WASHINGTON D.C. – The National Aeronautics and Space Administration released a statement Thursday reporting that the line of customers at Mister Goodies, a renowned ice cream hot-spot in Lynchburg, VA, was visible from outer space.
While on his way to make a rendezvous with the International Space Station, astronaut Richard Arnold happened to look over his shoulder and out of the starboard window of the spacecraft. It was then when he spotted what he described as a “massive line of people craving quality and affordable soft-serve ice cream” in the vicinity of central Virginia.
Arnold transmitted his observation to headquarters in D.C., but it proved to be old news, as the line had already reportedly reached the front door of HQ.
“You could see it on their faces,” Arnold relayed via satellite communication. “Those people wanted what that tiny trailer had to offer. I caught a quick glimpse of the prices just as I entered the thermosphere – I don’t know how they keep them so low!”
Arnold reported his dismay when he received a transmission saying that Mister Goodies was closing for the season on October 30, just weeks before his return to earth. They will re-open in March, reportedly.
