Soviet news agency reports landing of outer-space aliens in 1989

25 years ago today(Oct. 13): You can't believe what you read in the papers:

 "Moscow (AP) — It was a close encounter of the humanoid kind. Towering, tiny-headed humanoids from outer space landed their UFO in the Russian city of Voronezh and emerged for a promenade around the park, spreading fear among residents. At least that's what the official Soviet news agency, Tass, said. Tass, contributing to a string of weird tales that have crept into the formerly stuffy state-controlled media, said in a straight-faced report that Soviet scientists vouched for the UFO's landing." Said a Tass spokesman, "It is not April Fool's Day today."
