Astro nut?

Talk about cyberspace!

This story
surely took off (chuckle chuckle). I trust Ms. Nowack didnt understand the gravity (get it? "gravity") of her actions. Either she was spaced out, on another planet (I'm going to keep going with this for a while I think), or a bit flighty. (I'll be here all week,don't forget to tip the waitresses.)

The bottom line is that "Houston, (I mean Orlando), we have a problem."

Apparently, in a statement, the target of her affection said:

"I think it's gonna be a long long time, till touch down brings me round again to find, I'm not the man they think i am at home,oh no no no, I'm a rocket man."

I also understand that what made her so upset was when she was told:

"Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids,
in fact it's cold as hell.
And there's no one there to raise them if you did.

By the way, there is no truth to the rumor that the car she used to drive to Orlando from Houston was a Saturn.

Jail: The final frontier? Dont think so. This case will end quietly with a settlement including counseling and an apology.

As her career as an astronaut is probably over, I trust her bond was given as a result of a finding that she is not a flight risk (ba-dum-bump).

  1. Great time to be Leno or Letterman. These jokes write themselves. If only she had stayed home and watched the Superbowl.

  2. OK OK. I'll buy you another round....
