Monster Gas Cloud Heads Towards Earth

A massive cloud of hot gas is heading towards earth and an inevitable collision with our galaxy. Known as Episcopal Bishops Respond to Primates (EBRP) or the "Curry Cloud" for short, the huge gas cloud is thought to have originated close to home.


“Our galaxy is recycling its gas through clouds, the Curry Cloud being one example, and will form stars in different places than before,” said a spokesperson for the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland.


While astronomers are still attempting to explain why the cloud moved away from our galaxy in the first place, evidence from the Hubble telescope indicates that it has a high sulfur content. Some even theorize that the immense cloud of gas was caused by "dark matter."


According to an an astronomer with the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, “There are theoretical calculations suggesting that a dark matter satellite could capture gas as it passes through the Milky Way disk and that may be the amazing circumstance we are witnessing.”


The Curry Cloud has been poetically described by stargazing boffins as "what goes up must come down."


Mysterious radio signals emanating from the hurtling cloud of superheated gas are currently under investigation, but Ufologists may be in for a disappointment. "It's just gas," said one expert, "really, really hot gas."


The Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) was unavailable for comment.

Is this the take-away from your retreat?

The leadership of TEC is creating a mighty wind, but some say that it's the inevitable result of drinking stout beer and eating a lot of pickled eggs.

Padre, what were you guys smok'n at retreat?

Yeah, y'all might want to avoid get the "incense" from the hippie record shop in the run-down part of town.

You always get a lot of wind with a Curry.

LSP said...

I think stout and eggs are too honest, LL. But sulfur and 'dark matter" seem to indicate something... more infernal.

LSP said...

Just tellin' it like it is, B.

LSP said...

I will take that advice, Mattexian.

I miss a good curry, Anonymous.

Will female bishops be able to grow beards? You know, as a Muslim outreach?

LSP said...

Oh yes, Infidel, but only in the Diocese of London. And that seems pretty racist, I know, but one step at a time.

You know, LSP, this is the funniest thing I've read all week. Next time, just open a window or something so you can breath easier.

LSP said...

It's the gift that keeps on giving, Euripides.
