A coast guard vessel which confiscated an asteroid with a creature inside has sunk to the bottom of the ocean. According to a major drydock contractor, there is no reason for the fast-boat to have sunk.
"I swear that my company earns every penny that we get from the US government. We inspected that boat and found it to be totally sound," said Shandly Tonslindale, president of Tinkletown, a company that sub-contracts with the United States Government to plug up holes in Coast Guard vessels and bathtubs and toilets. "If that thing sunk, it was not our fault."
The crew of the vessel were rescued by ocean voyager, Tyler Plomo, who, while cruising in his houseboat, spotted the three guys and one gal floundering around in phosphorescent life rings.
Bystanders on the docks expressed concern for the creature in the asteroid. Bababji Smith, ten years old, stated, "I sure hope that creature can hold its breath. Ha ha."
