Here's a bit of German TV tabloidism to get your Tuesday arvo juices pumping. An 'alien' baby was found in Mexico by some ursine farmer who proceeded to drown the frackin' thing. Anyway, the little creature's corpse eventually ended up in the capable hands of a bunch of scientists who proceeded to "run tests" on it.

The Sept 2009 video clip has, not surprisingly, been filtched by many and placed on pages loaded with crap ads. This site is the website of news publisher Bild, so it should stay there for a while.

But here's the thing. Why wasn't this 'alien' discovery more broadly publicised? I certainly recall no mention of it in my extensive media travels. But there are signs it's a hoax.

For example, from the Bild story: "Mexican UFO expert Jaime Maussan (56) was the first to break the story." So a sky ponderer was the first to publicise the story? Hmm.

It gets worse, however.

Mexican TV revealed the almost unbelievable story - in 2007, a baby 'alien' was found alive by a farmer in Mexico.

He drowned it in a ditch out of fear, and now two years later scientists have finally been able to announce the results of their tests on this sinister-looking carcass.

At the end of last year the farmer, Marao Lopez, handed the corpse over to university scientists who carried out DNA tests and scans.

There are a lot of questions in this story. How long did the farmer wait before he handed it in? Which university did he hand it to? Where are all these scientists based who are carrying out tests on the thing?

Other websites add to one's concern about the value of truth. On the Now Public website, we find this:

According to the scientists' report, the alien baby can stay underwater for a long time, has the skeleton of a lizard, and has rootless teeth which are totally unlike humans' teeth. However, it does have some similar joints to human. The brain of the alien baby is huge, particularly the rear section, which makes the scientists believe that the creature had very high intelligence.

OK, so there are a lot of scientists doing tests on a dead body said to have been found in Mexico by a farmer. But it turns out the farmer has died, burned in his car.

According to American UFO expert Joshua P. Warren (32), the farmer burned to death in a parked car at the side of a road. The flames apparently had a far higher temperature than in a normal fire! Now there are rumours that the parents of the creature Lopez drowned were the ones who in turn killed him out of revenge.

You see, the area where the 'alien' was discovered is frequently visited by crop circles. So you've got the angry alien parents descending to earth once more and carrying out a targeted hit on the ignorant peasant who drowned their precious child to death.

Why didn't they go after the scientists? Because they - like us - didn't know where they are based?

Anyway, at least we ignorant foreigners are appraised of the quality of Bild as a magazine, because the only news outlet to cover the story in Australia was The Daily Telegraph; so that's a relief anyway. Bild is so proud of its story that it won't even let the Tele display its video on their website.

So, forget about Hobbits in Indonesia, this lil' baby was lost, found and lost all in the blink of an eye.
