Kennedy Space Center, Florida - News of a small but significant behind the scenes brouhaha over top NASA officials' decision to broadcast a Beatles song into space has not yet reached the mainstream media. It is the latest in the ages long struggle between mothers vs. daughters vying for the patriarch's attention and affection that may soon be felt in every household with a girl between the ages of five-15-years-old and a jealous spouse.
"It's not fair," said 12-year-old Susie Whineburger. "Our daddies promised to beam a Hannah Montana song into space as a Valentine's Day present to us. Then our moms found out, real got jealous and made our dads change it to the Beatles."
So, Susie Whineburger and a few dozen of her friends who are also daughters of top NASA administrators started text messing each other to see what they could do to change their daddies' minds.
"We got together and baking heart shaped cookies," said Susie Whineburger. "Then we each sent handmade cards with sprinkles explaining to our daddies' how much Hannah Montana means to us."
That was until their meddling mothers got word of the plan and put dear old dad out on the living room couch to think it over.
"My poor dad slept out on the couch for 3 nights in a row now," said Beth Bier with tears in her eyes. "Until I told him it was okay for him to play the Beatles song in space."
However, most Hannah Montana fans are not as understanding, or forgiving, and they have vowed to join the nationwide resistance in the form of a massive protest on a nightly base, one that threatens to bring the nation to a virtual standstill, if not bring down all of Western Civilization, as we know it.
Unsuccessful at convincing their fathers' at NASA to change their minds back to playing a Hannah Montana tune into space, the hardcore group of fans have plans in motion to organize and protest their dads' action by not brushing their teeth or putting in their retainers before they go to bed and flunking their math finals.
"We don't know what to do," said a NASA administrator with a wife and tween daughter hardcore Cyrus fan at home. "Most of us have been sleeping on the couch of several nights now and none of us have had a good night's rest. The only positive thing to come out of this is that none of us have neither our wives or daughters are talking to us and we're all saving bundle on toothpaste."
