Did Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtin and Michelle Burke get the idea for their extraterrestrial Conehead Family sketches from the USPOD? For those whose memories are faulty and those born too late here is a quick reminder video of the Conehead Family:

We as humans have wondered if we were alone in the Universe. But we have the answer thanks to the new US Government release of UFO video and written reports of observations.

Below is one of the earliest US Government documentations of an extraterrestrial lifeform. As the same time it answers the question, is anyone who desires to be a POTUS fully human?

As you can read, the USPOD tried to coverup this proof of extraterrestrials with a discussion of eggs and farm stock.


But the proof is in the image here-

Quite an eye-catching oddity! It must have happened after it was printed and cut, as the shape of the card is also extended. Makes me think of the carnival penny presses.

Yes, I have always thought aliens are among us - sometimes they slip up.

It's quite remarkable that the dealer then went out of his way to find a pre-cut label with a similarly distorted shape on which to write the item description. (Where's an eye-roll emoji when you need one?)

My guess is movement during scanning but it makes a fun thread with a wonderfully odd illustration.

Looking again at the front and back scans, the reverse shows a sharp/steep length extension at the postal card upper left edge, whereas the obverse shows a gradual extension of the top edge. A funny shown example, but clearly photo-shopped or somehow manipulated by scanning as wayner_11 and Parcelpostguy mention.

Although this cancel suggests McKinley might have been Jewish...

Edit:

Not to mention there was a Jewish minority in the what is now the Baltic States but previously included Livonia. Perhaps the POTUS' heritage is also being tipped on you postal card.

The postal card shown, US POSTAL CARD 1906 HORTONVILLE,IN.DPO CV122_P11, listed on eBay with the photos posted above sold today for $5.05 plus $1.20 shipping. Wonder if the seller will get a return when it arrives normal to the buyer?
