Chualar, California - It's looking increasingly likely that someone, probably ET, forgot to call their Mom and Pop over the Yuletide holidays after a huge SIM card-themed crop circle appeared at a Chualar Canyon Road farm field in the Salinas Valley close to Monterrey.
Close inspection of the weird Braille-like markings in the circle's interior seems to show the numbers 192 in what British cryptologists say is the designation of an online telephone directory for the United Kingdom, official world Crop Circle HQ.
This week's 500ft-diameter field etching appeared in an alfalfa field just as astronauts aboard the International Space Station finally completed repairs to their top secret laser space pen which many reckon is responsible for creating the crop circle phenomenon.
Two years ago a Wiltshire, UK farmer reported the appearance of a crop circle depicting an image of a chillum-toting alien inhaling something narcotic, prompting speculation about just what kind of recreational goodies were being enjoyed at the Space Station by the ten man-strong crew.
Commenting on the latest crop circle emanation a spokesperson for George Lucas denied it's all part of a publicity stunt promoting the 1982 box orifice blockbuster, adding WTF?'
