UFOlogists have for years reported strange encounters with men in suits who appear seemingly out of nowhere with a wealth of information that seems far beyond what any known government agency could have acquired without an extensive and all encompassing surveillance of the entire world. And yet these seemingly omniscient visitors don’t always act the same way the media depicts them. These dark clad G-men sometimes break character in bizarre and sometimes disturbing ways. Such is the case with the giggling MIB.
Our impression of these mysterious shadowy figures is so entrenched in the mythology of the UFO field that seeing them do anything different than the standard stern staring is strange enough. But it’s even stranger, perhaps that this change in behavior is not actually even uncommon. When the men in black appear they often are reported to behave strangely. Sometimes one will do the majority of the talking while another stands nearby and starts laughing as though they are in a constant state of losing their minds. While this might be humorous, strange, or even fodder for skeptics believing the phenomenon to be the result of a hoax, it’s evidence that these figures are not who they claim to be to others. And as with everything in UFO folklore, this too is quickly analyzed by researchers as they interrogate witnesses.
But the behavior doesn’t stop as a simple snicker. The figures are also said to have an overwhelming appearance of being out of place, often switching accents, quickly forgetting how to use even basic items such as doors, and marveling at items such as clocks and shoelaces. The result is a perception that the MIBs may not only be new to this world, but operating in entirely new bodies themselves. They’re said to tie their ties and shoes wrong often, and interact with simple artifacts such as glass ash trays as though they are somehow significant artifacts.
And the behavior is strange even to the witnesses who are living out the strange ordeal. Unlike typical government agents from the Air Force or some other branch of the military, these figures have been compared to extra dimensional entities. And witnesses who support the theory, suggest their inability to interact with the environments around them seem to suggest they may not even be from our own dimension.
Of course if you were designing disguises to operate under while investigating an alien incursion on a planet occupying a different layer of dimensional space, it would most likely be beneficial to have them appear human, even possibly belonging to an Earthly government agency. And when the questions started flying in the other direction, no figure would be better to quiet them down before they got too close – leaving your extra dimensional colleagues with ample time and resources to both cover the incident up and investigate them yourself.
