That Little Rock worked so hard to get away from earth, just to be brought back by some flying space monkeys.

Wow. All they had to do was bring home a moon rock and instead brought home an earth rock. They had one job!

Is a meteorite from Earth, I never thought of such an idea would be possible but plausible.

When they added water to it, something started growing. Something ancient and horrifying.

Bruh the moon is above the Earth (I’ve seen it in the sky before) how would a rock fall to the moon? /s
