In an attempt to bolster tourism and a flagging economy, the tiny New England state of Connecticut has opened its arms to extraterrestrial aliens. The Nicola Tesla UFO Welcome Center was unveiled this weekend in Fairfield, CT. The new 5 acre rest stop features a semiconductor charging station, ovoid parking spaces, an electronic-disruption-free zone, 8 landing pads, and a dozen plasma refueling stations. This state of the art facility also offers a variety of fast food fare including KFC, Subway and a Cracker Barrel.
Town folk in the abutting neighborhoods came out in force to protest the UFOs and the aliens inside them. Carrying posters declaring, “This is Our Planet, Not Yours”. Spokesperson, Ray Walston, said,”Our microwave ovens are on the fritz, our pets are levitating and our lawns have large burnt patches of interlocking circles.”
When asked to comment on the neighbors concerns, Governor Malloy poo pooed what he called “hysterics” and donned a shiny, aluminum foil hat to cut the ribbon.
