Official Italian Government Report: Aliens Blew Up My Fridge (or Satan)

October 29th, 2007 by Steven Gould

Janice Gelb pointed this out on her Smofbabe LiveJournal. From The Scotsman:

A GOVERNMENT investigation into a series of unexplained fires in fridges, televisions and mobile phones in an Italian village has concluded that the responsibility lies with “aliens testing secret weapons”.

In scenes similar to the drama series The X-Files, Canneto di Caronia on Sicily was the centre of world attention three years ago after residents reported everyday household objects – electrical appliances, a pile of wedding presents and furniture – bursting into flames.

Dozens of experts including scientists, electrical engineers and military experts, arrived in the village, in the north of the island, to investigate. One amazed scientist reported seeing an unplugged electrical cable burst into flames.

Arson was ruled out while locals blamed supernatural forces and the Vatican’s chief exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth suggested it was Satan’s work.

So, next time Brad needs to do some home repairs he should get this guy to help.

(My Dad, a big fan of “Ask Mr. Helpful Guy” sent this to me as a Windows Media File but I found it up on YouTube, hooray!) I bet this guy would be great against zombies!
