Cow and Boy Classics by Mark Leiknes for October 19, 2008
"That movie 'Space farmer' with Billy Ray Cyrus got me thinking." "It's the 'astronaut farmer' with Billy Bob Thornton, but go on." "Any idiot can build their own spaceship and blast off into outer space." "He was an astronaut, and it was only a movie, but go on." "Just imagine flying through space! Exploring the physical bounds of the galaxy. Uncovering the dark mysteries of the universe." "Like black holes. Did you know that nothing escapes a black hole, not even light? The pull is so strong that if I orbited the edge of a black hole, I'd weight like a billion pounds." "So i'll need a pretty strong spaceship. Speaking of which, how's it coming along, Martin?" "One more pass with the duct tape oughta do it." "How is it he built a time machine four months ago?" "Hey, you think we're gonna need another upside-down garbage can thruster?"
