It’s A Bird, It’s A Plainclothes Policeman

No, It’s Superman (We Think)

Police are investigating after villagers in Romania claimed to see a Superman-like figure flying through the sky. Almost 20 villagers, from Gemeni, Mehedinti county, claim the UFO was wearing a shiny blue suit, just like Superman's. Police officers took written statements from all of the witnesses and say they described the figure in the same way. Constantin Toader, 41, said: "He looked like Superman and was flying slowly at about 100 yards from the ground in a standing position. He didn't make any smoke or sound. Just cruising around."

FOOTNOTE: Krypton eyed.

Ahem, Mister Craver,

I'm from Scotland Yard and I'm here to tell you that you have been identified as the Superman lookalike.

Now, quickly, change in that phone box and do it again so I can video it and post it on YouTube.

Keep smiling
