image for Comet Holmes has Second Comet Behind it

Mount Palomar, California (IP) - A second satellite comet has been found near the comet Holmes according to reports issued from the Mount Palomar Observatory Campus. Astronomer Dr. Povenmire Finootch has issued the name of Watson to the companion comet.

Dr. Finootch said the decision was "elementary" and a real "no brainer".

Dr. Finootch says that the comet Watson is composed of a 7 percent solution of beer. The beer is frozen solid as the comet leaves the Oort Cloud in the outer reaches of the solar system and then begins to gush out of the comet's vents as the comet is warmed up while it approaches the sun.

The jets of beer act as though they were small nozzles or thrusters and create unpredictable variations in the comet's elliptical trajectory around the sun.

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