Over 1 million people have pledged to raid Area 51 on a fake facebook event called Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All Of Us. Fake or not, it’s good to know that yes, they can stop all of you. The US Air Force has already responded.
A spokesperson for Area 51 commented to the Washington Post: “[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces,” a spokeswoman told The Washington Post. “The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.”
The event page creator(s) stand firmly by their statement that it is just a joke, and meant to build a page for UFC and conspiracy theory memes. They event pinned a memo on their event page to make it clear: “P.S. Hello US government, this is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan. I just thought it would be funny and get me some thumbsy uppies on the internet,”. After further research, Money Talk Radio can confirm that ‘thumbsy uppies’ is not proper human grammar, but we cannot confirm that it is not extraterrestrial grammar.
As dumb as this all sounds, we all won because the memes that have circulated the web since this hoax broke into the mainstream have delivered on all levels of entertainment and thought provocation. Here are some of our favorites:
