Rep Lamar Smith (R-TX) to chair hearings on whether meteors exist
What the hell can anyone say about this???
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—The chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology said today that the committee would hold hearings next week “to settle the question, once and for all, of whether meteors exist.”
“The media has been in something of a frenzy recently on this whole topic of meteors,” said chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas). “I think it’s irresponsible of them to frighten the public about something that, at the end of the day, may be about as real as unicorns.”
Rep. Smith said that he had seen recent reports of the “so-called Russian meteor” of last week, but added, “Maybe it’s the scientific skeptic in me, but this ‘meteor’ may just have been a bunch of fireworks that some Siberian fellow set off after drinking a little too much Stoli. It is winter, after all, and that’s how those folks keep warm.”
Remember, Lamar Smith is a “man made global warming skeptic,” who once decried ABC, NBC, and CBS as having coverage on climate change that was “slanted in favor of global warming alarmists.”
And now he’s going to settle the question of whether meteors do, in fact, exist.
