Summary:

In the chronicle "While strolling, I saw for you" of the local newspaper Le Courier de la Région de Fourmies for September 25, it was told:

"They say that on the side of La Houppe-du-Bois a flying saucer was seen... coming from the planet Mars. Marie-Louise even claims to have applied article 12 to a "Marcassin"... this is how this friendly dame calls our planetary neighbors."

"Fortunately, Gaston is not... lunatic."

While strolling, I saw for you

They say that on the side of La Houppe-du-Bois a flying saucer was seen... coming from the planet Mars. Marie-Louise even claims to have applied article 12 to a "Marcassin"... this is how this friendly dame calls our planetary neighbors.

Fortunately, Gaston is not... lunatic.

Explanations:

Journalistic invention, probably without base.

I would classify this anecdote as a "negative case", as nobody seems to have attached the least importance to it.

"La Houppe-du-Bois" is on the grounds of the commune of Fourmies.
