Disaster or Tourist Attraction?

After years of drawing in a string of UFO enthusiasts New Mexico now has something new to see; the moon. Scientists can only speculate why the moon fell from orbit late last Saturday. "We now have both a UFO and an IFO (Identified Falling Object) tourist attraction. It doesn't matter whether you prefer mysterious and unknown space debris or the more familiar, New Mexico has something for you," says a spokesman for the tourism industry.

Local residents were awakened late Saturday/early Sunday depending on whether or not you count daylight savings time by "a great big ruckus. Good thing it hit outside of town; I mean no one got squashed except Homer Lucky."

No word yet a how this will affect plans to build a UFO-themed amusement park near Roswell. Some advocate canceling the construction until moon based rides and games can be added to the design. Others feel the park should remain a haven for the pure UFO enthusiasts.

No one is sure whether the collision of the moon and earth will impact global warming, but it seems evident the coastal areas will experience a change in tidal patterns.

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