Third Weird Creature Sighted in Los Alamos

As we were walking down Trinity Drive we met up with another unusual creature, the third sighted in Los Alamos in the the last month.  
 
This one was headed toward Crossroads Bible Church and we were delighted “It” was willing to talk with us.   
 
Ambassador Geriton from the sulfurous planet Marndock has been invited to Los Alamos along with the previous weird creatures, Ambassadors Dannyborg and Ramseed to participate in a U.F.F.D.A conference.
 
We were promised an interview within the week with more details.

Second Strange Being Sighted in Los Alamos!

The second weird creature has been sighted in Los Alamos in as many weeks. “It” was sighted lurking around the Los Alamos Little Theater attempting to enter through a side door. “It” appeared to be a “Lovable Creature” but seemed to find English difficult. “It” appears to be a carrodactyl flying-carrot-type radiculose from the planet Radicule by the name of Ramseed. People are beginning to question whether Los Alamos is being invaded. Contact the Los Alamos Daily Post if you observe any unusual creatures roaming about town.
