image for NASA in a Panic as Moon Slowly Deflates!
The moon is already less than half full and is deflating rapidly.

Huoston,Tx.-The United States' space Agency, NASA, is quietly panicking over the discovery that the device it sent crashing into the moon, has punctured the shell of the small satellite, which is now slowly deflating.

"What was once a beautiful full moon is now a shadow of it's former self, and getting smaller every day!" Exclaimed NASA's Chief Little Feather. "Seriously, we had no idea this was going to happen, and we have no idea what to do about it!"

Options being debated by NASA scientists range from launching a rocket with a giant plug as a payload directly toward the spot where the first rocket hit, to sending giant tanks of gas to the moon in hopes of re-inflating it.

A worse case scenario has the deflated shell of the moon coming to rest on the surface of the upper layer of the earth's atmosphere, partially blocking the sun. Such an event would surely usher in a new, and dramatically larger, ice age than has ever been experienced before. On the bright side, it would put an end to all of that global warming nonsense.

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