BeWITNESS: The Roswell Post-Its

I didn't want to do this so soon after the big "BeWitness: The Roswell Slides" presentation earlier this week, but, what the hell. All anyone can talk about this week is "Roswell, Roswell, Roswell" (cue the Jan Brady voice) so I've decided to just go with the flow and reveal my bombshell here and now.

That's right, here's the first of the two famous "Roswell Post-Its" you've been hearing so much about the past two years...

They were found in a cardboard box in someone's attic, and an expert at 3M has assured me that they were definitely manufactured in the last century, so I'm feeling pretty good about their provenance. And before you say it, I know what you're going to ask: "even if he can prove the age of the Post-It, can he prove the age of the image on the Post-It?" QED: By dating the ink used, we can verify that the image was indubitably created sometime between 1889 and the present date.

I call her "Hilda"

Note the delicate bone structure, and the paper-like skin. As you can see, it is clearly NOT the remains of a dead human child or monkey. And it is absolutely NOT a mummy.

I also know what you're thinking now: "Hey! You said there were TWO Post-Its! Why are you showing us only one?" Well, because. I'll show the second Post-It when I'm good and ready, meaning "whenever I can book a date at the National Theater in Mexico City."

You forgot to call in origami experts. (How shoddy.)

Well, and investigator can't think of everything, can he?

The MUFON investigator handbook doesn't have a joke-writing section?

I'll have to send them a sample chapter.

(I do like your drawing. It's more alienesque than the figure in the Roswell slide.)

Uh... I thought the whole MUFON Field Manual was a joke book?

(Thanks for the compliment, but I did not draw the alien. That is exactly how I found it on the Post-It!)

Hah hah, so I'm not the only one who thinks that the MUFFIN Field Kitchenator Cookbook (open-book test)is a yoke?!
