An explosion in an Arizona frozen pea factory has seen 15,673,902 peas hurled into the earth’s atmosphere and possibly even into space. The accident, which happened on a Tuesday, occurred when there was a malfunction on the packing line of the Birdsear Frozen Pea Company. Fortunately no one was harmed during the incident. However the sudden influx of frozen peas into the sky is causing meteorologists concern.
“We have already seen an increase in freak weather conditions. I mean it’s peaing down everywhere and there have been numerous incidents of pea hail landing in strange places such as the Arizona Desert and Ted’s Grill & Bar on the corner of 46th and Main,” said weather watcher Wendy Raindrops.
“There has also been a report of pea soup fog in a suburb of LA, something that hasn’t been seen since the famous pea soupers in London in the late 19th century. “
NASA too are very concerned about the results of the explosion.
“Everyone knows that its very cold in space and those who eat frozen peas will be aware how they like to clump together in the freezer. We pea eaters are always having to bash the hell out of the bag to get them to unstick from each other. Imagine the problems a huge frozen ball of peas will cause to our satellites and space hardware,” said NASA spokesperson Charlie Sputnik. “Our only hope is that they break up and cook when they re-enter the earth’s atmosphere, otherwise it could pea a distaster!”
