"I knocked this up with a car hub cap and a cornflakes packet" said Mikey

UFO study groups are today claiming there's been a second 'Roswell' type cover up after a research balloon crashed in the Australian outback today.

"It's an exact copy of the Roswell scenario" said one man, "First there's an unexplained and mysterious crash in a remote desert and then they try to cover it up by claiming it's just a 'weather' balloon or something"

Despite the fact that footage of the actual events are widely available across the Internet, the UFO groups are not convinced.

"Technology has come a long way since 1947. With CGI and the video editing techniques now available to ordinary people just think what a determined government can produce in order to support its 'version' of events.", said the group's leader.

Another man, called Mikey, said that he had seen the footage and didn't believe it was genuine. "I tried making a video at the reported crash site. The shadows in the video are all wrong, just like the 'moon landing' fakes."

"When are people going to wake up to the reality that these things really exist" he added, "They're everywhere, you've just got to open your eyes."

At that moment, our interview was suddenly interrupted by a shout from another member of the group, "Hey look! There's another one." Looking up to where he was pointing, all I could see was the 22:10 London flight taking of from nearby Sydney airport.

When I mentioned this to the group they just looked at me with one of those 'poor deluded creature' looks before Mikey commented, "Yea, that's what they WANT you to believe."

"I've been abducted fifteen times, you wouldn't believe the number of probes I've had stuck into me, or where they put them. The last time they came it was in something just like that, bright penetrating white lights on the front and red and green flashing lights. It was horrifying!"

I started to tell them that I had flown lots of time and I knew exactly what I was looking at but, before I could finish, they started screaming hysterically and ran off into the desert.

The only intelligible thing I could make out from their high-pitched screams was "My god. She's one of THEM!" as they disappeared from sight.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
