The posts appear legitimate and are corroborated by several other members who participated in the discussions with Weise, so I posted a news story about the messages.
Because this appears to be the first media report on these messages, I needed something that trumpeted the exclusive, but I didn't want to borrow Matt Drudge's famous siren.
By combining a few images from another alert graphic, I have created the News Alert Banana:
A dancing banana: what a thing to find while listening to Great Shakin' Fever by Billy Hancock on Rockabilly Radio. Especially after 15 hours of sleep in the past four days. Took me a few seconds to realize that the banana and music were only coincidentally on the same beat.
That is a pretty cool graphic though.
