image for Obama Accidentally Scuttles Secret Dark Side of the Moon Base
Little is known of the top-secret facility.

Panic struck the special unit of the NSAS (National Security Agency - Space) after President Obama inadvertently cut all re-supply spending in the 2010 budget. Although all requests for information have been denied through Freedom of Information Act filings, the top secret project has been exposed through more Earthly sources.

According to recent paperwork filed at the Cocoa Beach office of the Florida Unemployment Office, a number of wrongful termination claims have been submitted. Paper work reveals: Upon hearing of the budget cuts, NSAS secret moon base employees immediately shredded all paperwork and jettisoned back to Earth, only to find pink slips in their in-boxes. Janitor Willie Lincoln claims to have met a number of the special agents while smoking cigarettes in front of the Unemployment Compensation office building, "They were real pale, skinny, and pissed off."

A recent Google News search led to this excerpt from the New Mexico Grange Monthly: "We're used to the black box projects hovering over the fair grounds, but these weren't the usual "meteors"", farmer Wayne Johnson said with a wink. "I personally had to give two accountants and a water purification specialist a ride into Roswell."

Fate of the Reagan-era secret moon base is now in question. Under NASA administrator Charlie Bolden, space exploration specialists must now revamp all plans for the 2030 trip to Mars. Off-the-record sources have indicated that the base was to be used as a rest stop, but during the unfortunate evacuation, they left all of the lights on. Without regular maintenance and recharging of the batteries, it is feared that the snacks in the vending machines will become stale and the toilets will overflow.

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