    Default Astronomy and Sunday Comics



    From the Sunday funny paper “Shoe"

    The professor is on his computer and Shoe is standing behind him.

    Professor. “This is the coolest website of the stars”
    Shoe. “ you mean Brad Pit, Anglina Jole?”
    Professor. “ no, I mean Alpha Centauri, Polaris

    next: the professor is looking through his huge SCT and Shoe is standing behind him


    Professor “the beauty and wonder of it never fails to amaze me.”
    Shoe. “Do you think intelligent life exists out there, some where?
    Professor. “I have no doubt of it”
    Shoe smugly. “Why don’t they contact us?”
    The Professor knowingly. “Well … They’re intelligent.”
