Iowa, USA - A giant fireball strafing the Iowa/Minnesota border may not be meteor debris as first reported but giant chunks of a Thanksgiving comet that exploded during a brush-past with the sun last month.
Locals who witnessed the phenomenon said that bits of charred turkey and pecan pie had been raining down from the heavens ever since last night in a clear indication that November's meat-feast comet was behind the shower.
"I even found bits of burnt turkey wishbone on the porch," a St. Paul, Minnesota resident told reporters, "a clear indication that puts Comet Ison in the frame."
Official NASA prognostications reckon the fiery fragments of 'space crap' probably hail from the Quadrandtitz - uh...Quarandits! - meteor shower during its annual fly past of the US Midwest.
