Archive for Thursday 23rd October 2003 - UFOs have their funny side

People say to me, “You must receive a lot of mad emails from readers about their UFO experiences.” Actually, no. Of all the emails you have sent me, not one has been from a mad person.

I have read all kinds of amazing stories. They are sincere, honest accounts of things that people have seen and cannot explain. I cannot explain them either. But I have learnt much from reading about them. One thing is that you should be careful who you talk to. If you tell your friends that you have seen a UFO, they usually laugh and say you are crazy.

That happened to Bob Cowe during a mass sighting of UFOs over Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire. He and others saw a ‘large, saucer-shaped object with shimmering lights round the edge’. He told the local police about it, but they just laughed.

The police made a joke of him. When they questioned some youths, who said they were just gazing at the night sky, they said, ‘ Don’t give us that Bob Cowe stuff!’

Months later Bob was called out to see a glowing UFO overhead. He went straight to the police station and reported it. ‘Not you again,’ they said. ‘But it is right over your station,’ said Bob. He took them outside, and they all saw a huge, white UFO with a cross over it.

I had a good laugh from this story. UFOs are a serious phenomenon, but they have their funny side. Humour is part of our natural world, and if UFOs display it, I am sure they are on the side of humanity.
