Alien Highway In Nevada

Stan Freberg here. Well, aliens from other planets will be happy to hear this: the state of Nevada has put aside a special highway just for extra-terrestrials! But, since you aliens can read my mind, you already know that. However, Earth people may be interested in hearing about this, when I come back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg again. Yes, 140 miles northeast of Las Vegas, a special highway has been put aside for alien spacecrafts to land. Nevada 375 has been officially christened "The Extra-Terrestrial Highway." Nevada Governor Bob Miller suggested that the oversized highway signs--they're eight feet square--be placed flat on the ground, so the aliens can land on them! Now you're talking, Governor!

Highway 375 also runs just outside a top secret Air Force range, known informally as "Area 51." Hmm. The blacktop runs through an isolated swatch of desert that has long been a mecca for UFO seekers from around the world. Locals and visitors tell of seeing spaceships with odd lights travelling at warp speed.

The fact that all these sightings are close to a secret installation, where experimental aircraft are believed to be tested, has only fueled rumors that the military is testing captured spaceships, which the government denies. Of course they do.

Meanwhile, all you extra-terrestrials landing on Highway 375, have a nice light year.
