peru mummy alien skull 'Alien' skull found in Peru: Indiana Jones would know what to do!We’re taking this entire story with a grain of salt, but, hey… if the Thanksgiving dinner conversation comes to a grinding halt tomorrow, you’ll be glad you read this.

Unconfirmed reports of a strangely shaped skull found in Peru hit the web on Tuesday (Nov. 22). Apparently, anonymous scientists — who we’re not entirely sure exist — have “confirmed” that it’s an “extraterrestrial being.”

The skull is strangely elongated (hello, “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”) and, according to Yahoo News, the head is nearly as long as the 20-inch body to which it is attached. Initially, it was believed to be the body of a child with a deformity, but now… cue “The X-Files” theme music, please.

We’re going to go ahead and assume that if scientists had discovered actual proof of extraterrestrial beings — especially ones that look almost exactly like the dudes from “Mars Attacks” — those scientists would want to actually take credit for their findings. Still, the photos of the skull are rather remarkable.

What do you think, Zappers? Real deal?
