Paul Hellyer Phones Home

25 Nov ’05

Yahoo is running a bizarre piece stating that Paul Hellyer, a former Canadian Minister of Defence and Deputy Prime Minister under Pierre Trudeau, has joined forces with three NGOs to ask Parliament to hold public hearings on relations with advanced extraterrestrial civilizations that may now be visiting Earth.

The story is bafflingly short on real detail.

But in any event, once the hearings begin, look for the participants to be wearing these.

Update: Wonkette’s spin is hilarious:

Well, you know how it is: We have to fight them on the moon so that we won’t have to fight them here. Besides which, we already have it on good authority that the aliens will greet us as liberators.
