Standing on the observation platform, the Commander and a Sub-commander of the spaceship looked at the blue orb known as Earth. The craft’s sensors detected a planet devoid of human life.
Soon the scouts they had sent to investigate returned. The lead scout reported to the platform where the two officers waited.
“Did you find any sign of the Humans?” the Sub-commander asked.
“None,” answered the Scout.
“What caused their disappearance?” the Commander asked.
“I can only speculate,” the Scout began, “But they may have bought and used so much toilet paper during the pandemic that they wiped themselves out.”
