image for Man in Moon Considers Career Change
The Man in the Moon AKA Andrew Gilligan

The Moon, Space: The Man in the Moon told friends Sunday he's considering a career change, a move that would bring an end to a career that made him a familiar face all over the world.

The Man in the Moon (birth name Andrew Gilligan),who was employed directly by God when the spherical globe was created, said that while he appreciated the position he had been given, he felt that he'd now achieved everything he wanted to in the post and would like to take a new direction, preferably working days rather than nights.

In what friends are calling a mid-life crisis of sorts, Gilligan said he'd like to pursue his dream of touring the world with the rock group he formed in the 80s, Blue Moon, or working with marine biologists off the coast of Oregon.

"Andrew doesn't understand that just because nursery rhyme writers and REM have been trading off his name for years it doesn't necessarily follow that he can be a musician too," Gilligan's friend Saturn told reporters. "And that whole marine biology thing? Once he leaves that job his influence on the earth's oceans will wane considerably." Saturn also revealed Gilligan has been feeling restless since a cow jumped over him a number of years ago.

In a faxed statement to our office Gilligan told The Spoof, "I've given the best years of my life to this job. It's hard to shine every night, it takes it's toll. When things went wrong for me over the years I had to put a brave face on things, no one ever saw my dark side."
