Is this a joke?
A baffled mayor has asked scientists to examine the remains of what be believes to be the head of an alien dug up by workers in a graveyard in Croatia.
The twisted, soft-bodied remains – which seems to have a beak-like mouth in the centre – were unearthed in Medjimurje where gardeners were extending the local cemetery.
Mayor Ivan Stefic, seen here holding the head, explained: “It was found about one metre under the surface and gave the workers quite a shock.”
“I know it sounds crazy, but we can’t think of any more rational explanation for what we’ve found,” he added.
Wait, a buried alien head is a “rational explanation”? It’s ridiculous! This looks like an oddly shaped tree part. The bark could have become soft from the burial. Wood should be easy to discern from other substances like rock and bone. But no one seems to have thought about that. An “alien head” is too
stupid good of a story.
Regardless, it’s a neat object. Driftwood, smoothed into strange shape by wave and sand action also makes for interesting objects.
