Mitchell and Webb and that alien look

| »

Why has the government not come forth with its ultra-secret plans concerning the covering-up of Roswell and what’s really going on in Area 51?

I agree with Phil Plait’s proposed improvement:

I would’ve changed one single line: "Fortunately the aliens landed somewhere very remote which is also a well-known top secret Army base," adding "… where we also happen to be doing high-altitude atomic bomb detection research using weather balloons that, when crashed, look very much like flying saucers."

Might’ve felt a bit like a run-on sentence, though.
