Scientists may have finally found out why it gets dark outside at night

A breaking scientific discovery has been reported: the reason it gets dark outside is that the sun gets eaten by a monster everyday. Max Colton, age 5, has been credited as the founder of this discovery.
“The reason there’s light during the day is that the sun hasn’t been eaten yet. The monster only comes out at night to eat the sun.”
Dr. Harry Colton, proud father and meteorologist, gave a comment: “Finally, a theory that makes sense. Now we won’t have to spend $30-million trying to figure out why it gets dark at night. A lot of people said that that the Earth revolves around the sun making some areas darker, but the Earth doesn’t seem be revolving from space. Therefore, my son’s theory is sound.”
When asked to describe the sun-eating monster, Max gave a detailed description. “It’s green with a long snake’s body and it has purple polka dots on its body. It has sharp teeth, which are perfect for eating the sun, and it wears red sneakers. It can also change into a human form just like a transformer and its human name is Kim-Il-Sun. That’s the name of the guy I saw on the news once. He had binoculars which prevented him from being blinded by the sun, but he was looking down. The sun is up in the sky, not down! Silly monster.”
Thanks to this scientific breakthrough, Max Colton is now richer than Justin Bieber. That’s something we can all be proud of.
