Folks In Oregon Scared Witless By Sprouting Potato UFO!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Just in time for Thanksgiving, the good people of Milwaukie, Oregon have sighted what they`re calling a  sprouting potato UFO.  Don Andersberg spotted this floating, festively-colored spud hovering over his backyard, and immediately captured it on video."

This UFO was probably a cloud, when I`m hungry and I look up at the clouds they look like hamburgers, fries and a milkshake. The good people of Milwaukie had Thanksgiving dinner on their minds; I think it`s safe to assume Oregon isn`t being invaded by huge potatoes from outer space.

On Christmas I wouldn`t be too surprised if some of the kids in Milwaukie tell their parents that they saw Santa Claus high up in the sky.

According to the io9 article the local Oregon chapter of MUFON prepared an extremely long and detailed report on the sighting. If the eggheads at MUFON prepare a long report on a giant potato in the sky, I imagine they will write a book if a crank reports a normal UFO sighting.

Is it a cloud, a UFO, or a potato?

This story sounds like something you would read in a satirical Web site, but this incident is documented in the Oregon MUFON site:
