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.''

Was the comet deep-fried? Was it stuffed with cheese? Was there bacon? Sadly, we'll never know.
