r-AliensAmongUs Subreddit Proves We are Not Alone - Odd Nugget
Reddit has a wealth of hidden nooks that make for many a night spent curled up with a thousand-yard stare. But, the AliensAmongUs subreddit is a special place...
This special place is where special people are documented and deemed to be aliens.
Humor is the sub's most obvious undertone, but some of the sightings are more than a little unsettling.
Humorous, Sarcastic or Probe in Cheek?
So, apparently, this entire subreddit was created after a single observant comment was made about an image featuring a woman decked out in baseball apparel, smiling awkwardly at a FIFA World Cup game.
The image in question:
The legendary comment that started it all:
ALIEN ATTEMPTS TO ASSIMILATE
And just like that, the fuse was lit. The second direct response laid the groundwork and a very strange new subreddit was born.
This needs to become a sub. It'd be photos of people who look out of place trying to fit in. Who can come up with a good sub name?
Many questionable names were suggested, but AliensAmongUs rose above the rest to reign supreme - not unlike the E.T. overlords documented therein will when they finally cast off their human guises to rule over us as gods.
This subreddit is a treasure trove of strange behavior that belongs either in a seedy circus somewhere or on a distant moon in the Andromeda galaxy.
More than anything, the bulk of what one might find on this bizarre corner of Reddit is, well, bizarre. And not necessarily in a good way...
The Kind of Thing Your Eyes Want to Look Away From
Don't worry, although the image above is entirely horrifying, it is actually also SFW - that's some guy's belly button.
And, no, you're not alone in never wanting to see it again. I hardly had the heart to post it here.
Oh, and that's a screenshot from a full video of him proving just how not human his human body can be.
In the original thread, a few users seem to have cracked the code on this shapeshifter's deceit, though:
YES, I STICK MY BELLYBUTTON OUT LIKE A HUMAN WOULD AND NOT A ZOGNOID!
THIS IS CERTAINLY MY HUMAN BELLY BUTTON, NOT MY ANTENNAE, AS A ZOGNOID WOULD HAVE.
Other aliens fail the "are you human" test in less overtly disgusting ways. Typically, it's their disguise doing things humans don't normally do that gives them away.
I almost feel bad for this obvious alien. She was caught in a surprisingly lengthy video showing her inability to control her malfunctioning fake face.
Either that or she was simply a real politician coked out of her mind.
Among the many alien encounters documented on AliensAmongUs is an Austrian Krampus parade. Krampus being Santa's evil, child-murdering cohort.
And Austrians being themselves...
Not to be outdone, an assortment of sideshow attractions are trotted out as well, like turbo tongue here...
Or this human-suit-wearing alien roaming a cold city:
And whoever made this CD:
It's just... Too. Much.
By now, you may actually be wondering if the M.I.B. keep their eyes on this subreddit for tips on undocumented planetary tourists.
I certainly am.
I'm also wondering why so many humans are capable of being so very weird with no limit on variety or poor taste.
But, I'm not quite interested enough to dig any further.
