Yes, between the floods and the earthquakes and the global warming, things on earth seem dire, but finally here is a good piece of news: Staffers at a bird rescue center in California, in x-raying an injured duck, found the severed head of an extraterrestrial alien. So for those of you whose friends had scoffed at your theories about how aliens would first make their presence known at bird rescue centers, you can lay on a big "told ya so."
The reason this is such good news is that now we know we have nothing to fear from an alien invasion, because if they do attack, they will quickly and efficiently be consumed by the planet's waterfowl. Or at least their heads will be. We're still working out the details.
