P O T C - News Flash - God Shuts Down Andromeda
A highly amusing but topical news flash from The Onion:
God Shuts Down Andromeda Galaxy
APRIL 29, 2010 | ISSUE 46'17
INNER DISK, ANDROMEDA GALAXY'Thanking the spiral-shaped celestial body for its 6.8 billion years of tireless service, Our Lord and Divine Creator announced Thursday His "very difficult decision" to close down the Andromeda galaxy for good. "Nobody ever wants to have to do something like this, but operating Andromeda on a daily basis has grown impractical and I can't in good conscience keep it going," God said of the incomprehensibly massive nebula, which is home to more than 1 trillion stars and an untold number of planetary objects. "So much has changed since I brought it into being, and to be honest, it's just not working out the way I'd hoped." A spokesman for the Supreme Being issued an apology to Andromeda's 750 quadrillion resident life-forms, who as of midnight Eastern Time on May 15 will cease to exist.

Definitely LOL. Thanks.
Oh, and just to nit-pick _The Onion_ (very unfairly), the Andromeda Galaxy is probably around 13 billion years old, i.e. roughly the same age as ours and nearly as old as the universe.
