A man in Gloucester had the scariest moment of his life yesterday, when an unidentified flying object - known as a UFO - landed on his head whilst he was taking cuttings from some roses in his garden.
Thomas Giro, 58, had been about his business for around fifteen minutes, when he heard, what he calls, "a whirring sound" coming from above his position. Being lazy, he ignored it, but what happened next was to change his life forever!
Giro felt something touch his head, and thought at first that a bird had crapped on him. When he put his hand up to see, however, he discovered he had been visted by extraterrestrials - or at least, by an alien craft!
The intrepid gardener, who, until earlier this year, was a long-term resident at the Gloucester Psychotherapy Clinic For Nitwits, has since worn the 'strange alien craft' on his head, to show he bears no ill-will to creatures from other planets. Giro said:
"We are not alone. I wasn't at all afraid, and now that contact has been made, I quite like having them around. Their spaceship makes a nice hat."
