Obamacare & NASA Agree: Explore Space with Fat People

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FL - In a bold move, NASA and Congressional aides writing healthcare reform have agreed to explore the solar system with overweight Americans. "This innovative approach will eliminate a growing at-risk population from the healthcare system, while allowing NASA to save thinner, more photogenic personal for important missions," said Congressional spokesperson Meme Brown. The plan envisions the formation of a Bureau of Heft that determines who is overweight. Those designated 'encumbered' will be bused to the Space Center, shown a Presidential video thanking them for their service, then shot into the solar system to examine asteroids or Martian moons. "Computers and sensors perform all the work, so they won't have much to do." said Brown. "We're hoping a lot of the encumbered like to read, though there won't be room for actual books." Brown hopes the program will grow in popularity, thereby increasing funding. "That way, in time, maybe NASA can figure out how to bring them back...provided they weigh less." (Photo:
