New York, NY – The biggest and brightest full moon of the year arrives Saturday night as our celestial neighbor passes closer to Earth than usual.
“This super moon, as it is known, will wreak havoc on the Earth,” said a scientist. “We’re predicting billions to lose their mind, the oceans to be pulled across the continents and almost ninety nine percent of all life will be destroyed.” He checked his notes before adding, “just as we predicted last year. Hopefully, this time we’ll be correct.”
