Something Unexpected On The Sun

Houston, TX-- NASA astronomers are unable to explain an alarming new mark on the face of the sun. A perfectly symmetrical bulls-eye has developed on the sun in the last three days. No one seems to know what it is.

Astronomers first thought the bulls-eye was just a normal sunspot. It kept growing and it soon developed concentric circles of black, red and blue. The bulls-eye now covers about 50% of the sun's surface and is still growing.

"Well, it is unusual." said NASA spokesperson Dr. Karl Saygun. "It looks like a target of some kind..." he said before running off to an unscheduled meeting with the president.

Talk radio hosts and the alternate media soon began following the unusual phenomenon; the mainstream media refused to cover the story.

"It's the end the world!" lamented one talk show host. "Aliens are doing this--and they are going to kill us all for fun!"

Dr. Saygun left his unscheduled meeting with the president. There were tears in his eyes as he spoke to a few reporters of the alternate media.

"Jupiter and Saturn are missing." said the ashen-faced astronomer. "We think they are heading for the sun..." said the shaken Dr. Saygun.

"Apparently some bored aliens flying past the Solar System are playing a game--sort of like billiards." said Dr. Saygun. "Our Earth may be next." he cried. "We are trying to contact them but they aren't responding."

The mainstream media still refused to cover the story. They ran a story about the Kardashian sisters instead.

"Oh well." said a talk show radio host. "We all thought the world would end in 2012--no one ever thought it would be like this!"
