People in New Jersey Stopped Their Cars on the Highway to Look at a UFO That Was Just the Goodyear Blimp

I often think of George Carlin's iconic line, "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that." It rings painfully true in this situation.

Last night, with Monday Night Football at MetLife Stadium between the Giants and Steelers, the Goodyear Blimp flew over New Jersey in the vicinity of the stadium. One might assume most people living in the area would at least have knowledge that a big football game was going on and/or what a blimp looks like.

They did not.

Also, I know people from New Jersey are a bit different than the rest of us, but if you genuinely believe you are seeing a UFO, stop and think for a second, "Would where I am right now be a place an intelligent alien species want to visit and potentially extract people from?" And if you're in New Jersey, realize the answer is most definitely "no" and work on figuring out what is in the sky.

I just really love the internet. Thirty years ago, we'd have no idea that people literally pulled their cars over to look at a blimp thinking it was an alien spacecraft. Now, not only do they do that, but they broadcast it themselves and provide the rest of us with a chuckle.

New Jersey: Florida, but without the fun parts.
