NASA has discovered two massive objects hurtling through space towards Earth. They reckon ones a comet but as one scientist says "We're fucked if we know what the other bastard thing is. The ship from Blakes 7?"
Upon hearing that yet another foreign body may be impacting on their lives hundreds of Brexiteers took to the streets waving pitchforks and torches.
Confused police were soon drafted in to make sure the protest went smoothly. When scientists tried to calm the advancing and wildly illiterate mob down with "facts" they were accused of being "unpatriotic" and swiftly burnt at the stake.
With the voice of reason dealt with some of the more vocal Brexiteers championed a attack on the local telescope. The logic being "if we can't see it it can't effect us".
They marched off down the street arguing over which minority group to blame for this. Many claimed in the march quickly claimed they weren't racists and didn't want to blame any minority group. But then they continued to march with them towards the telescope anyway.
Luckily for the British space industry a big red bus drove past the Brexiteers. The words "The asteroid (that's that big ass rock up in the sky) isn't going to hit us. We'll be fine. Go back to your homes"
Upon reading this they all shrugged their collective shoulders and went back to their homes.
Thank God Brexiteers believe everything they read on the side of a bus
