Space - (The Final Frontier Mess): Worried NASA top brass issued a statement today describing an anomalous energy space signal as a tell-tale sign of the enigmatic phenomenon known as 'The Dark Nutter'.
The Agency's specialist astrophysics/parasitology division likened the signal origin to the throbbing of some pesky cosmic WIMPS - Weekly Interferring Missing Particles - which have dogged space exploration for generations.
"We reckon the Dark Nutter - or Master of the Universe as he prefers to be known - has waged a cosmic turf war with his minions," Prof V Smart explained, "bombarding dectractors with supersymmetric particles.
"These are generated by pulsars from magnetised neutron stars that emit regular pulses of radiation.
"Basically what this means for Earth is.....we'll all end up fried."
