SO THIS THING'S GOINGTO DESTROY THE WHOLE CITY?

WHAT THE HECK IS IT?

AH, JUST AS I THOUGHT.

THE ANSWER LIES IN THIS MOVIEI FOUND ON THE INTERNET.

( dramatic music playing )

Man: NEW YORK CITY: THE YEAR 2000.

THE MOST WASTEFUL SOCIETY IN THE HISTORY OF THE GALAXY

AND IT WAS RUNNING OUT OF PLACES

TO BURY ITS NEVER-ENDING OUTPUT OF GARBAGE.

THE LANDFILLS WERE FULL.

NEW JERSEY WAS FULL.

AND SO, UNDER COVER OF DARKNESS

THE CITY PUT ITS GARBAGE OUT TO SEA

ON THE WORLD'S LARGEST BARGE.

( whistling tune )

THE REPULSIVE BARGE CIRCLED THE OCEANS FOR 50 YEARS

BUT NO COUNTRY WOULD ACCEPT IT--

NOT EVEN THAT REALLY FILTHY ONE.

YOU KNOW THE ONE I MEAN.

FINALLY, IN 2052, THE CITY USED ITS MOB CONNECTIONS

TO OBTAIN A ROCKET AND LAUNCH THE GARBAGE

INTO OUTER SPACE.

SOME EXPERTS CLAIM THE BALL MIGHT RETURN TO EARTH SOMEDAY

BUT THEIR CONCERNS WERE DISMISSED

AS DEPRESSING.

WOW, YOU GOT THATOFF THE INTERNET?

IN MY DAY, THE INTERNETWAS ONLY USED

TO DOWNLOADPORNOGRAPHY.

ACTUALLY, THAT'S STILL TRUE.

Now that the garbageis in space, Doctor

perhaps you can help mewith my sexual inhibitions.

With gusto.

AW.
