Since the start of the New Year, in a small Arkansas town, thousands of black birds have dropped dead from the sky. . . .
While nearby, in a stretch of the Arkansas River, 100,000 fish have floated up dead to the river's surface.. . . .
No one yet knows what has caused these mass deaths, nor is ayone able to explain their seemingly coincidental connection in both geography and time.
Instapundit notes that the people at Infowars speculate that this is the result of secret government weapons testing, but he is sure they have it all wrong. The good prof. is convinced . . .
. . . that these deaths were caused by the Susumi radiation from a stealthed alien spaceship, which is lethal to anything with a circulatory system or a spinal cord. Usually they avoid this kind of incident by keeping their flight paths clear of bird flocks and not swooping too low over rivers and lakes, but, you know, science being science regardless of species most of the actual gruntwork of studying us naturally gets farmed down to grad students, and sometimes they slip up. . . ."
Gov't black ops? Space alien grad students? I don't know if either has it right. Here is a pic taken in central Arkansas on New Year's day.
It leads me to suspect yet a third alternative explanation . . .
