This UFO story makes three points

Hard on the heels of the Majestic document debunking comes a UFO story, courtesy of the Daily Mail, that has the silliest line I’ve seen in a long time:

The strange episode started just after 10.30pm, when the lights were seen hovering slowly over the town before three of them formed a triangular shape with one positioned just to the right.

Now, if three of them formed a square, then call me. That must take a superior intelligence.

Tip o’ the tin foil beanie to Fark. Note: I wrote this before reading the Fark comments, and others pointed out this three-pointed dumbosity as well.
