PHOENIX - Governor Jan Brewer has gone on television and informed the citizens of Arizona that Washington, D.C. has just advised her that a giant asteroid is headed towards their state.

The governor said she received the official word from Vice-President Joe Biden who informed her of the solar system projectile via a text message.

The vice-president stated that he assured the governor that President Obama and the United States Congress will do everything within their power to try and prevent the asteroid from landing in the state that is home to the self-proclaimed toughest sheriff in America, Joe "Pinky" Arpaio.

In the meantime he did let Governor Brewer know that plans are already being formulated to move the NFL Arizona Cardinals to Pocatello, the NBA Phoenix Suns to Mobile, and the MLB Arizona Diamondbacks to San Antonio should the need arise.
