LONDON, March 21 (UPI) -- In a Yahoo! News Internet poll, rocker Ozzy Osbourne has been named Britain's favorite ambassador to welcome aliens to planet Earth.
The poll of 1,000 Internet users was made shortly after signs of water were discovered on Mars, the Daily Telegraph reported Sunday.
The 55-year-old rocker, still recovering from serious injuries after an all-terrain vehicle mishap, was more popular for the job than Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair, U.S. President George Bush and even "Pop Idol" and "American Idol" judge Simon Cowell.
"Ozzy is a great choice, but I'm not sure what the Martians would make of his individual approach to the English language," a spokesman for Yahoo! News said. "Perhaps he could resort to the medium of music if all else failed and they didn't understand him."
