Some Believe Mysterious Asteroid May Actually Be a Space Probe

Some Believe Mysterious Asteroid May Actually Be a Space Probe:  Some astronomers say there’s a remote possibility that a mysterious, cigar-shaped asteroid called Oumuamua, the first interstellar object ever seen in our solar system - which has been spotted making unexpected boosts in speed and shifts in trajectory, may actually be a gigantic alien solar sail, sent here to look for signs of life.  

Possibly, or - it could just be a frigg’n rock.  Now let’s think about this folks - we have a highly advanced, alien civilization that’s building its high tech equipment out of rock?  Sure, that sounds logical!  I don’t know about you folks, but I’d kinda like to believe that if some advanced alien civilization actually exists, it could at least come up with a way cooler looking space vehicle design than a big chunk of elongated rock.  

Besides, if this asteroid really were some sort of advanced solar probe, designed to send broadcast signals back to its mother ship, wouldn’t it need to have a set of huge rabbit ear antennas sticking out somewhere in order to transmit those signals?  Of course it would.  So, where the hell are the rabbit ears?  That’s right - there are none - so let’s get real and accept the fact that it’s just a frigg'n rock.  

Either that, or it’s a gigantic glob of space alien poop which was carelessly discarded and has been floating around the universe for countless millennia - just waiting for unsuspecting civilizations to accidentally step on.  If this is true, then what a cruel bunch of jokesters those aliens are!  Look, all I can say is, whatever the hell this thing is - we, as a civilization, can only hope and pray this alien probe hasn’t been sent down to earth to kidnap all of those people who are on gluten-free diets.  God, I would miss them so much!

I don't know what it is, but I'd sure like to see some aliens shove it up tRump's fat ass.

In the movie "Star Trek IV The Voyage Home", the alien probe determined that the most intelligent life form on the planet was whales whose existence was being threatened by humans...
Just our luck that this thing shows up while we're trying to rid ourselves of the alien life form in the White House...

It’s the changes in trajectory that get me. I’m thinking it’s an enormous creature, probably called something like a Cigarene. The females of the species are called Cigarettes.

But the way, I'm not seriously expressing an opinion in this piece, I'm just trying to be silly.

I promise not to get into a discussion of the technical requirements of antennae.
