Food Time employees working across from the Blacksburg Municipal Building are still atwitter over an extraordinary happening in Blacksburg last night.
“Damn near caused me a heart attack,” said employee Hank Thimble.
“I never believed in men from Mars; now I do,” said Little Debbie Cakes delivery truck driver, Stan Brewster, after being interviewed by local police.
Both men were witnesses to the red-and-green glowing saucer (“shaped like a Moon Pie,” according to Brewster) that first parked illegally in the Blacksburg Transit’s bus stop area, and then proceeded to unleash teen aliens on the town’s public sculpture.
The juvenile delinquents from afar were clearly sending a message with their surprisingly clean and inoffensive graffiti. Indeed, one might consider the illegal act an embellishment of sorts, the two heads now given personality.

The cell phone picture below was snapped by an alert late-night Blacksburg citizen who wishes to remain anonymous. The "Moon Pie" is clearly running the traffic light at Main and Washington streets. Blacksburg bicycle police officer Chico Taco gave a spirited, yet fruitless, pursuit of the airborne craft.
Officer Taco was not amused: "If those punks ever return for a tan on my shift, I'll tan their hides greener than the Geico gecko on St. Patty's Day."
