Mount Palomar, California (IPP) - The impending arrival of the new year has been put off for an additional 24 hours this year.

Scientists operating the atomic clock at the U.S. Naval Observatory discovered a small warp in the local space-time continuum which forced them into making this decision.

The scientists apologized for any inconvenience caused by the delay in the arrival of 2008.

The delay in the new year's arrival is expected to cost over one-trillion dollars in the United States. The scientists claim that there is no way to explain the reason behind the move to the general public because of their inability to comprehend such matters of scientific importance and that the public will have to be content and just go along with the plan without question.

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