Is there a funny side to UFOs?


We don’t think so.

Consider every sighting or UFO event, even those that are iffy….

Abductions are serious and painful, physically and psychologically, no matter whether they are real or not.

The Maury Island sighting was disastrous, as was the Mantell episode.

Nothing good has come from the Roswell debacle.

Radiation burns and illnesses have afflicted some UFO observers.

Close encounters have not been jovial by a long shot.

Pilot observations and military contact with UFOs, here in the States and abroad, have not proven to be hilarious.

Persons have lost their jobs when they’ve reported flying saucer encounters, and some have committed suicide when they’ve become too involved with UFOs.

(Some may even have been murdered to keep what they knew from the light of day.)

The Hills didn’t have a fun-time when they had their UFO encounter, and ridicule has followed many who’ve had the temerity to report a UFO sighting.

We know that some in the UFO community think UFOs are grist for humor (or attempts at such), even going so far as to provide silly awards and encomiums for those besotted by the phenomenon.

Think of James McDonald, Secretary of Defense James Forrestal, M.K. Jessup, John Mack, et alia and you won’t find a rib-tickler in any of their stories.

Even if UFOs are not a military or security threat to the United States or any other country on the Earth, they still do not provoke laughter among cognoscenti.

Only the demented would make light of UFOs…
