Planet SpaceBall Preparing To Invade Namibia?

In a remote Namibian village last month, a large metallic ball fell from the sky, baffling authorities. While they've asked NASA and the ESA for help identifying the ball, the answer is painfully obvious - Planet Spaceball is sending Mega Maid to suck out all of Earth's air...

The ball, which measures 35cm in diameter and left a hole 33cm deep and 3.8 metres wide, fell about 750km north of the Namibian capital in the middle of November. Tests show that it is made of a metallic alloy known to man, weighs about six kilos, is hollow, and appears to have been welded together.

If you've got your hopes up that this actually is an alien probe, prepare to be disappointed. While neither NASA or the ESA has commented yet, it's most likely just some space junk off a satellite.

But if it is the precursor to a Spaceball invasion, let me the first to say, "Hail President Skroob!"




    This is the first headline I've read in a very long time that has legitimately made me sit up and say "WHAT THE F***!?"

    What does Namibia have to do with Spaceballs?

    Cue answer:

    "Absolutely nothing! Which is what YOU are about to become!"

      You mean... Why would the name "Spaceballs" be cunningly placed in an article about a ball falling from the sky???

      Nope - Can't think of a reason.

        You have to admit, without a context, the headline is *really* random.

          Yeah. heh. That's what a good headline does. Gives you enough "WTF" momentum to drive you into the article.

    Druidia...Namibia. Near enough.

    Photos look like the space ball from the Crocodile Hunter movie.
    Except in the movie, a crocodile eats it.

    May the Schwartz be wit you!
    I hear Alec Baldwin saying: "Try my Schwetty Balls... they're out of this world!"
