The UFO Hunters convention, held near Carisbrooke Castle on the Isle of Wight, boasted thousands attending. Enthusiasts from around the world gathered to share pet conspiracy theories. Suddenly, someone pointed skyward into the fog…and screamed.
Chaos erupted as people reacted differently to the UFO. Many ran for cover, some wrote signs reading, “Welcome!” Another sign read, “Take me, but no anal probes!”
Aboard the world’s largest airship, tasked with hauling building maintenance materials to Carisbrooke Castle, the Captain glared through his binoculars at the chaotic scene below. He shook his head. “What awful timing!”
The copilot shrugged, “Don’t worry! Who takes UFO freaks seriously?”
The American president, whose fascination with Twitter was legendary, stared at his cell phone. To him, his friend’s tweet was clear. He turned to his top general. “Take us to DEFCON 1, and prepare a nuclear strike on the Isle of Wight.”

I couldn’t resist, folks. Not with an apparent UFO visible just above the castle.
Hybrid Air Vehicles makes the world’s largest airship, designed for cargo hauling. Originally intended for the US Army, the project was cancelled in 2013. Recently, the UK provided funds to get the project, “off the ground” again. Who knows what people would think of it.
