Come Celebrate The REAL Kind of Undocumented Aliens in Edinburg's UFO Conference This Weekend
If you're into aliens, and you're not too busy being rectally probed by some little gray dude with huge eyes, you might want to check out the Out of This World! UFO Conference and Festival in Edinburg this weekend.
The extraterrestrial extravaganza will feature bigwigs like Stanton Friedman, who, according to the Web site, "broke the story of the Roswell UFO crash," and keynote speaker Travis Walton, whose alleged alien abduction was dramatized in the movie Fire in the Sky.
The festival coincides with the 60th World Contact Day, a sort of holy day on which believers are called upon to telepathically tell aliens, "We will do all in our power to promote mutual understanding between your people and the people of Earth." (Hair Balls usually ends our telepathic communiqué with a request for hot space-babes.)
The event was organized by researcher Noe Torres, who's been featured on the History Channel's UFO Hunters, and who told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, "Almost everyone I talk to has either seen a UFO themselves or knows someone who has," which really makes us want to have dinner at his place sometime.
