It has been known, for some time, that an alien planet, two galaxies away and a little to the left, is running out of energy. Scientists fear that the aliens will seek another energy source by any means possible and have targeted earth as a possible source.
Those fears were well-founded. Sightings of small UFOs have been reported in the Pacific Northwest. Oregon, Washington, California and Idaho have been infiltrated by aliens looking for alternative energy. It has also been reported that all sighted UFOs have, mysteriously, crash landed. The aliens jumped from their faltering crafts and were immediately captured. Their spacecrafts are still being located by a crack team of alien hunters.
Reports from Acme Weird Stuff Labs, who have detained and interrogated 11 of the 12 known aliens, indicate that the green creatures aren’t cooperating with authorities but are weirdly giggly and have a ‘nanny nanny boo boo’ attitude. From what scientists can decipher from their clicks, poots and blurbles that the aliens are communicating among themselves with, it is suspected that the aliens were sent to earth to procure a bottle of Purple to synthesize it to power their planet indefinitely. Apparently Purple is high-octane enough and purpley enough to suit their needs.
The 12th alien did, in fact, gain access to a bottle of Purple. As most know the lure of Purple is great and apparently, it was the same for the alien. Unfortunately, curiosity and the lack of a liver caused the 12th alien to crash his UFO in Champoeg. Recovery teams were able to safely remove the sincerely dead alien from his UFO and part of the UFO’s dashboard from the crash scene.
The team at Ed’s Intergalactic Bang & Dent Shop were able to discover that the bottle of Purple is locked in the dashboard of the recovered UFO pieces. The dashboard seems to be transmitting a signal to the home planet and it is thought that more and better equipped aliens will invade Champoeg to retrieve the Purple.
Facing the threat of being butt deep in little green men, it is imperative that all Champoligans band together to get the bottle of Purple out of the alien dashboard and stop the signaling beacon.
The guys at Ed’s Intergalactic Bang and Dent Shop have told authorities that it appears that six to seven keys are needed to unlock the compartment that the Purple is being kept in on the alien UFO dashboard.
Authorities at Champoeg are building another crack team of Alien Hunters to find the keys to the UFO. Registered hunters will need to be able to search, using GPS coords, locate caches, solve puzzles and locate an “alien conduit” to find the keys. Information for registering will be announced at opening ceremonies.
