Some of you may recall that Mr. Nick Pope, famous UFOlogist and former member of Britain's Ministry of Defence responsible for UFO related matters there, made a statement a few days ago, prior to the (bizarre and quasi-occultic) opening "ceremonies" and H.M. Elizabeth II's dour expressions, that the games would be the perfect time for ET to show up. Mr. Pope, you'll recall, then went on to make statements that were a lesson in the subtleties of cognitive dissonance, saying on the one hand that the ETs would be warm and friendly, but that the RAF had the means to shoot them down (presumably in case they were not so friendly), thus initiating interplanetary and perhaps interstellar hostilities against an enemy whose potential we know next to nothing about, and making one wonder just what they're teaching the British military at Sandhurst any more, or, for that matter, putting into the food and coffee in London....

Well, according to the Huffington Post, the "event" has indeed happened...well, at least part of it anyway, and a UFO (or a badly photoshopped photograph at least) has made its appearance over London (not,mind you, that London has been bereft of UFO reports in the past):

Honestly, is it just me, or does anyone else think world events are starting to resemble that great dog of a movie (honestly folks, it's so bad  it's almost good), Plan Nine from Outer Space, whose special effects of blowing up planets should have given George Lucas some inspirations, or the one where the Three Stooges foiled an invasion from Mars with a flying submarine(I kid you not)?
