In response to NEWSFLASH: Jane Austen a Space Alien!!!, written by The Mysterious H.C. on April 01, 1998 at 12:05:55
...Jane Austen was actually an outer-space extraterrestrial visiting the planet Earth...Jane Austen is the first non-human sentient intelligent being whose existence has been confirmed and attested. "Austen's generally cool detached and ironic pose shows external objectivity that only an alien viewpoint, standing entirely outside not only the conventions of the society of Regency England, but also outside the common assumptions of what is taken for granted in human cultures, could adequately provide"...

Very funny pictures and commentary on Jane Austen's "alien" status.
You sound just like some of JA's literary critics who make statements
just as "far-out" regarding her life and writings, with about as
much "evidence" as your spoof on her "alien" status.
