ocular illusions of the fertile mind

Just what was that object seen hurtling into the sky over the Southern California coast?

Was it a missile fired by a foreign submarine? A meteor? Ironman? My first thought was - I wonder if little Falcon, of baloon boy fame, has been located, or if he is hiding under his bed again?

“There is no evidence to suggest that this is anything else other than a condensation trail from an aircraft,” according to a Pentagon spokesman.

Looks too big of a contrail to be coming from a commercial jet liner... unless, of course, one of the passengers is the perpetually tanned John Boehner sneaking a smoke in the john. Mystery solved.


  1. I just assumed it had something to do with Nancy Pelosi. I never expected her to go down without making an ugly scene.

  2. The explanation that it's a contrail sounds fishy to me, but there's nothing I can do about it. Me, I can't get the Obama administration out of office fast enough to suit me.

  3. RK, Can't be her. Pelosi takes a solar-powered private jet (at least when the broom is in the shop)
    cube, The sooner, the better on that. I'm also suspicious with this explanation. These guys are very adept at sleight-of-hand ocular illusions, and daily insist we disbelieve our lying eyes.
