Best. UFO. Explanation. Ever.

Two nights ago, hundreds of cruise passengers were distracted from an evening of dancing and drinking when thirty-year-old financial advisor Dianne Rimsky started screaming and wildly pointing to the waters off the starboard side.

“The way that woman was carrying on, I thought she had spotted an iceberg,” said vacationer David Willis.  “But when I looked where she was gesturing, I almost dropped my cocktail.”

Half a mile from the luxurious Marco Majestic, Rimsky had seen what turned out to be an ‘Unidentified Submerged Object.’

“It was large and gray,” said a still-shaken Rimsky, “and covered in multi-colored flashing lights.  And it was moving very fast.  I thought it was going to hit us – but then, suddenly, it turned and went in a different direction.”

Virtually everyone on the ship reported hearing a high-pitched burbling sound, like a porpoise on helium.  The strange object was only visible for a few minutes, during which time everyone on the ship watched in fascination.

“We had a number of theories as to what it was,” said banker Jason Green.  “Some thought it was a new type of submarine.  Others imagined that it was an alien vessel of some kind.  But based on careful study of some cellphone images I managed to grab, I believe it was simply a whale tangled in Christmas lights that had washed away in a hurricane the year before.  That seemed the most logical explanation.”

There was more, but it was really all downhill from there…
