Uh, Internet? You’re messing up. Your job is to find the stupid things that people say and do on a daily basis, and spread them around the world at the speed of farts so that bored people in their offices have something to do instead of their work. So please explain to me how it has been almost TWO WEEKS since Larry King did an ENTIRE EPISODE about whether or not ALIENS ARE REAL and if THEY ARE GOING TO VISIT THE EARTH, an episode including a lengthy interview with DAN AYKROYD, yes, DAN AYKROYD, proprietor of CRYSTAL SKULL VODKA INC., who claimed that aliens were real but that they weren’t going to visit Earth because of SEPTEMBER 11TH, 2001, and also that they were “breaking the law” and should BE ARRESTED, to which Larry King, another grown adult human being, responded, “how do we arrest them?” and this is the FIRST I AM HEARING ABOUT IT? Helllloooo? Bueller? McFly? Anyone?

Evidence of this very real, very overlooked, very amazing thing that I basically just ruined by describing it in full after the jump:

Read the sign, Internet. If you have time to lean, you have time to PAY ATTENTION. (Thanks for the tip, Adam.)

  1. Mr. Space Alien… good evening. As a duly designated representative of the City, County and State of New York, I order you to cease any and all extraterrestrial activity and return forthwith to your place of origin or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension.

  2. At least Akroyd has his priorities straight: Stop Texting while driving then handle the Alien invaders.

  3. I always thought aliens lost interest in earth after the 2001 broadcast premiere of ‘Spice World’.

  4. I’ll have whatever Dan Akroyd is having.

  5. “We broke our toys in the sandbox” – Dan Aykroyd, Master of Metaphors, 1952-2012

  6. Dan Oncrackroyd?

  7. “so how do you arrest them?” he says while trying to hide his smile.
    - Larry King live, the Novelization.

  8. No, no no! Dan Aykroyd, you bust ghosts, not aliens! Ghosts!

  9. Marty, find out where the police are going to be taking Dan Akroyd. Send over a bottle of bubbly with a bucket of ice and a card. Have it say, “Tough break, get drunk on me. Use the bucket to ice down your marbles, Yours, The Internet.”

  10. He sure got old and crazy.

    • Listen, the guy has Asperger’s Syndrome. Let’s all cut him a bit of slack for being quirky.

      • I know you probably didn’t mean it this way, but your comment came across to me as “people with Asperger’s are weird, but it’s okay for them to be weird.” Asperger’s syndrome refers primarily to people who have difficulty with social interactions, and difficulty interpreting and responding “appropriately” to behavioral and nonverbal cues. By saying quirky, even though it’s pretty innocuous, you are still imposing a judgment that perpetuates a negative view of people with Asperger’s.

    • Have you ever seen the making-of documentary for the Ghostbusters DVD? The guy gives such an amazing interview, where he basically said that he wrote Ghostbusters as a CAUTIONARY TALE TO HIS CHILDREN TO LET THEM KNOW THAT GHOSTS ARE REAL AND WILL HURT THEM. I’m not even joking. So he didn’t even get old and crazy, he got old and STAYED crazy.

  11. It is good to keep in mind who’s looking at things through the “entertainment filter” as opposed to, I guess, the “facts filter”. Entirely different conclusions may be drawn depending on your filter of preference.

  12. The good guys dress in black remember that
    Just in case we ever face to face and make contact
    The title held by me — M.I.B.
    Means what you think you saw, you did not see

  13. Fun Fact: Dan Aykroyd wrote Ghostbusters in part based on his family’s history of speaking with ghosts through seances and mediums.

    Dan Aykroyd is pretty much gunning for Art Bell’s job at this point.

  14. Finally a common cause for the thuthers and birthers! Akroyders unite!

  15. nuff said… Beldar.

  16. Dan Aykroyd thinks Ghost Busters was a documentary. I’ve seen him on Larry talking about it before and he told a story where he said he saw a ghost fly out of a tuba when he was a kid. I am not making that up.

    • Oh man, if I become a ghost, that is exactly what I’m going to fly out of.

    • Yeah, on the Ghostbusters DVD there’s a thing where this auto shop repairs the original GHOSTBUSTERS car, and Dan Aykroyd comes in and checks it out and basically talks about how seeing the car again reminded him of all of those times they BUSTED GHOSTS IN THE CAR. I’m not sure if he was joking or in character, and you could tell that all of the auto shop guys are freaked out as hell, but he’s basically like, YOU KNOW, DRIVIN’ AROUND…WITH THE GUYS…..EGON….WE DID A LOT OF GOOD IN THIS CAR. WE BUSTED A LOT OF GHOSTS.

  17. Not to make light of 9/11, but holy shit, if the aliens are observing us there is plenty of shit perpetrated daily that should tip them off we are not “worthy” of their friendship or whatever it is Dan Ackroyd thinks they want to offer us.

  18. I will keep texting while driving, just to keep the aliens away and safe from violating 18 USC section 1202. Actually, I will not. But I will see Ghostbusters 3, which is probably the psychic equivalent of texting while driving.

  19. Well, that’s the last time I buy his wine.

  20. “23 different species are coming, because they don’t want anything to do with us.”

  21. So wait, I am confused guys…Aliens are REAL and they should be arrested BUT they aren’t a threat and also, drive better…huh? Is Dan Aykroyd just confusing aliens with teenagers?

    The fokkin prawns are already here and you don’t need to ask how to arrest them because they get arrested all the time because they fokkin oppressed jou naai!

  23. “How do we arrest these aliens?”
    Arizona called; they say they have some ideas.

  24. So is the “entertainment filter” the same thing that causes Dan Aykroyd to eat bugs and howl at shoelaces for baffling him?

  25. He needs to thank his lucky stars (ha!) that he’s famous and still has Ghostbusters royalties coming in. Anyone else who goes bat-shit crazy like this just ends up drooling on the el and having conversations with their reflection in department store windows.

  26. ACKROYD: They only land in isolated places. They have taken people, I believe…
    KING: (interrupting) What did they do with the food?

  27. “UFO NETWORK CONSULATANT”? What the crapap?

  28. I think one day, we will look back like in an alien/disaster movie and see Ray Stantz as the guy who tried to warn us; and we all mocked him.

    Then he will fly into the heart of the alien spaceship and save us all…

    RAY! I’m ready to believe you!

  29. Were those even real sentences?

  30. What the actual hell is wrong with you people?
    Do you not know what a UFO is?

    Does it make a person insane to see something in our vast sky that they are unable to identify?
    Better question: Can YOU identify everything you have ever seen in the sky? What if you saw something in the sky you and nobody of any credible authority could identify? IT WOULD BE CALLED A UFO!

    But I guess only a drug addict has any logic these days. ¬_¬
