Houston, TX-- NASA astronomers believe they have discovered the first gay comet in Outer Space. If true, it will be only the second gay heavenly body ever discovered. The planet Saturn came out of the closet earlier this year.
Comet ISON is expected to pass by the earth in late November. Recent photos of the comet have made NASA astronomers begin to think it might be gay.
"It's just a little too sparkly, a little too showy." grimaced famed astronomer Karl Saygun. "It's sort of mincing along right now in an effeminate fashion, just taking its time--it's not very manly." he frowned.
Comet watchers have also noticed that Comet ISON has an unusual tail. It's sticking up instead of out.
"You can always tell by looking at the tail." snickered Dr. Saygun. "I can spot one of them a mile away." he said with contempt.
Whatever its sexual orientation, the comet is expected to whip by the sun early in '14 and then head back off into Outer Space.
"It will probably hook-up with some gay asteroid or meteor and then go off into the Oort Cloud for some sleazy sex. It's all they ever think about." said Dr. Saygun
