If you think the Double Down phenomenon is something, you should note that according to MSNBC, the Sun - you know, the blinding orb around which you are revolving this very second - ate an entire comet last weekend in full view of a space observatory and God and everybody, and didn't feel compelled to tweet about it even once. The comet, says MSNBC, "a stranger to astronomers, is now doomed to anonymous obscurity.''
