Alien Landing

In mid-November 2003, Elcio Berti, the eccentric Brazilian mayor of Bocaiuva do Sul, announced that he was cancelling a planned landing by an alien spaceship during a forthcoming Brazil-Peru soccer match. "I cancelled the landing," he explained, "because I was worried they might abduct one of the Brazilian footballers."

[Berti, who claimed to have convinced aliens to help with the construction of a UFO landing pad in the town, first made headlines after issuing a decree banning birth control in Bocaiuva do Sul -- in a bid to boost the number of pregnancies and thereby increase federal funding.]
