August Contest! A is for Alien

It’s time for our August contest!  This month’s prize is the best prize yet:  an autographed copy of Jill’s Skepchick Calendar photo!  2008 calendars are all sold out, so if you haven’t already ordered one, this may be your only chance to see Jill in all her dripping-wet Miss August Sexiness. And those of you who already have a 2008 calendar know that having your own autographed copy is going to mean clearing out some space under your mattress.  (Yet tasteful enough to hang on your grandmother’s living room wall.)

Before we get to the contest, let me remind everyone that tomorrow night is the Chicago Meet Up: details here.  If you’re attending, you’re already a winner!*

Back to the contest.

This month it’s easy!  All you have to do is give us some photographic proof of extra terrestrial visitors here on Earth! 

While we prefer real photographic proof, we’re not going to deduct points for any faked photos photos that may require Photoshop for “editorial touch ups”.

We only require that the evidence be your own work and that you get your entry in by the time the clock strikes September at Skepchick HQ (that’s EDT for those of you not in the know).

Also, I’m offering one billion dollars in Skepchick Cash** for anyone who can tell me the origin of the photographs in this post.

*Even though you’re a winner in my book, you still have to enter this contest to get an autographed picture of Jill.
**Disclaimer: Skepchick Cash is redeemable for love and affection
from Skepchicks and is non-transferrable.

    These are production stills from the The Lost Skeleton Returns Again!, Larry Blamire’s sequel to The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra.

    As regards photographic proof of extraterrestrial visitors, I refer you to this recent post by the Brazilian investigator Kentaro Mori.

  2. Oh, nuts. Well, I don’t need love and affection anyway. I’m a lone wolf, if you will. Like the cheese, I stand alone. (I figured out the correct answer — duh! — but I’ll leave for it for someone who needs love and affection more than I do.

    Mori is great — one of my favorite skeptics (present company excluded), a Latin American SCICOP officer, and, if you read Portuguese (I’m trying to learn), he’s all over o blogosfério brasileiro as well.

    Skepchick$1,000,000,000 is yours!

    I’m giving out more billions to anyone who goes out and rents Lost Skeleton this weekend! (negative billions to anyone who skips the Chicago meet up to watch it, though)


    The easiest way to track them is to run naked while ginning mischievously and pointing to the sky.

  4. Watch the movie. It’s terrible and awesome and hilarious and terrible. Seriously. MST3K-at-home.

    Do I win if I get a video of that instead of alien pics?

  5. If you don’t win, we’ll be sure to get you a prize.

    How many autographs do you need from us anyway? We’ve already signed your chest, your face and ( i think) your butt.

  6. How many autographs do you need from us anyway?

    All of them. I have you, Rebecca, A, V, Teek, Stacey, and Masala so far. That’s nothing like a complete set.

  7. preferably of the actual alien. but if all you could get was the space ship because their alien powers rendered your camera unusable, then just give us what you’ve got :)

  8. Not the Mutant! And the Dance of the Skeleton Weddding! Noooo! It’s too much for me, and I’m a scientist!

  9. Well from this clip you can see that not only do aliens visit, but a method of defending oneself against a probing….

  10. I submit as evidence the origin of my gravatar: the alien baby of Pergamino! A local lady exhibits it in her shop. Don’t let the fact that it looks like a stuffed rayfish fool you: the “prestigious” Argentine ufologist Fabio Zerpa said on national TV that it is an interdimensional being! Zerpa wouldn’t lie on TV! Not this time!

  11. Sorry if I’m being Mr Dumbo, but where do we send the pics? I hacked into the Pentagon this morning and found one that will shake society to its foundations.

  12. Will a crop circle do? Some people see them as proof of alien life. Strange, lonely people obsessed with geometry but people nonetheless.

    I don’t have a crop circle but I do have a rabbit and a guinea pig and sometimes they trim the grass in odd patterns….I mean aliens leave patterns in my lawn in their alien language, Alienese.
