Here's the moral of the story: DO NOT believe everything you read on the Internet. If I were to read something like this, I'd search online for more details.
Actually, I'd not fall for this anyway. And you wouldn't if you're smart. Weekly World News looks like a scam anyway. Just look at their other news for instance (pictured to the right). Also, if you look at their About page, you'll laugh like crazy. Here's an excerpt:
Don’t believe everything you read. Unless you read it here at www.weeklyworldnews.com Since 1979, we have protected civilians from Alien slime. If you care about the future of our world, this is the only place on earth you can learn about:
- UFO activity
- classified government cover-ups
- Bigfoot movements
- Secret science experiments paid for by pharmaceutical companies
- Cryptic findings
And there were people who fell for this. I hope you didn't. If you did, remember: the next time you see something like this, search online first.
I am not the only one reporting on this rumor, actually. Here's another site.
Now that you're here, connect to this blog on social networks, or at least have a look around.
