Praying to avoid alien abduction

Seeing as I have UFO's on the brain lately, (Blame the UK Ministry of Defense see reviews here and here) I noticed this in my virtual travels. This ex voto or spiritual offering was painted by a man thanking Our Lady of Guadalupe for protecting him from an alien abduction. He doesn't need to take the quiz to determine if he has been abducted or not. The combination of memes in this image may be unlicensed mixing of conspiracy theory, mythology, superstition and theology.
