Alien Invasion Tuesday!

Well, if it appears on the internet, it must be true, right?

Apparently, October 14th is the day we welcome our new alien overlords.

Don't believe me? Even bookies aren't taking action any more on this 1000-1 shot:

WORRIED bookmakers have stopped taking bets on aliens showing up on Earth.It follows a flurry of bets amid internet buzz that a massive intergalactic spaceship will appear tomorrow.

Videos and messages on YouTube, blogs and UFO websites are buzzing with predictions that a vessel from the alien Federation Of Light will be visible in our skies for three days.

It may all sound more oddball than odds-on - but bookies William Hill are taking it seriously enough to temporarily suspend betting on proof of the existence of intelligent alien life being confirmed by PM Gordon Brown.

It follows a rush of bets, including one punter who wanted to place a s3000 bet at odds of 1000-1. Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said: "This is the first time an internet phenomenon has affected our business." We now have seven-figure liabilities if the ship does appear. We have decided to duck any more big bets until the 14th has passed, hopefully without incident."

Well, I don't care what the alien bureucrats from this "Federation of Light" try to sell me - I still won't vote for Barack Obama!
