Alien Autopsy, Asparagus and Sarcophagus News You Missed

Alien Autopsy: de gustibus non est disputandum
Translation: there is no accounting for tastes
It's a comedic spoof based on the true story, in which two British UFO enthusiasts, Gary Shoefield and Ray Santilli, attempted to convince the world in 1995 that they had film of an autopsy performed on an alien from the 1947 Roswell incident. (Alien's cold dead hand is holding emptied beer).

Eggs Benedict - Wyoming Style (with Steamed Fresh Asparagus)
Plus the recipe for the best (and easiest) hollandaise sauce ever.
"Where I grew up in Wyoming, asparagus grows wild along the irrigation ditches in the Spring time. Right around Mother's Day weekend is the best time to bring in a haul of tender, young wild spears...." (Hat tip: Gus Van Horn)

My mistake, Gus. This Bud was full. Since it is from someone's antique bottle collection, however, I will not venture a guess of its actual contents by now.

Is this a trend? First Russian Commodore Bubblehead, then me as a witness to a government cover-up of alien headwear, now Gus looking for a brew from the heavens “I hear alpha centaury hops are the best” hold the asparagus. Could a reference to Shakespeare be next?
