Pretty much all of you have sent in this story about wallabies who wander into poppy fields, get loaded, and then hop around and around until they make crop circles that gullible people think were actually made by a race of hyper-intelligent aliens with nothing better to do. Apparently the same behavior has been observed in sheep, but they’re not as funny as wallabies so they don’t make it into the headline, nor are they pictorially represented in this blog post, as such:
While I was going to leave the dragon-chasing wallabies as good, clean Quickie-fodder, the sheer tsunami of tips people are sending convinced me a full post is needed. I have very little to add to the story, except this: from now on, when someone offers you an anecdote to support their personal wacky theory, whether it concerns aliens buzzing cornfields or ghosts haunting mansions or NASA faking moon landings, your number one response should now be “maybe it was a doped-up wallaby.” You never know.
(Seriously, thanks to all of you who sent this one in, and all of you who continue to send in your tips! You guys are great.)
