In sixty seven, I was first found
By a couple of scientists poking around

It was quite a novelty they did detect
Little green men might cause the effect

They stuffed me in a bag for a catchy new name
Soon cousins were found, but we're not all the same

The theories abound on what makes us tick,
If you know what I am, then answer now, quick!
