It was a dark and stormy night...
It was a dark and stormy night. Suddenly, a shot rang out! A door slammed. The Russians screamed.
Suddenly, a Pirate Party candidate appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the POTUS lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.
A light snow was falling, and the little girl with the tattered shawl had not sold a violet all day.
At that very moment, a young intern at City Hospital was making an important discovery. The mysterious patient in Room 213 had finally awakened. She moaned softly about the lack of affordable healthcare. Could it be that she was the sister of the boy in Kansas who loved the girl with the tattered shawl who was the daughter of the Russians who had escaped from communism only to embrace a bolder tyrant?
And so the space race was saved.
