about an incredible photo in the newspaper that morning. It seems that aliens from outer space had been caught creeping through the woods, and a lucky photographer was there to capture an image of the beings.
I hurried out of bed and into the kitchen to see this photo for myself. There on the front page of the newspaper was a photo of two space aliens peeking through the forest trees, a look of surprise as they were caught by a photographer.
Boy was I excited, at least until I read the caption below the photo. The caption read:
JEFF AND STEVE (I am leaving out the last name), FROM A NEARBY TOWNSHIP , HAVE PROVED THAT A 200 FOOT ROLL OF REYNOLDS WRAP CAN MAKE TWO MARTIANS.
THE TWO BOYS MADE THE PHONES RING AT THE TOWNSHIP POLICE HEADQUARTERS AFTER THEY PUT ON THE WRAP AND GAS MASKS AND WALKED AROUND A WOODED AREA ON ROUTE 35 . THE BOYS STARTLED MOTORIST DRIVING IN THAT AREA.
Well the photo turned out to be a hoax, but I cut it out anyway and placed in my UFO scrap book. I was going through some things and found it the other day, so I thought I would share it with you.
If you are thinking about doing this, I’d at least wait till next Halloween and stay in a group with other aliens and goblins. In this day and time I would not suggest pulling such a prank – a good way to get shot or run over by a scared motorist.
