Mother Nature's Solution To The Oil Volcano

Houston, TX-- A 10-mile wide asteroid is expected to rocket through the atmosphere this afternoon and hit the Gulf of Mexico. The asteroid is heading right for the oil volcano and should be just big enough to plug the gusher and seal it tight. Scientists at NASA headquarters still aren't sure where the asteroid came from, they're just hoping it works.

"Some people think it's aliens helping us, and other people think it's God, either way it's pretty amazing." said head NASA scientist Dr. Karl Saygun. "It looks like we have a friend in Outer Space." he said.

The 10-mile wide asteroid is named Fallen Angel-2010. It is traveling at over 200,000 miles per hour, but is expected to slow dramatically, once it approaches Earth.

"Once the asteroid hits the Gulf, it should slow down even more, and then it will slowly sink to the ocean floor, covering the oil gusher. The odds of this happening are literally a quadrillion-to-one." said Dr. Saygun.

Some at NASA are still concerned. It's possible the asteroid won't slow down and could make things much, much worse.

"No one knows where this asteroid came from." said Dr. Saygun. "Is it the best thing that ever happened, or is it the worst--only time will tell. Let's all hope for the best." said the silly scientist.

Breaking news from NASA is coming in... NASA telescopes show what looks like two horns and a tail on the giant asteroid. All Gulf coast communities are being evacuated...
