Bore of the Worlds

Phew, you can stop panicking now Bristol. The mystery is solved.

The Evening Post’s Chief Reporter has been on the case since Monday, and the paper has revealed on page three today that we are not being invaded by aliens. Where would we be without them?

But where did anyone get the stupid idea that a few floating lanterns were UFO’s in the first place?

Oh, yeah . . .


So how did the Post’s Chief Reporter go about investigating the mystery? How did they solve this one?

Maybe they looked at the reader comments under on the Post’s website under their original story:

Visitors from space? No chance. It was decorated balloons released by a “Beaver” scout group on Saturday evening.

stargazer: what you saw (and what the article refers to too) is probably a set of candle-lit paper sky lanterns, which are widely available from the

internet. (type Sky lanterns in google)

    I’d forgotten about Maguire. The brilliant investigative brains behind that great front page expose of Ian Bone for, er … having a job! He did it under a pseudonym if I recall, no doubt for fear of reprisals.
