One day, going about on its mad race around the sun, the Earth did not notice the giant space eel swimming towards it.
The eel, however, was thirsty and noticed that the Earth was really juicy, so it swallowed it whole, and went on its way.
Some people missed the sunlight, but most, since they were being digested, paid it no heed.
I just re-discovered this on an old backup-cd. I wrote it in 1999, and I really can’t remember where it came from or what it meant. But it’s kind of funny, so here it is ;)
