I always thought the Fortress of Solitude was in the North.


#3

Traditionally, the Fortress of Solitude is located in the Arctic, though more recent versions of the Superman comics have placed the Fortress in other locations, including the Antarctic, the Andes, and the Amazon rainforest.


#4

Well then that must be Superbaby’s landing.


#5

UFO? Ball of snow? Hmmm… the odds of these two being the cause are just about even.


#6

Well what do we actually know about how aliens travel around the galaxy? Maybe they fly in chunks of ice. I’d call this one unsolved and add it to the rotation on The History Channel.


#7

It’s a Goa’uld death glider


#8

It can’t be a UFO. Where are the tentacleprints?


#9

Giant sand worm on a ski vacation.


#10

Clearly a shoggoth.


#11

Too bad that YouTube’s revenue is inversely proportional to critical thinking.


#12

Don’t take any chances. Nuke it. Or maybe that’s just the MacReady in me talking. russell-the-thing


#13

Douglas Adams has written extensively on the topic.


#14

Boy, it’s weird how that UFO came straight off that mountain and crashed…


#15

A crashed UFO is no longer a UFO, it is a UCO (unidentified crashed object).

ETA: Actually, because the object in question was never known to be flying in the first place, it can’t be said that it crashed, so it’s merely a UO (more commonly called a thingamajig).


#16

Looks like one of these.

Disappointed it is probably a snowball.


#17

Climate change. It’s happening.


#18

The abominable snowman dropped a big log, and it slid down the slope. Don’t be near it when it thaws out.


#19

Maybe an ice giant lost his penis to global warming?


#20

Snow? In Antarctica? Yea, right.
