STOP PRESS: In space nobody can hear you eating chocolate cake

Scientists and pop musicians of the past have been baffled for ages by that old question "Is there life on Mars?" - or even out in the galaxies somewhere, anywhere?

The tummy mountain space-agency (TuMS) has dedicated a considerable amount of time (in between playing and bathtime) and resources (who could believe that there was that much stickytape!?!) to succeed in confirming that there is life on Saturn.


Two tummynauts using Ladder v2.01 for their successful trip to Saturn.

Detractors of this historic mission have pointed out that the tummynauts did not originate from Saturn, and therefore the big questions are not answered. The tummy mountain space-agency (TuMS) has responded that those spoilsports are not invited to the party at our place, and therefore cannot have any ice cream cake or fizzy drink.

In a second best effort which really should be applauded, the American Museum of Natural History, while lacking the scissors, paper and stickytape of TuMS, have responded with their make believe fairy tale of outer space.



Anyone with the ladder building skills of the tummy mountain space agency can clearly conclude this is ridiculous.

I thought I heard birds singing as I was watching the video but it turned out to be the squeaking of a small child's nose as he tried to suck his fingers and breathe at the same time.

Are there calories in Space Cake? That is the important question.

I'm not a detractor, oh no indeed! Please may I have ice cream cake and fizzy drink? :-)

My computer doesn't want to play the video though. I can't figure out if that makes it a detractor or supporter of TuMS, but as it doesn't like parties perhaps better not to invite it anyway...

You made me laugh Martha! I can hear that sound! There are no calories in any of the things we like to eat. Our tummies may disagree though...

Of course there is ice cream cake for you Mel! I think if your computer refuse to play the video it supports TuMS. It is on youtube at:

Despite its lack of scientific accuracy and lack of ladders Heather, I was amazed by all the satellites around the earth - making it look like Saturn.

Do the TuMS have any particular views on Pluto. I for one still firmly believe that replacing the title of "planet" to "rock" was just plain silly and not fair.

The little ones of TuMS do have a position regarding pluto. They will be releasing a statement through their press department in the near future.
