HOUSTON - Word coming out of The Johnson Space Center is that there are rumblings within NASA regarding the name of the Milky Way.

NASA spokesman Trent Timmelfarb let the space center news media know that there are some upper echelon officials with the space organization who are trying to find ways to bring in some much needed revenue.

Timmelfarb stated that an unnamed senior executive suggested that NASA approach the company that produces the Milky Way candy bar and let them know that they will be required to pay a fee in order for the name Milky Way to remain in effect.

The chocolate company will be told that if they do not wish to pay the fee then NASA will drop the name Milky Way and it will be replaced with a new name of a company who agreed to pay the fee.

SIDENOTE: Timmelfarb stated that it is his understanding that a NASA representative from HR (Human Resources) has spoken to a vice-president for Starburst which could possibly end up replacing Milky Way.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
