When the meteor fell to earth, a piece broke off in the atmosphere and landed on Mimosa Lane, taking out a chunk of road the size of a Buick. The residents, busy getting ready for work, rushed out to their front lawns.
“We’re under attack!” Some people screamed. Others marched their families back into the house and straight into their bomb shelters, not even stopping to finish breakfast.
When emergency crews arrived, they discovered that the hole in the street was shaped like an “X”. Speculations of this being a SIGN or perhaps even ALIEN TREASURE were tossed around wildly.
“I say we find out!” One neighbor declared.
Equipment was rented and permits obtained. After digging for weeks in an ever-widening area, the residents unearthed an ancient Indian burial ground. Though crestfallen, everyone on the block helped themselves to a skull souvenir before filling in the hole with steaming asphalt.
