LITCHFIELD, Conn. (AP) — Authorities in northwestern Connecticut say they didn't find anything after a state trooper and another person reported a large object falling out of the sky in Litchfield.

The Republican-American of Waterbury reports (http://bit.ly/HEwTYZ ) that a person driving in Litchfield at about 2 a.m. Tuesday reported that a green, glowing object the size of a whale fell from the sky and crashed into Bantam Lake. Officials say that at about the same time, a state trooper 10 miles away in Warren called dispatchers to report that something fell out of the sky and landed near Bantam or Morris.

Oh, it came out of the sky Landed just a little south of Moline
Jody fell out of his tractor Couldn’t believe what he seen

Laid on the ground and shook Fearin’ for his life

Then he ran all the way to town screamin’”It came out of the sky”

Well, a crowd gathered ‘round

And a scientist said, “It was marsh gas”

A spirit came to make a speech

About raisin’ the Mars tax

The Vatican said, “Woe, the Lord has come”

Hollywood rushed out an epic film

An’ Ronnie the popular said, “It was a communist plot”

So al Gore went for a dip to escape the effects of Global Warming. What’s wrong with that?

***Better watch out for Triffids...****

I read that book and saw that movie years ago!

In the book they never found something to battle the Triffids. In the movie they did.

My family has a cottage on that lake and my brother is a trooper that works at that barracks. He told me they have no idea what it could have been. I will have the music theme from Jaws playing in my head when I fall in the water while water skiing. Keep a look out for a big green whale with rabies.

This is Connecticut.

If they find any Triffids, they will run them as Democrats and elect them to the legislature.

We already have a Democrat-infested, carnivorous, parasitic legislature that loves nothing better than paralyzing and sucking the lifeblood out of their hard-working, ever-suffering hosts.

Would we even notice the difference?

Even more bizarre than a green glowing object that falls from the sky is the fact that Michelle wears a sleeveless summer frock in December.
