Over the last several days, YouTube has gone absolutely bonkers over footage of an alien corpse found in the Russian village of Kamensk. Sadly, this body has more in common with a chicken nugget than ET.

The fellow who supposedly stumbled upon the alien confessed when the police came a-knocking. From Russia Today:

The tiny "dead alien" is just skin from chicken filled with bread, reports the website 7d.org.ua. Police questioned the men who claimed to have found the "body" and they allegedly confessed to creating it themselves.

The chief editor of the local Kabansk-Info newspaper initially thought that it was the body of an infant in the video and alerted the police. Officers immediately started the investigation and identified the alleged author.

They went to his house and asked him about the infant's body. The scared man reportedly showed a fake alien corpse. It was even painted in "alien colors". Scolding is the only possible punishment for such a stunt as it cannot be considered a crime, the report says.

Of course, some folks desperately want this delicious breaded manikin to be the real deal, but we've gleaned a valuable lesson from this incident, xenobiological investigators. If you ever encounter a dubious-looking extraterrestrial corpse, eat the body. Sure, you'll be depriving everyone of your evidence, but your taste buds do not lie.

PS: What the heck is an "alien color?"
