The crowd raiding Area 51 successfully penetrated the base’s defenses Friday, but was bummed to find out that the base had converted to a Costco Wholesale years ago.

The Air Force personnel – now largely Costco greeters – didn’t put up much of a fight, until it was time to show Costco membership cards at the door.

“Where are the aliens, dammit?!” one angry raider was heard yelling at the door, only to be told to calm down and that the 900 count of Kirkland Signature Baby Wipes was on sale if he was interested.

Many in the crowd left angrily, but several still stayed to get great low prices of bulk items.
