Sun Begins Puberty, Say Scientists

Funny story written by Steve Shaw

LONDON-In the midst of the recent solar flares to erupt on the sun's surface, scientists have been hypothesizing to find a reason for the sudden activity. After days of deliberation, Geoff Hayward, an associate professor at Oxford University, came forward and announced his breakthrough discovery that earth's sun is beginning puberty.

"This recent breakout of solar flares, if you will, marks the beginning of a very interesting and uncomfortable time for our sun. We must try to be understanding and realize that these small tantrums are part of the life cycle that every sun and its planets go through." Hayward noted that Earth should be wary of sudden mood swings, growth spurts and irregular behavior, but also says it is completely normal and not a cause for alarm. "It's simply another stage in the life cycle of our sun," he said.

"We must keep a firm grip on our sun and be careful to not give it too much liberty. The key is positive reinforcement with some restraint." He said at a special scientific convention held in London. "The sun may begin to feel independent. For example, it may begin to think it can rise and set whenever it wants to, and it is our job, as it's planet, to be prepared to discipline it out of love."
