The Green Rock, by Michael A. Kechula
Mars’ entire surface was red, except for a 10-foot green rock.
Princess ninja elf astronauts from Zorg stole the rock and took it to their galaxy.
Martians went ballistic. They sent a message to Zorg’s Emperor: “Your astronauts kidnapped out Goddess! Return Her immediately! Our churches are in chaos!”
The Emperor answered: “That ugly rock’s your goddess? How dumb! You idiots should worship our Sun like everybody else.”
Mars fired 100,000 missiles at Zorg’s sun.
CNN reported, “A sun exploded in another galaxy. Here’s an important announcement from Zorg’s Emperor: ‘All worship services are canceled for the next billion years.'”
