Subject: Lawyers & Ufology


As the question of legal involvement in ufology rears its ugly
head again, m'learned friends may be interested the following
item from the 31 August 07 issue of the UK's Private Eye
magazine 'Funny Old World' column, compiled by Victor Lewis-
Smith

"Two years ago, a space ship sucked me up into its interior,"
Paul Hoffmann told reporters in Dresden, "and carried me off
into space. The aliens probed my anus and genitalia, then
manipulated my brain and sent me back to earth as an apprentice
shaman, to bless the city in advance of the arrival of further
aliens. Following their orders, I closed my bank account, bathed
naked in a municipal fountain, then rode my bicycle naked
through the streets of Dresden, at which point I was arrested by
police and sent to a psychiatric hospital. But I have done
nothing wrong. I am a victim of aliens, and I demand my
freedom."

Hoffmann's lawsuit against Dresden city council is being handled
by Jens Lorek, a lawyer specialising in alien abductions. "My
client's strange behaviour was caused by `things unknown,' and
there are no grounds for putting somebody in a psychiatric
hospital simply because they've been manipulated by aliens. The
state is socially responsible, even for alien shamans, if it
cannot protect them from abduction. Since 1961, there have been
thousands of alien abductions, and as Germany's first lawyer for
victims of extraterrestrial harassment, I am determined to
secure justice for my clients. Not all of them though. Earlier
this year, I was hired by a Mrs J, who told me she'd been
abducted by an alien life form that glowed bright green, smelled
of coconuts, and jabbed her repeatedly in the shoulder, leaving
little white dots. She was crazy"
