There was hardly a whimper today when news emerged that the doctor carrying out the autopsy of the now-dead King of Pop, Michael Jackson, is the same man that was in charge of the investigation into the so-called Roswell UFO Incident in 1947.
Roswell in New Mexico was the site where debris from at least one alien craft was recovered from a ranch field in July of that year, together with bodies of several aliens.
Dr Glenn Dennis, these days a mortician, led secret tests on the Roswell extraterrestrials , which, he now claims, "were not unlike Michael Jackson."
Jackson, 50, was born in 1959, and could not have been part of the 'Roswell landings', but may have been a result of some 'extraterrestrial breeding programme' carried out by the US military in the following years, and Dr Dennis has been summoned to carry out the autopsy at Fort Worth Airforce Base.
Fans of the dead singer have, for years, said that he was superhuman, and so weird was he, that it did, sometimes, seem that Jackson 'was not of this Earth'. Unlike any other 'normal' human being, his skin pigmentation changed as he got older, giving the impression that he may subconsciously have been trying to mimick this planet's dominant species, and trying to become white.
Police say that they found countless drawings "on a alien theme" at Jackson's house, drawings that the troubled entertainer may have produced as a result of some "advanced cognitive processes", according to Dr Dennis.
The results of the Jackson Autopsy will be widely-available to the public sometime after 2059.
