Saucer news olds

The files include descriptions of flying
saucers like these (computer illustration)

Big news the other day:
New Zealand releases UFO government files

Journalists are all "Secret Military Files!!!" as if the involvement of the Air Force lent some verisimiltude to an otherwise bald and unconvincing narrative. Only in the small print do we read that the Air Force merely logged and archived the reports, lacking the resources to test their plausibility, or the sanity and sobriety of the reporters, or the existence of non-ET-related explanations.

Also the BBC's computer illustration needs more photoshopped monkeys with guns.

UPDATED from Changi Airport Transit Lounge: Bonus 3D photograph.

What more convincing evidence could there be? Also.

the existence of non-ET-related explanations

Such as hollow-earth Nazi saucer pilots and deros.

My theory is that Santa is an alien and the reindeer are actually a hyperspace - based interstellar transport mechanism, fueled by peppermints and leaving only reindeer poop as a waste product. The alien user (who, of course, would consider US the aliens, but once you start down that whole self-perception rabbit hole there's no turning back) can attach any of a wide variety of vehicles to the "Reindeer" transport device - the sleigh is a standard one man cargo carrier.

Jesus (also an alien) prefers the jet pack...

This whole information dump is great for journalists -- they get to repeat saucer-sighting stories that they already covered 20 or 30 years ago, but that first airing of each story was bogged down by tedious pedantry from the skeptics about "venus" and "lights from squid-fishing boats" and "obvious hoax", whereas this time they can ignore all that wet-blanket stuff.
