ANCHOVIES WASH ASHORE IN MEXICO!


ACAPULCO, Mexico – Millions of anchovies are washing ashore in Mexico!

Masses of anchovies – with bunches of  stripped bass and mackerel – washed ashore in this Mexican resort city.  They were packed so tightly near the surface they looked like an oil slick from above.

Thrilled fishermen rushed out in wooden motor boats, abandoning their rods and nets and simply scooping the fish up with buckets.

“It was so much fun. There were about 20 or 30 fishermen and there were people who came with their kids to take advantage of it,” fisherman Carlos Morales said.

The fishermen attributed the strange phenomenon to the unusual currents unleashed bytsunami that followed the earthquake in Japan.

“Who knows?” said Rich Briggs, a geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey. “Tsunamis can change local currents, but it’s hard to make a firm connection.”Experts couldn’t be sure.  But John Malley, the expert on the U.N. Panel on Extraterrestrials flew to Acapulco to determine if the death of the anchovies was caused by aliens from Planet Zeeba.

“All the dead anchovies, had The Mark of the Alien,”  Malley told WWN.  “These anchovies were definitely killed by aliens from Planet Zeeba. This is all part of the ongoing alien invasion.”

Dominoes has once again volunteered to scoop up the anchovies and put them on their pizzas.  Asked whether they thought that their customers may not like the fact that the anchovies have alien DNA, a spokesman for Dominoes said, “there’s been no proof that eating alien DNA causes harm.  Besides, there’s all sorts of other DNA in our pizzas, so a little extra DNA can’t hurt.”

If you want to see a big pile of anchovies… rush on down to Acapulco for Spring Break.

Anchovies up!!
