ET Bilu, the Brazilian alien

I want to believe in ET Bilu! He only appears at night, crouching among the bushes and talking in a squeaky voice. Oh, and he can also teleport. He's got a site. Here's a pic.

I think I actually pulled an eye-rolling muscle on this one. I really hope the Cosmic Overlords have better communication strategies that a Portugese-speaking Elmo impersonator squatting in the jungle.

I, for one, welcome our Portugese-speaking Elmo impersonators squatting in the jungle.

Squatting in the Jungle is my favorite Creedence song.

This is great. I am going to scare the crap out of my 8-year-old son with this post.

Producers were required to eat a healthy diet of organic products only. Processed foods have toxic additives and can seriously jeopordize human health. Avoiding these kinds of products is essential for successful close encounters, and this is one of the most important keys for sustaining contact.

I'm sure the SETI guys and UFO enthusiasts everywhere are kicking themselves now. They've been fooled for nearly 30 years into thinking Reese's Pieces were the key to sustained ET contact.

All I could think about with the shell were the three seashells in Demolition Man.

Dear Aliens-

Please stop teasing the hicks, it was funny at first but frankly, it's starting to look mean. Also, if you could try landing and presenting yourselves in daylight without hiding behind a bush, you might get a little more credibility.

Klaatu barada nikto!

There has been a lot of really interesting UFO nut stuff going on recently. My go to source for this is Coast to Coast of course, but for the last year and a half or so it's leaning heavily on the new-age/ron paul demographic. They haven't really touched a lot of the recent revelations, 'cept for maybe the Area 51 docs. I would much rather drift into dreamland hearing breathless tales of Bilu squeaking outside the window that another program about angels and buying gold.

Anyway, what a cutie. I wish the youtube clips had less audio artifacts and narration, it really gets in the way of the mystery/fun for me.

I thought all aliens were only allowed to land/show up in the USA. Obviously a fake.

There are no UFO nuts quite as annoying as the hippie new age ones.

Back in '95, I lived in Curitiba, Brazil. I had a favorite vegetarian lunch buffet downtown. Very large restaurants were popular in the south; this place sat about 200. One day the entire second floor was taken up by a very strange group--different ages and backgrounds, all wearing name tags and dressed sloppily (which is unusual for Curitiba) and all with a deer-in-the-headlights look to them. Closer inspection revealed that they were the Brazilian association of UFO abductees. Whatever country they visit, the aliens seem to prefer a certain type.

Is it just me, or does that pic bear a more than a passing resemblance to the Melkur?

Well, that was convincing. And in the next thrilling episode he's going to tell us about god and Jesus, eh? That's going to be even more convincing.

I think this whole thing was a set up for pracowity's bon mot. Which is fine by me!

All Bilu wants is the bear necessities of life.
