I like aliens. Bulbous heads, big eyes, green/grey/orange skin. What’s not to love? I am a Resident Alien, so I have an affinity for my people 😉
I have an orange alien on my credit card. My bank allows you to upload a picture, so why not an alien? It was rejected initially – no sense of humor at the bank apparently. I just kept reapplying until they gave in. A small victory for the alien population … with bank accounts.
Anywho, I digress …
I have mentioned before that I visited the de Young King Tut exhibition. Although the exhibit itself was a little disappointing, I have discovered some interesting facts. My favorite object in the exhibit was a sculpted head of a princess. Why? She looks like an alien (see pic, not the orange one).
Me: “Wow. Looks like an alien!”
Random Person Standing Next To Me: <Raises eyebrows>
Me: <Notices the eyebrows on the RPSNTM> “Oh, yes, they were definitely here!”.
RPSNTM: <Takes a step back, and there are those eyebrows again>
You know what it’s like at these exhibits. There’s a route, you tend to move about the exhibit with the same crowd of random people moving at the same pace …
There was a second object I was drawn to – a piece of jewelry featuring a scarab beetle made of an unusual stone. Alongside the object was a video screen describing the origins of the unusual stone. It was fused sand made when a meteor hit the earth in the Sahara Desert. Or maybe not.
Me: “Meteor my foot! That was the alien landing!”
Same, Therefore Not So Random, Person Standing Next To Me: <Direct from the Roger Moore School of Acting, the eyebrows go up again>
Me: <Warming to the audience. I do like an audience!> “The rise of the Egyptians was due to an alien invasion! They were here. This is proof!”
STNSRPSNTM: <Eyebrows out of control, slowly moves away … to a different room … with a security guard>
I was just having a bit of fun 🙂
However, the story is not over yet. When I started looking for images to go with this post, I stumbled into to many UFO/alien web forums where these two items are actually cited as proof of an alien invasion!
We are not alone. Who knew 😉
