Alien scouts for pies in China

aliens land in china to eat pies for national pie week
Take me to your pie shop: Some aliens yesterday. (Check bottom for credit.)

Do aliens exist? Have they landed in China? And are they on the hunt for some decent pies? You be the jury!

After weeks of nothing cropping up I re-found a video of interesting origin.

So apparently a UFO lands in China and the little fella inside checks his landing gear while some lads and lasses watch.

I dunno what to make of this.

If it's fake it's superb really but surely it would cost an absolute fortune to make.

Stories like this have cropped up throughout the ages as well, to be fair to the video, and I think that's probably its appeal.

Russia has loads of stories similar to this alone.

Anyway, have a look and decide for yourself.

It's the best thing to do, I'd say.

All I really do know right now is it's National Pie Week this coming March 4-10.

So perhaps that bulbous-headed space dude was just on the hunt for some pies, pasties and sausage rolls.

After all, hyper-driving across the galaxy must be pretty hungry work hence all the cattle mutilations.

Pies rule.

The above video was embedded from the StephenHannardADGUK YouTube channel, where you can watch a shed load more alien/UFO vids, although it does seems a bit thin on the subject of pies. Meanwhile, for more info on National Pie Week, have a click of this.

What mean fortean?

The terms fortean and forteana derive from the work of Charles Hoy Fort (1874-1932), an American journalist who catalogued anomalous and paranormal reports, ranging from frog falls and spontaneous human combustion to ghosts, cryptids and UFOs. Spending much of his time sifting through "the data of the damned" in the New York Public Library and the British Museum Library, he wrote four seminal texts based on his findings and theories, viz The Book of the Damned (1919), New Lands (1923), Lo! (1931) and Wild Talents (1932). To learn more about this home-brewing inventor of topeacho, have a read of this.
