It's two, two, two dumbosities in one!

Best UFO image EVER
Yes, the best UFO footage ever.
Oh, The Sun. You make
my life so much more wonderful.

Why, you get the most wonderful -- and true -- story lede ever!

"Could this be the clearest clip yet of a UFO above our skies?"

And why is this lede so awesomely wonderful? Well, just watch the clip. I find myself agreeing: yes, a fuzzy, shaky, curse-laden video clip that lasts all of 15 seconds really is among the best UFO video footage ever.

Who would've thought The Sun would ever get something right?
