Mel Gibson vs. The Spacemen part 2: Maybe He’s Not Nuts?

Well folks, someone is nuts here, and maybe it isn’t Mel Gibson. A few days ago, you’ll recall Oh Faithful Reader, that I posted a blog in which I may have implied that Mel Gibson was being targeted by aliens who keep attacking his lawn.  Fiction? Perhaps not.

Man hit by six meteorites is being ‘targeted by aliens’

A Bosnian man who claims he is being targeted by extraterrestrials after a series of meteorite strikes on his house has now been hit by a sixth space rock in the space of a few years.

The Meteorite Man. What did he do to piss off the aliens?

Radivoje Lajic first came to international attention in 2008, shortly after the fifth meteorite had crashed into the roof of his house in the northern village of Gornji Lajici.

And now, within the past month, another rock has hit the roof of his house, in defiance of all the odds – making it six strikes since the plague of meteorites began in 2007.

Experts at Belgrade University have confirmed that all the falling rocks he has handed over were meteorites. They are now trying to work out what exactly it is about his house that particularly attracts them. The strikes always happen when it is raining heavily, he says, never when there are clear skies.

Lajic has his own explanation, of course. After the fifth rock struck his house, he said: ‘I am obviously being targeted by extraterrestrials. I don’t know what I have done to annoy them but there is no other explanation that makes sense. The chance of being hit by a meteorite is so small that getting hit six times has to be deliberate.’

50-year-old Lajic has had a steel girder reinforced roof put on the house to protect it from the alien bombardment – which he funded by selling one of the meteorites to a university in the Netherlands.

‘I have no doubt I am being targeted by aliens,’ he adds. ‘They are playing games with me. I don’t know why they are doing this. When it rains I can’t sleep for worrying about another strike.’

While this man is no Mel Gibson, may I remind you that Mel Gibson is no Radivoje Lajic. And if Average Joe Bosnian can be the target of extra-terrestrial attacks, is it so hard to believe that Average Lunatic Racist Mel Gibson could be under attack? We all remember his last film, The Passion of the Xergib, in which he portrayed all Hys’tr’A-Yans as evil Xergib killers. Is it too hard to believe they are leaving protest crop circles on his lawn? Perhaps not.

Just to be safe, I burned my copy of What Women Want. That film sucked anyway.
