Man Wearing Short Shorts Gets UFO Buzz

Lawrie Fuchs, 70, and his wife Gwen, 69, were returning to their home town of Elliott following a trip to Queensland when a UFO swooped at them as they drove along the Barkly Highway.
Estimated to be about six metres wide, they say the object passed the vehicle with such speed that its slipstream forced their Mazda sedan into the middle of the road.
"It was about 4pm I was driving along having just opened my fourth tinny when suddenly we saw a dark, silvery flash and heard a loud sound as it passed,'' Mr Fuchs said.
"It was travelling at a terrific speed, very bloody fast, and there was no warning at all, UFOs should learn the etiquette of the highway ."
"I'm sure it dive-bombed us but I can't imagine why.''"I do a lot of bush work and over the years I've seen a number of strange, unexplained things like running out of beer when you swear that you hadn't drank that many ,'' he said.
Mrs Fuchs said she saw a little flash just below the sun visor then heard a loud whoosh as it passed over."I actually thought it hit the car, but there were no marks just the skidmarks in my undies,'' she said.
Mr Fuchs, a mechanic who has lived in Elliot for 40 years, says he took the incident in his stride.
"I don't talk about it much because sometimes people don't take you seriously.''

We here at OBB News take everything seriously.
Another man reported seeing a UFO near Tennant Creek. Alan Martin, who is deaf, was obviously shaken by his experience.
The Aboriginal man in his 40s had bought alcohol and headed alone into scrub land to avoid being humbugged which means having money demanded from you with threats or violence.
He described seeing a disc-shaped object at close range. His drawing indicated it had red, green and blue lights.
Maybe he should consider to stop drinking.

Is it weird that I can't get over that this couple drives a Mazda? I was totally picturing a Nova. Or maybe a station wagon with wood panels.

Next thing I know, you'll tell me that they also own a DVD player and refer to VHS as "old school".

I reckon it was Kevin Rudd - testing out one of these hybrid cars they want all of the pollies here to drive - and he hit a 'roo or something!

Ha ha!

I like it when, after a night of drinking and general merrymaking, I go home, lie down and get the spins. Those little swirly things that start innocently enough and then finally take the entire room into the vaccumm. Like the motion of an alien spaceship. I think I've even been visited.
