Apparently Shangdong residents are a bit less creative than Rick Dyer when it comes to perpetrating hoaxes.
In a story from ShanghiList.com
Shandong man claims he electrocuted an alien and stored it in his freezer
Today in obvious bullshit: a man from Binzhou, Shandong province, claims he found an alien on the banks of the Yellow River and stored it in his freezer, Guizhou Metropolis Daily reports.
Weibo is currently going nuts over this story, and the not-at-all-fake-looking photos that accompany it. The discoverer of the extraterrestrial, a man surnamed Lee, said he saw a number of UFOs flying over the Yellow River when one crashed to the ground. The alien conveniently hit an electric rabbit trap Lee had set up previously, incapacitating it and allowing Lee to transport it to his freezer.
According to a statement from Binzhou police, the alien is, amazingly, fake. Upon inspection, the extraterrestrial proved to be made out of rubber.
Excited Weibo-ites are tying the two stories together as evidence of an alien invasion, because duh.
I am truly scratching my head as to what more there is to say here.
Oh, well, no use losing any more hair over this one.
