WILMINGTON, NC — In a stunning and completely untragic turn of events today, Comet Lunin, approaching it’s closest distance from the Earth’s surface, has unexpectedly landed unharmed in a local suburban backyard. Authorities were quick to the scene but even quicker to leave upon learning of the comet’s well-being.
“We’re just glad the comet wasn’t hurt,” stated Chief of Police, Jim Deaverson. “I mean, it’s not everyday a comet lands in your city. I’m honored really,” Deaverson added while photographing the crash site with a cellular telephone camera. “Awesome.”
While Comet Lunin may have landed safely, an unluckier bystander was fatally smashed/combusted as the comet crashed directly on his plane of existence. Sources unanimously claim that the victim “just shouldn’t have been standing there.” Although this is a seemingly tragic story, Sgt. Deaverson has urged concerned citizens to overlook the sole fatality and instead focus on the “shear awesomeness” of comet crash.
