GROOM LAKE, NV – Mega-celeb Oprah Winfrey has been in discussions with top government officials in an attempt to purchase Area 51.

In 1947, an alien spacecraft crashed in Roswell, New Mexico and the surviving aliens were brought to the Air Force base in southern Nevada known as Area 51.  The aliens have thrived and built a community that they have called home for over 60 years.

Oprah, a long-time supporter of aliens, has done countless shows promoting alien issues.  She does tailor the shows to also be applicable to human problems but contends, “Aliens are always at the center of it all.”  There is even speculation that she took a shine to Dr. Phil because he is part alien.

Winfrey’s plan is to turn the base into a full habitat for all alien cultures.  “I want this to be a welcome mat for visitors all over this wonderful world,” exclaimed a hopeful Oprah.  “It starts with this base and, hopefully, soon the whole state of Nevada will be a refuge for travelers and outcasts from everywhere.”

So far the Air Force, the Department of Energy and the National Security Council have all turned down Winfrey.  But she hopes that her endorsement of President-Elect Barack Obama will breathe new life into the one dream that she hasn’t been able to make come true.
