Doll Mistaken For Alien
More news from Ananova, though there's nothing inherently unbelievable in this story:

A burnt rubber doll was mistaken for a badly injured alien and taken to a hospital in Brazil. It happened after people in Aracruz found a burnt 'body' on the ground after seeing a fireball fall from the sky.
A police spokesman told Terra Noticias Populares: "Many people were terrified thinking that an alien invasion was taking place. "They thought the doll was a burnt ET and more than 50 people called the station."
The 'alien' was taken to the local hospital where doctors soon confirmed it was a burnt rubber doll. A hospital spokesman said: "It was obviously a practical joke but we wonder who would do that in such a small and quiet town."


This reminds me of the story of the Great Monkey Hoax.

You become a legend if you do something stupid enough in a small town. They've got nothin else to talk about.

Well, I would have got a real alien, set it on fire, then drop it out of the sky. That would have been more realistic......uh yeah
