These things? I vaguely remember seeing these with the same nonsense attached to them like ten years ago. Didn't Däniken talk about them in one of his books? Or is my memory jumbled again?

Never underestimate the mythic lure of the ancient astronaut. 

I consider the mark of a good pseudoscience (read ridiculous but compelling)  when it makes me think, the first time I hear about it, 'That would probably be a fun Spielberg Movie.'

Just make sure George Lucas keeps his dirty mitts off it.

For some reason, I think it looks like a statue of Gizmo with the ears broken off. But alas, the Mogwai are **Chinese** creatures. But then, if the Mogwai were actually astronauts, who's to say a few didn't splash down and wash up on the coast of Japan?
