Mountain View CA: After announcing that its search engine has discovered life on another planet, Google admitted today that it had made a complete hash of the aliens intentions, as several hundred alien motherships flew over major cities around the world with the threat of invasion imminent.
Ceo, Barry Cage, had announced to the world that they had made contact with 90377 Sedna, a dwarf planet some Eighty Trillion miles away. However a mix up with the documents in the initial transmissions, now placed the worlds armies and leaders on full scale alert.
Said Cage - "We made contact with the Sednans a few weeks back and instead of asking for help we decided to run their messages through Google Translate. We got the message that the aliens were 'friendly, had a GSOH, interested in human life and posed no threat to the world' when in fact the message read 'We're coming to take your water and eat your children"
"Needless to say" continued Cage "we shall be reviewing our google translate algorithms immediately. We would like to apologize to the world for this amazing cock-up and state that your Gmail account will be unaffected."
Emergency committees were set up in major cities to deal with the current threat. President Bush said "Hey if they got oil, we'll give em some children from Iraq" whilst Gordon Brown said "It's all Blairs fault". Meanwhile president Putin invaded Europe while all the fuss was going on.
