"We kid you knot," says Billy Harley, the proprietor of the Uig Hotel on the Isle of Skye. Harley was the Elliot who spotted smiling E.T. "inside the trunk of a tree he was chopping to make firewood for the popular bar of his hotel."
Harley was quoted as saying, “The weather has got a lot colder in the last week and I was getting some additional logs ready to keep the place warm for our guests. I put the chainsaw through a trunk and there was ET staring back at me. I phoned home and my wife brought a camera out to take some pictures.”
Harley's plans are uncertain, “We’re not quite sure what to do now. We could turn ET into a coffee table or a bar stool maybe.” So you can potentially enjoy your scotch whilst sitting on the tree face of a famous movie alien.
The Isle of Skye is certainly an appropriate place for E.T. to end up and the Harley family is hoping his appearance will drum up business and draw in folks who are "perhaps wishing for a glimpse in the sky of ET’s parents coming to collect him." They are also considering naming one the hotel rooms after the world-famous alien.
I guess you never know what you'll find when you're chopping wood? Adorable things, that's what! Matrixing is cool.
