I know, I know but I was just making a cheese sandwich, minding my own business and my cooker hood spoke to me. I'm not sure what it said but it was a bit like the noise you get when you're trying to tune the radio. Should I go down the garden with a colander on my head now?

Cover the entire cooker with foil first and you might just be OK.

Yes, yes you should. Hth.

To the tinfoilarium!

Oooh this is a bit like the " fillings in teeth picking up radio signals" story. Foil! Foil everywhere

What if it's not aliens but the dead? Like in the film white noise?

Don't cover the cooker in foil.

That's crazy talk.

It's yourself you need to cover, head to toe.

I believe the dead prefer grills. Definitely Aliens.

I have the colander on and I'm wearing a top with some sequins on (no foil in house) will that do?

Have you got a whisk?

Best to be armed....

It's not aliens, it's electrical pixies. They eat up all the electricity that's gone down the wire just as you switch something off. Have you fed them, they can get quite hungry.

<hands OP my emercency stockpile of tinfoil>

you need it more than me grin

You better learn the tune and hand signals to communicate. Have u got any mash potatoes to re create the mountain?

OTheHugeManatee Tue 02-Oct-12 13:22:17

You need to do this, OP. Urgently.

I've got an ancient packet of 'smash'. Could this be what they're after?

Wheresmycaffeinedrip Tue 02-Oct-12 13:29:46

Is there one of these in ur garden?

I object to the idea that my idea was ridiculous (covering the cooker etc). I did say 'first' as I thought it a reasonable suggestion as a first aid measure and assuming that the OP has a usual amount of foil in her house. Obviously I posted in a hurry as time is of the essence in these situations. I knew that more advice would be forthcoming as there is a lot of wisdom in the MN community.

OP have you had any further communication? I wonder if perhaps you caught a passing UFO's transmission. Even if there has been no further contact from your cooker hood I would suggest panic buying foil from all of your local stores. Keep buying in huge volume until after Xmas, do not allow your neighbours to get the foil, you need it all.

At least the turkey sized foil rolls should be arriving very soon, not a moment too soon!

OK, I thought that link would convert to a shorter more pithy thing by ticking the 'convert links automatically' button. Will have to work on that. however the link works so that's a plus point.

Ok I'm back. Have been in the loft and found the blanket that got put around she after a 10k race he did. So, I have foil blanket thing, whisk, colander. I am off to do school run now, will pop into tesco's for some turkey foil on the way back.

What do I do now?

Ooh, no further transmissions to report ATM.

Are you sure it's not Santa? Maybe he's been stuck in your extractor fan since Xmas...

YADNBU. My Mum's microwave had aliens living inside it.. whenever we used it it made veeeery strange noises, like little beings talking in another language. <dons tinfoil hat>
