Litt skuffet, men ikke direkte overrasket, noterer vi at gårsdagens nyhet om at hans fryktelighet ikke lenger sover kan ha vært prematur. Mindre opplyste informanter tolket selvsagt saken i lys av ufo-mytologi og media lot seg villig føre.
Nå kan The Guardian dekke over med at fortelle at blekkspruten fra oven nok ikke hadde så mye med vindmøllens fall å gjøre:
The Guardian News & Media director of digital content, Emily Bell, would like to make it clear that her family had no part in damaging any of those 65ft multimillion-pound turbine blades – but she can help explain those «massive balls of light with tentacles going right down to the ground», as one onlooker described them to the Sun.
Those mysterious lights were actually the fireworks Emily’s brother Tim had bought at the local garden centre for the 80th birthday party of dad Peter Bell. «It was a medium-sized fireworks display with absolutely no ballistics, and the fireworks were mostly dropping over my parents’ house.
Cthulhu fhtagn. Fortsatt.
