This is breaking news. It is being reported today in the early morning hours that the International Space Station has formally declared that it is an independent nation and will sever all ties with the planet earth. This reporter has come by this exclusive story via a private written communication. I came by this communication while reading private written communications on the back door of the second stall in Braden's Bar located in downtown Boyne City. This story was buried within many local gossip stories and quips about the personal hygiene and dating habits of certain local individuals.
I can vouch for this being a new news story since the doors on the bathroom stalls at Braden's Bar get freshly painted over every Thursday. Bar Management says the fresh coat of paint each week is intended to make room for up to date news reports and not to eliminate complaints from patrons who may not want their personal information shared with the public. Bar management tells me that "Freedom of the Press" is sacrosanct and the back of the stall door is where most local residents get most of their press news. Of course yours truly checks out the stalls every Monday morning and I edit out with a black marker any unflattering lies and insinuations about yours truly. Unfortunately, most of the misinformation about yours’s truly is in the women's bathroom and I have to sneak in there or else I'll receive a reprimand from bar management if I get caught.
In regards to the ISS declaring its independence from earth, I have found few if any other references to their mutiny so I'll just have to say that this sudden action by the ISS is most likely the result of an alien influence. This influence or more likely takeover has probably been carried out by either Martians or by an intelligent species that inhabits the moon known as "The Great Leap." These two species are the closest known intelligent inhabitants to the planet earth and therefor have the most to gain from its conquest. However, I do not believe that hostile takeover has been orchestrated by Martians since they are too addicted to tobacco products to ever accomplish much of anything. It is said they just muck around all day on Mars smoking cigarettes and playing tetherball.
Now, the creatures on the moon known as "The Great Leap" are much more likely to be the instigators of the ISS plot against earth. The Great Leap might feel a need to get revenge against earth since a few years ago the U.S. launched nuclear strikes against Great Leap subterranean cities on the moon in the hope of destroying the Great Leap's ability to wage war upon the earth. Well, with this latest news from the International Space Station it looks as though the attempts to thwart an invasion of earth by The Great Leap has only spurred them on to seek revenge.
So, what should you do to prepare for the looming invasion by The Great Leap? Well, the first thing you should do is prepare for war by purchasing lots of guns and ammunition along with dry goods that can be easily stored for decades.
The second thing you should do is to run and hide. Of course I understand that running and hiding may not be the brave thing to do but, take it from me, it is the survivalist’s thing to do. After all, mice and rats have been running and hiding for tens of millions of years and look how it's worked out for them: they're still surviving and everyone screams when they see the mice and rats go scampering off into walls. Mice and rats have truly made it to the upper rung of the evolutionary ladder because few other creatures can create such terror simply by running away.
Now, the third thing you should do when the Great Leap invade is to hug you spouse and kids and tell them goodbye for the great leap are coming to kill them and probably will eat them alive.
Lastly, you should position your family members in front of you because you don't want them to watch you being torn apart by The Great Leap. Also, while you family is being killed and devoured by the moon monsters you might get a chance to slip away. After all, you can always get a new spouse and kids but, you can't replace yourself if you're dead.
For my part, I’m getting the word out about the ensuing invasion by the Great Leap by first publishing it on the internet. Of course after it has been read by about five people this story will undoubtedly be censured by all the governments and internet search engines of the world for having offensive content. Space aliens seem to have a lot of influence over what gets published and read on the internet.In addition to my online trumpeting of the ensuing invasion I will be busy visiting bathrooms in all the bars and restaurants I can get to in order to place the news directly in the public's eye and where most people get the really important news. And, this important story certainly deserves to be told there.
