Weird, but not science obviously

The Mail reports on a clever piece of publicity (it’s all crap obviously), a report that names Birmingham the UK’s weirdest place. All sorts of odd things are revealed including an alien visit to Rowley Regis:

“The strange beings told Mrs Hingley they came “from the sky” then talked about Jesus and Tommy Steele.She offered them a tray of mince pies and they took one each before flying off to their ship, which then lifted up in the direction of Oldbury or West Bromwich.”

    (Insert obligatory complaint about Rowley Regis not being in Birmingham here)

    (Insert obligatory growl and spit here)

    That aside, the alien story was mentioned in Frank Skinner’s autobiography. It was originally reported (he says) in the newspaper ‘The Smethwick Telephone’ and allowed him to crack the classic joke:

    “In the front page story that resulted, she said she had spoke to the little green men and they had understood exactly what she said. If you’ve ever met anyone from Rowley Regis you’d know how unlikely this was”.

    Of course Rowley Regis isn’t in Birmingham, maybe that’s one of the odd temporal effects of aliens

    I read Frank’s autobiography but don’t recall that bit, I do remember him talking an awful lot about shit. Mind you not only had the version I’d got had multiple copies of some pages with some others missing, but I read Noddy Holder’s at about the same time. Noddy talked about being paid to lie under a glass table while some coprophilic shat on it, or perhaps it was an anal probe.
