Media people should have long noses like an elephant to smell out politicians, mayors, prime ministers and businessmen. We need to know the reality, the good and the bad, not just the appearance.
A tiny sun and moon spin around them, on a complicated orbit to induce seasons, so probably nowhere else in the multiverse is it sometimes necessary for an Elephant to cock a leg to allow the sun to go past.

They’ve heard about space but they still don’t believe in it. They haven’t been out here to see for themselves that there isn’t any giant Elephant under the earth, holding it up, and a giant tortoise holding up the Elephant.
