It's time to present the award for the Top Ten UFO Hoaxes
of All Time. This is a difficult award to give, because the
competition is so fierce. Anyway, here are the winners:
10. George Adamski
Holy Blavatski! That UFO looks like an inverted street light!
9. Snippy the Horse
Not a great case, but recognized as the father of the cattle
mutilation/UFO connection. Accepting the award posthumously
on behalf of Snippy and the Ananias Club will be Linda Howe...
8. Travis Walton
How about the best 2 out of 3 lie detector results?
7. Dulce, NM
Spanish for "sweet, like a sucker" as in "there's a sucker
born every minute..."
6. Hudson Valley
The "Blue Angels" of the ultralight world...
Say it ain't so, Marcel!
3. Gulf Breeze
Also winner of the "Ed Walters Special Effects Award"
(MJ12 + Shandera, Moore, Lazar, and Lear)
and the winner of the "check your brains at the door" award
for the top UFO hoax of all time is:
1. The Linda Napolitano case, also known as "Manhattan
Transfer," or "The hoax of the century."
Condolences to all the losers... but there's always the yearly
