DEEP SPACE – Realizing it has been quite some time since it pulled a fast one on an unsuspecting planet, an asteroid near Saturn has decided it would be good fun to sneak up on Earth when it isn’t looking.
“I’m going to speed up to them like I’m going to slam straight into them,” the asteroid said. “They’ll freak out but really I’ll just zip right past them. It’ll be great.”
This wouldn’t be the first time the prank has been pulled on Earth. Another asteroid attempted to play a similar joke on the planet 65 million years ago; however, the rocky planetoid mistimed the stunt and crashed right into the unassuming planet. The incident created an awkward situation, as it wiped out most of Earth’s life forms.
“That wasn’t cool,” the presently hopeful asteroid said. “But don’t worry, my calculations are spot-on. This is absolutely going to work and be hilarious. I got this.”
As of press time, the astronomical object had begun charging toward Earth, giggling to itself as it imagined the shocked cries of approaching Armageddon that would erupt before everyone realized it was just a farce.
“I can’t wait to see the look on their faces,” the asteroid said. “This will be one for the history books.”
