Since the onset of the twenty-first century NASA has discovered a plethora of space junk floating around just waiting for something to hit it and send it hurtling earthbound. Likely this junk would just burn up on entry to our atmosphere but hey why take chances.
So it was decided that a group of intergalactic garbage men were recruited to gather space junk and have it destroyed before it did serious damage.
Ray Garcas and Cooper Bradley were on their swing shift looking for intergalactic detritus when they spotted something weird.
"HOLY CRAP" Coop was turning green as they discovered just what they had dragged in.
"Call it in Coop" Garcas was turning white as he issued the order to his second in command.
"Junker one to base, come in base."
"Whatcha got Junker one. Don't give me any gory details. I am dining on simulated steak here!"Coop was stuttering as he did when anxious. "W-w-we s-s-seem to h-h-have a f-f-floater out here?
"What kind of floater?"
Garcas cut in. "It's a dead body sir!"
"Quit yanking my chain guys! It's not April Fools yet."
Coop had found his voice again "No joke sir --this guys a goner. He's all green and.."
"Guys, dinner here; don't make me lose it!"
"Sorry sir, what do you want us to do?"
"Haul whats left of him in and I will have a forensics team meet you. Come back immediately, I will send Parker and Stiller in to replace you for the night.
"Roger that Sir." Garcas extended the arm from the scow and reeled the body in to the empty back up hold.
"Why do I get the feeling this is just the beginning of a bad dream?"
"This no dream Coop, welcome to our nightmare!"
