Status: O LUCIFER'S RUBBER TRUNCHEON ************************** The object was thirty miles long and fourteen deep. It tumbled end-over-end on an Earth-intercept course. As it passed inside Neptune's orbit, high-resolution telescopes revealed its topography bore an unnerving resemblance to Bozo the Clown's head. Quickly exhausting conventional strategems, scientists implemented non-standard solutions. Unfortunately, the enormous spring-loaded boxing glove experienced navigational problems. The giant seltzer bottle failed to deflect the meteor. Eventually the catastrophe was heroically averted by a kamikaze cream pie the size of Chicago. This universe contains puzzles beyond the ken of science. We must expect encounters that are not merely strange and mysterious, but downright goofy. -- This post is COPYRIGHT 1995, Andrew Solberg.
