Fargo, ND – City officials are trying to not start a panic while announcing that a large comet may hit downtown Fargo sometime next year.
The comet is named X-51 and is believed to be from the Taurus constellation.
Cometologists have determined that its size is roughly equal to two Fargodomes.
Tim Stellars from the National Comet Observation Bureau says: “If you added another upside-down Fargodome to the bottom of the actual Fargodome, that is about the size and shape of Comet X-51, which is headed straight for downtown Fargo.”
Fortunately, NCOB has calculated that the chance of a direct hit on downtown Fargo is less than 100% but unfortunately have put it at about 80-90%, give or take 5%, after dropping the decimal point.
City officials are discussing the problem and also the possible huge increase in binge drinking due to this “unsettling news”.
We will continue to monitor this developing situation and provide updates on a Need-To-Know basis.
