‘What Were They Thinking!’

DUNDEE—A Canadian television production company met with UFO enthusiasts
Monday at Benson’s Holiday Hide-A-Way to speak with bar patrons
their experiences with aliens.
The film team from Vancouver is stopping at different sites throughout
the United States and Canada filming a television show called
They Thinking!” The show is scheduled to premiere in Vancouver
September and may appear later in the United States.
“We’re doing these things in a lighthearted way,” said Nick Orchard,
show’s director and producer. “But we don’t make fun.”
Bonnie Meyer, who was interviewed for the show, says she has been
on board an alien ship. She told the show’s host Sean Cullen
met the captain of a spacecraft, that he was friendly and that
allowed her to view the entire spacecraft. She said not all aliens
out to harm people and the aliens she has met have been friendly.
Cullen is a standup comedian, had his own special on Comedy Central
starred in the short-lived “Sean Cullen Show.”
The show is stopping at roadside attractions throughout the United
States and Canada during a 14-day tour, viewing the world’s largest
penguin and the largest talking cow. Orchard said he heard about
Daze and the Holiday Hide-A-Way near Dundee through the Internet.
Benson’s will host the 16th annual UFO Daze on Saturday, July
Benson’s owner Bill Benson says his pace is UFO headquarters.
said the reason the bar hosts UFO Daze every year is because
sightings have been reported over Long Lake.
Last year, UFO Daze attracted around 300 people from eight states.
Benson said more than 100 people have witnessed UFO sightings
“We decided to have UFO Daze so people could tell their stories
being laughed at,” Benson said.
Benson’s bar is filled with UFO paraphernalia, including alien
drawings and replicas of aliens stored inside glass containers.
Jim of West Bend said he was skeptical of UFOs before his
sighting in 2000. Since then he has written “Evidence of Alien
Revealed in Scripture.” The book focuses on Bible verses, which
thinks imply the existence of UFOs in Biblical times.
He said the first UFO he saw was over Long Lake. He described
it as an
elongated pyramid that was about the size of a quarter held at
length. The believers at Benson’s are quick to share their UFO
and alien encounter stories.
Robert “UFO Bob” Kuehn of Fond du Lac hosts a radio show on KFIZ
about 10 minutes every Friday. Kuehn said he has spotted aliens
times and said he speaks directly with the aliens.
“This is not a hoax,” Kuehn said. “You can call me a crackpot
whatever you want.”
