Nevada City, CA — An out-of-area man has made a startling discovery after his girlfriend send him a series of Google Street View screen shots. Chelsea Christner hadn’t met Thomas Ritchie of Citrus Heights, CA, whom she met online using the popular dating website Plenty of Fish. The two decided to met at her Valley Street house in Nevada City, so she sent him the directions and a series of Google Street View screen captures to help him find her home.
“I was real excited to meet Chelsea,” said Mr. Ritchie in a Gish Gallop telephone interview, “We have been chatting for over 2 months online. I even sent her flowers and other gifts. So when she asked me to come up to Nevada City, I couldn’t wait. Look, I wasn’t expecting to see aliens or nothing like that.”
According to Mr. Richie, he didn’t see the creature in the photo at first glance, but he did notice the alien while approaching Ms. Christner’s home in his car .
“Yeah, so I looked down at the picture, and there it was,” continued Mr. Ritchie. “An alien bugger. It kinda ruined our date cause when I got to Chelsea’s house, that’s all I wanted to talk about and I think it freaked her out. I guess I don’t blame her.”
Gish Gallop spoke with local forensic photography expert Carl Pendelton, who is a private contractor for the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding the photograph.
“I see fake photos all the time,” said Mr. Pendelton from his Auburn, CA ranch. “I really can’t tell if this is real or not. What I can tell you is that I don’t know what it is, which means a lot of different things. If it’s fake, then whoever faked it really knows what they’re doing. And that’s more of a concern for me.”
It’s unclear what the alien creature was doing in the bushes at the Sacramento Street location. It has not been spotted again nor have area residents spotted anything unusual.
